And so we begin the Spam weekend with a Spam ... clone!

Good afternoon, everyone. Beyond the fact that this ad resembles what six year-old Me discovered when opening the cupboard under the sink and knowing absolutely what Mom's meal plan was for weeks, the ad shows indirectly Hormel Spam's popularity by introducing an Armour clone, Treet. I remember Treet as being smoother, more like paté, without the enticing blobs of fat and gristle. Yum.

Where's Herb?

I have no recollection of this ad campaign, but I did come upon this interesting article today about it- http://mentalfloss.com/article/89371/bad-beef-remembering-burger-kings-infamous-wheres-herb-campaign

Also, on a Personal note, I would like to add that I have never eaten a whopper. I like(d) their cheeseburgers well enough though.

I saw this searching for print ads, and all I could think of was that Star Trek Episode with the Space Hippies.... I AM NOT HERBERT.Collapse )
