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?
Marketing Madness in Trade Catalogs #17:
Big mistake putting metal on the cover of…CONSOLIDATED PLASTICS
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!!”
Yes, there are men in chef toques with whisks and ladles carefully pouring chocolate over your cookies.
Then why is that image a drawing??
Because the photo wouldn’t quite communicate the same thing.
Marketing Madness means: Do Something Different. Even if different isn’t different…it’s different. Hence: PIPCORN.
Because it’s smaller. Sort of. Because how often are you eating popcorn thinking:
“Damn it! I wish this was smaller so I could shove more of this shit in my mouth!!”
