Those of you who know me realize I have an interesting sense of humor.  I see it in life, and I see it in marketing.  This issue is a collection of things I’ve encountered this year that just don’t make sense from a marketing standpoint.  I hope you enjoy!
I don’t know about you, but I want to buy the tall kitchen garbage bags preferred by dogs.


What is Publix trying to communicate with the little foil animals on their aluminum foil packaging?


I usually don’t buy soup that the spokesperson scares me but someone obviously does.  He reminds me of the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld.



To fail is to be either:
Exceptionally bad at something, or to do/say something stupid to people, or for an item/thing to fail, it has to not be what it is, such as a funny comic not being funny, etc.

Tarzan Doll Fail:  **NOTE THIS IS OFF COLOR SO IF YOU ARE EASILY OFFENDED DO NOT VIEW THIS VIDEO**  Apparently the manufacturers didn’t really do much quality control.  I’d be mortified if one of my children ended up with this Disney product


Search Engine Fail:  Here is a commercial by BING, the new search engine by Microsoft.  So after seeing this commercial are you likely to go out and try it?


Gift Fail–We call this LEG OF LAMP:


Restaurant Fails:


Store fronts in Manhattan:


Well that’s it for this year!  I hope you enjoy.  As always, please forward this on to anyone whom you think will enjoy and of course, call or e-mail if we can be of help!

  1. I aam really loving the theme/designof your site. Do you ever run into
    any web browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog audience
    have complained about my website not working correctly
    in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any
    tips to help fix this problem?

  2. Simply want to say your article is as astonishing.

    The clarity for your publish is simply spectacular and i can assume you’re knowledgeable in this subject.
    Well together with your permission let me to take hold of
    your RSS feed to keep up to date with imminent post. Thanks 1,
    000,000 and please carry on the rewarding work.

  3. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who has been doing a
    little research on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss this issue
    here on your web page.

  4. These should not be used as they certainly do not
    do as they claim. Los Angeles cosmetic experts believe that breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty can help men with gynecomastia.

    This is a volumizing effect that women and men are also using to add volume
    to other parts of the body like the cheeks, elbows, hands,
    buttocks and more.
