Curating, skewering and roasting the worst of advertising to comic perfection
Extra Copy Means Extra Madness
That “Expect The Stretch” is what I call “Stretch copy” (yeah I just made that up)
Creative Director doesn’t like the blank space and wants something else there, even if it adds no value or make any sense whatsoever. And the poor copywriter has to come up with some word play, some double entendre … ANYthing to fill that space.
And, Children, that is how Expect The Stretch wound up on the box for the Super Stretch Spider Web Halloween Packaging. Good night! Drive safely!
