Fit For Pets or People

Am I the only one who is tired of the perpetually perky brand juggernaut of Racel Ray? She’s made an empire out of beenie weenie casseroles and hammie cheesie roll-ups (which I enjoy, but do not need to see made on TV, offered as meaningful cuisine). But now she has her own line of dog food. Sheesh. Dogs do not respond to marketing, people do. And Rachel’s smile is a little too shiny white. Some would say that she has always served up pet food…

Latex Pimp

I know that we live in a consumer based society. And I know that condoms are valuable product in the prevention of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. But I think that I am a little uncomfortable with Hannah Montana being the paid spokesperson for LifeStyles condoms. But here’s the deal… the 15 year old who has pledged not to have sex until she is married hasn’t received an offer from LifeStyles. Yep, they’ve offered her $1,000,000 to be the shill, just not officially. Miley Cyrus’ (her real name) rep has stated that the offer was never received, nor would it be considered. Is this the new trend in consumer marketing? Create a story where none exists… oh wait, happens every day.
