06 October 2009 Bad Apples Aren’t Fresh
So Apple are going to bring legal action against Woolworths over the similarities in their logos.
I know this blog has turned into a bit of a personal rant lately about the complete damn stupidity in the marketing world but I just couldn’t pass on this. It’s almost as bad as the case study I read today about an ad where a woman cuffed a guy on the back of the head for staring at another girl. It received complaints about violence against men.
I don’t even know what the main point of this post is. Perhaps it’s that both marketers and consumers can be complete tossers (and please don’t let me turn into one of them). Or maybe it’s that I expected better from a brand like Apple. Most likely it’s just that I wanted to share the picture above.
