Marketing Genius.

Written by sally @ 9:04 am — Section: sally

Is there a contest where if you catch Russell Brand in a butterfly net at a Best Buy, you get a prize? Or did I have the most fantastic dream of all time this morning?

Dream sources:
1. Burger King “Where’s Herb?” campaign
2. Too many repeat viewings of Forgetting Sarah Marshall
3. Any number of Looney Toons cartoons involving people getting caught in butterfly nets

    I’m actually sort of surprised to discover via your wikipedia link that the “Where’s Herb?” campaign was considered a flop. I assumed that because I, too, remember it vividly, it must have been a big hit. I do have a very specific recollection of reading a list of guidelines that Burger King printed up about how to approach Herb if you did indeed see him. They were concerned that everyone remain very calm.

    I didn’t read the full Wikipedia entry until just now. It only ran for three months?!
