Would you handle a PR crisis as well as KFC did? »

So, KFC, formerly Kentucky Fried Chicken, sells chicken. But you can’t fry what you don’t have. Sounds far fetched, I know, but KFC ran out of chicken. Customers? Not happy. What’s a Colonel to do? So, they took their initials, KFC, rearranged the order and put out this provocative ad. Along with an apology. Did […]

Should you ever MOCK yourself the way Sean Spicer did at the Emmys last night? »

Check it out above. Did you see it live? Celebs appeared more shocked than over 40 years ago when a streaker ran naked across the stage at the Academy Awards. Jaw-dropping!!! Spicer came out with a podium and hilariously mimicked his Crowd Size rant that caused all the controversy after the Jan 20th inauguration. On […]

Is admitting DEFEAT a good MARKETING strategy? »

Sure looks that way. In this TV commercial, the setting is a fall fair competition where Classico pasta sauce LOSES to the homemade sauce of these Italian grandmas and the Classico chefs are smiling anyway–all the way to the bank. It’s a variation of the Avis, #2, We Try Harder campaign from years ago that’s […]

Was Hillary’s Teleprompter “SIGH” Deliberate or Dumb? »

It’s all over the Internet. Hillary reads the stage directions right off the teleprompter. HUGE contrast with her opponent, the spontaneous I-say-whatever-pop-into-my-head Trump who was all over this tweeting his delight. So, here’s the question.
