The Wall Street Journal has an interesting post on its website featuring six classic ads from General Motors from 1956 to 2010.

As a baseball fan, I prefer image number 3, but I will admit that for some people this particular ad may not have worked out too well. While I enjoy visuals, that one is just too many images. Add that to the fact that one had to understand the saying about “baseball, a hot dog and apple pie”.

Anyway, take a look and let us know your thoughts.


Product Ads And Consumer Reactions

This tweet caught my attention:


It strikes me as funny how sometimes products can have really great advertising, for a product that doesn’t appeal to everyone. In this case, a person who does not like Corona took the time to tweet about their great ads, but also took the time to mention his dislike for the product. Hey, you can’t please one-hundred percent of the people one-hundred percent of the time. Corona may not, and likely won’t, get a new customer here based on this ad, but this tweet is not a total negative.

In this case, at least the person knows what the ad is for. How many times have you seen a great or hilarious ad, but you had no idea who was responsible for it? The worst time for that to happen is with Super Bowl ads, but that’s another post for another day.
