Happy Sandwich Campaign Has Lame E-mails Eick November 20, 2007 Marketing 3 Comments As regular readers of this blog know, I have an amusing, ongoing, intriguing and frustrating obsession with the new Kraft “Happy Sandwich” campaign, particularly in regards to the MySpace portion of their campaign. I thought for SURE I was done posting about it, but after getting this message in my MySpace inbox, I couldn’t resist. Egads. In case you missed that, Kraft’s opening quip is: “We have received more Happy Sandwich videos than your local video store!” Ummmm……huh??? Kraft, can you tell me why exactly my local video store would be receiving ANY Happy Sandwich videos? Aren’t you basically just saying that you received more than zero videos? Since ya know, that’s as many as a local video store would receive? This has to be one of the worst opening line jokes to an e-mail ever. Talk about lame, this is uber-lame. So yeah, it’s a bad joke. But to make things even worse it DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE! Like I said, I didn’t WANT to post about Kraft again, but I just couldn’t resist, it was too easy. I hope, for the sake of my readers (who are probably burnt out on this story) that Kraft keeps a low profile the next few days. Seriously guys, no press releases talking about how nothing improves leftover turkey like melting some Kraft singles on it….because if I ever see that press release, I might have an aneurysm. Your move Kraft. The following two tabs change content below.BioLatest Posts Eick Latest posts by Eick (see all) Live in DC?
