Airline seeks bald men as walking billboards

September 10, 2008

Here’s a new way to market your brand.  Paint your logo on bald heads.  That’s what Air New Zealand is looking to do.  They want to put a temporary tattoo on the heads of bald men to generate awareness for their airline.  I think this story by itself is doing that.  Thumbs up to the marketing department for a zany idea.  You can check out the full story HERE.


The Marketing Of Michael Phelps Is A Long Term Plan

September 8, 2008

Michael Phelps has become a worldwide phenomen in what seems to be a few short weeks, but in reality the marketing plan for him has been in place for years.  I saw a very good article about the marketing of Michael Phelps in the the Daily Herald.  You can read it for yourself by CLICKING HERE.

I found it interesting that even though it looks like everything went according to plan his marketing team is concerned about overexposure for him now.  I also like the fact that he post to his own Facebook page, where he has over 1.5 million “Phans”.  What I really want to know is, is he a Christian?  I’ve seen a couple of different answers online to that question, but no official stance.  Hey Michael Phelps, if you want to promote your Christianity, I have a way for you to do it and let God get the glory for blessings you have received and for the blessings yet to come.

August 5, 2008

I have read that this commercial has been banned because of the brief nipple slip by Eva Mendes.  That’s a shame, but I bet this commercial will generate a lot of buzz for Calvin Klein and Eva on the web just because it was banned.  Yep, I’m helping with the buzz.  Buzz on! If you have a comment please let me know what you think.

I found it interesting…I hope you do too

DeaconDavid – Chew on This: Hit Song Is a Gum Jingle

July 28, 2008

DeaconDavid’s comment: I’ve never heard of this being done before, but I like how this was done. It really works because the song is already a mainstream hit.

Wrigley plans to reveal that Chris Brown’s top-10 hit song “Forever” is a commercial. It’s an extended version of a new Doublemint jingle written by the singer and scheduled to begin airing next month for the green-packaged gum.
