Marketing Madness sometimes happens when an agency has a copy concept or a visual idea but they just don’t have both at the same time.

What to  do?

The World Is A Globe Of CBD

You just mash ’em together and h0pe for the best!

What the hell?! The person reading this is a fucking wreck, needs something to calm down and isn’t gonna care whether the visuals match the copy or vice versa.

Actual Dialogue From Catalogue Photo Shoot

This was actual dialogue recorded from the photoshoot for the 2011 Spring/Summer Uline catalogue photoshoot:

This is a model beaver

Fred: “Find somethin’ heavy to put in front of the  wood crates. This is goin’ on the cover.”

Phil: “Huh?  Ahh…throw a cinder block in there!”

Fred: “Cinder block!?  Find something nice!”

Phil: “Nice?!  Who cares!!  Just put anything there!”

Fred: “Hey what about this beaver!!”

Phil: “BEAVER?!”  

Fred: “You said, ‘Anything!!'”
