I’m thinking the generic Box of Rags people consider this a major coup. Scott® with all their supposed marketing might gets bumped down the page, “Rags in a Box” product overshadowed by the sheer mass of Boxes of Rags
I can just hear the Box of Rags sales guy exclaiming to his boss:
Fred! Are ya sitting down!? Just got off the phone with the catalog people. We got a full spread, top third of the page. Above Scott!! BOOYAH!!!
Hulk not transform from cold pressed juice! Hulk transform from gamma radiation and other strange chemical process.
Juice only good for normal human!
Hulk not endorse juice from cart on city street!
Hulk and Marvel Comics Lawyers sue for rights to use image!
Marketing Madness in Trade Catalogs #17:
Big mistake putting metal on the cover of…CONSOLIDATED PLASTICS
Sometimes you just wonder why they bother to write these things on a package. The cheapest food in the world doesn’t need sexy. But it wold look empty with just the oh-so-generic brand Pasta USA and the photo. So the designer just had to say something. That explains it.
The Earth doesn’t need a tune-up. The Earth doesn’t NEED anything…it is a PLANET! Earth is not even insulted by this.
It doesn’t even care that I’m defending it against this crappy concept.
I bought it because of the package. I knew it wasn’t fresh fruit. I didn’t mind that it would be dried.
But how to contain my disappointment when I open and see this?
I guess it’s better than saying:
FOOD SHOULD NOT KILL YOU
Would a manly man really take vitamin gummies?
How much time do you think they debated what that color should be for this product?
I love how the random stuff at 7-Eleven that’s not snacks connotes a weird sorta party:
“Guess what we’re doin’ tonight?!? We’ll play cards, roll dice, sing happy birthday, mess with a flashlight and use bug spray!! Happy Birthday!!”
