Brands Are Not Your Friends

Brands Are Not Your Friends #eklectic

When was the last time Coca-Cola did anything nice for you?

People tend to talk to brands on the internet like they might have lost their virginity to them. They very well may have—an empty bag of @Doritos under the mattress or in the parking lot of a @McDonalds—but it’s a one-way relationship. Your sister’s face has never appeared on a highway billboard, but Nestlé and Burger King show up in the same streams as your loved ones.

This is the business model of the social web.

A murderer's last words inspired Nike's "Just do it"

Dan Wieden, co-founder of the advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy,the agency behind Nike's "Just do it" slogan says that the world's most recognisable taglines was based on the words of a murderer facing a firing squad. Gary Gilmore had robbed and murdered two men in Utah and was executed by firing squad the following year. Gilmore, who had grown up in Portland, Oregan – the city that is home to both Nike and Wieden+Kennedy, was supposed to have uttered 'Let's do it' as his last words (though some say he actually said "Let's do this"). Dan Wieden, didn't think 'Let's do it' was quite it - so he changed it "Just do it". And the rest, like they say, is history!
