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!

FAIL !
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
