The power of fake commercials

SMS Text

Commercials are a great way to brand a company or a product. But what’s even more effective is when others start creating their own fake commercials to make fun of your product. We have seen this with [Apple’s iPod](http://www.pronetadvertising.com/articles/ipod-bloopers.html) and now we are already seeing this with Apple’s iPhone, which isn’t even released yet.

    What’s even more effective than that is when companies fake their own commercials themselves, or parodying them. I’m seeing confectionery products here in the UK where the companies are bastardising their own products. I used to specialise in this sh!t when I was designing t-shirts for http://www.shitstir.com (it was fun and lucrative, might take it up again)
    p.s. don’t worry about pimping Holiday Pad, I’m in the process of doing it myself 😉

    That was a good one.
    What’s funny is all of these gadgets are prophylactics whenever you ignore your significant other for them :)
