Welch's New Print Campaign - For A Tasty Fact, Remove & Lick

Madison Avenue thinks a tasty approach will give new life to Welch's grape juice.

Welch's is taking out full-page print ads in People magazine this month that give readers a chance to sample its grape juice by licking the ad. The front of the advertisement shows a huge bottle of the juice, while the back has a strip that peels up and off, with text that reads: "For a TASTY fact, remove & LICK."

Marketers are excited about the prospects for lickable ads, but also have to deal with the "ick" factor. Since magazines are often passed from reader to reader (think doctors' offices) there is a good chance that saliva could be left on the ad. Readers are supposed to peel off the entire sticker on the Welch's ad before licking, says First Flavor, the company that developed the technology used in the ad. If someone doesn't rip off the whole sticker, First Flavor says, the flap can't reseal, giving people an easy way to know whether the ad has already been licked.

I have to be honest with you, I am not licking any magazine!

Nike Bo Knows Diddley One of The Greatest Commercial Campaigns Ever Created

Nike Bo Knows 1989- The greatest of the Bo Knows commercials has to be - Bo, You Don't Know Diddley. The idea created by copywriter Jim Riswold came to him while at a local bar wrestling with ideas being thrown at him from patrons of the bar. Bo...Beau Brummell...Bo Derek...and then Bo Diddley, he knew Diddley was the one and then added You Don't Know Diddley and the cast of athletes.
Jackson stuttered badly and didn't utter a single word in the commercial instead endoresements came from other famous athletes from Wayne Gretzky to Micheal Jordan. When Nike previewed the commercial to employees at a sales meeting they jumper to their feet in approval, Nike stopped all their running shoe advertising, doubled it's budget and put everything behind "Bo Knows".
Nike first aired the commercial on the day of the baseball all-star game, and what perfect timing too for Nike, it ran right after Jackson hit a home run in his first at bat after the fourth inning. Jim Riswold was quoting as saying God is a Bo Jackson fan while watching the game.
Nike didn't run the commercial again for 3 weeks after that but they got a ton of free exposure to it from news, talk shows, Entertainment Tonight and even The New Yorker in a cartoon claimed that Bo Knows Fiction.

What made this commercial great? Within months of running it, Nike grabbed 80 percent of the new cross-training market, sales at the time grew from $40 million to $400 million and very simply, it was a great commercial.

Great Advertisements From The Past - Keep America Beautful "The Crying Indian"

Over the next several weeks, as a consumer and admirer of great advertising I am going to share what I think have been some of the greatest advertising campaigns of all time. My first and favorite of all time: KEEP AMERICA BEAUTIFUL - CRYING INDIAN.

One of the most seen ads in TV history reminds us to watch what we drop. Cherokee Indian Iron Eyes Cody and his single tear tugged on our collective guilt of deposing a people and then despoiling their land. Created by Young & Rubicam's Marstellar Inc. in 1970, the TV spot ran at the expense of individual stations and became the most viewed public service advertising ever.
Since it's release he reached some 24 billion households, more than any other commercial in history. Research showed that during the 1970's when it aired, 94 percent of all viewers recognized Cody as the Crying Indian from the Keep America Beautiful ad campaign. The commercial received more than $700 million in donated network airtime.

"Crying Indian" ran for 10 plus years, and Cody served as a spokesman for Keep America Beautiful for decades after that. Sadly, Iron Eyes Cody died in 1999 - Thank you Cody for that one tear and creating one of the most powerful and great advertising campaigns I have ever seen.

Ron Paul Blimp Advertising Campaign - what the...

I got a kick out of this and just had to share it, below is a quote from the official blimp website, apperently the blimp is returning home, they didn't get it off the ground:

"The Ron Paul Blimp and Liberty Political Advertising are not affiliated with the official Ron Paul Campaign in anyway. Thanks so much to everyone who made this project a huge success. Current Blimp status: The blimp is headed back home to it's hangar in Elizabeth City, NC.
The blimp did not receive enough sponsorships to keep it afloat any longer. We will be keeping the banners in hopes of flying the blimp for "round 2" in a few months. If you would like to sponsor the blimp we would still appreciate it as we still have a balance due to Airship Management Services. "

source: - The legality of this high flying venture seems dubious at best. First of all, Ron Paul's zealous supporters have set up a for-profit corporation called Liberty Political Advertising LLC to raise money for the blimp in an effort to skirt campaign contribution laws. Individuals are limited by law to giving $2,300 to a presidential campaign, but is encouraging people to donate anywhere from $10 to $1 million in support of the blimp advertising campaign.

Super Bowl 2008 Commercial Budweiser Horse Training Dalmation

It takes a menagerie to create a Super Bowl ad slate. Dancing lizards, shrieking squirrels, enormous pigeons and those familiar Clydesdales dominated the commercials in a year when the ads couldn't compete with the last-minute excitement of the game itself. This was my pick for the feel good ad of the Super Bowl Ad's this year.

Sweet-natured spots got some of the highest marks from both ad professionals and regular viewers. Budweiser's latest entry into the Clydesdale canon hit the top of USA Today's Ad Meter poll of consumers and who could resist the story of a rejected horse that trains for and makes the team with the help of a Dalmatian trainer and the Rocky theme?

Pepsi Stuff Super Bowl Ad featuring Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg

I still prefer Coke over Pepsi but the Pepsi ads are fantastic. Andy Samberg should be the start of this commercial not Justin Timberlake.
