Rejection Hotline

woman on phone

I thought it was really mean when I found out about The Rejection Hotline (Click here for your local number), but now I know why it exists.

So here’s how the story goes. A guy approached a girl at the bar, she gave him her business card and he left these:

Horrible VoiceMail

Too funny! talk about being full of himself. He’s the perfect example of the kind of guy that deserves to be given the Rejection Hotline number.

Expense-a-Steak

Fraud-o-matic

Expenseasteak.com is a genius micro site for Maloney & Porcelli’s a NYC steakhouse that has found an interesting way to get you to eat there: make the company pay for it.

This stunt from NYC agency Walrus goes beyond digital marketing in a page that’s both clever and charming. You simply have to enter the total of your Maloney & Porcelli’s bill and it will give you a pdf with a series of realistic looking receipts that add up to the exact amount you spent.

What better way to break through the mold then to have a humorous approach to the recession.

It’s advertising at it’s best, but I wonder if anyone has dared to use the fake receipts, especially with the amount of buzz the web page has gotten.

Buddah Pears

pearbabieseur_450x520

I’ve seen a lot of webpages report on the Baby Shaped Pears that are being grown by a Chinese farmer. He’s been trying to figure them out in 2003 and he reportedly grew 10,000 pears this year. In my opinion, they look more like Buddah than a baby, but no matter what they look like they’re not worth the $5 pounds he’s selling them for. He makes them but putting a plastic mold around them at what he’s emasured to be the perfect time and taking them out of the mold before the ripen.

I find them very creepy, and wouldn’t consider eating one.

Click here for more examples of unnaturally shaped fruits and vegetables.

From a marketing point of view it would be interesting to see if brands would dear to dwell into this. I won’t be surprised if we soon see Mickey shaped apples in Disney World or Logos on certain vegetables.

Coco Chanel is Rolling in her Grave

Picture 6

Perez has made his life criticising others. He’s made a ton of money over making people feel inadequate at what they do (or attempt to do). I won’t pretend I hate him, I was obsessed with his web page not so long ago, but I’m over his new self-promotion antics.  He loves dissing actresses that go into singing and singers that go into acting. He’s tried writing a book (didn’t sell as much as planned), and designing a fashion line (horrible), but his success has been through his gossip blog. If he recognizes that to each his own why is he going into fashion blogging? His new web page Coco Perez, which Perez refers to as “the ultimate destination for where celebrity meets fashion,” is an unnecessary attempt to dive into one of the areas he knows the least about. He knows nothing about fashion (see his own clothes and styling) and I think it’s ridiculous in venturing into this area. I doubt he’ll be feautring anything beside b, c and z list actors and actresses that don’t know how to dress. I wonder if we’ll be seeing any real fashionistas or stylish people there? And no, his obsession  Lady Gaga, doesn’t count as stylish.

The weirdest thing is his reference to Coco Chanel in his blog title page when I’m sure that if she were alive she’d want nothing to do with him.

Another interesting observation is Gap’s sponsorhsip of this page. It tells how desperate they are to jump into the “hip” and “fashionable” band wagon. I don’t think Perez is the best way to do so. The Sartorialist and other blogs of the like show people in classic, not trend, pieces that look great and might identify more with the Gap brand. Yes, Perez reaches a mass market, but it’s a mass market obsessed with Britney’s comeback, Katie Price and Lilly Allen’s stupid moves. I don’t think this is something that Gap, known for its classic looks, wants to be associated with. Their collaborations with designers was a much better way to get attention.

Though Perez is a media genius and I have to give him props for being able to get virtually unknown singers into everyone’s head and for adding charities into his blog posts, I think he should’ve learned from his past mistakes of venturing outsie his forte, and leave fashion blogging to those who know about it.

Some of my favorite fashion blogs:

  • The Sartorialist - for stlyish street fashion from NY to Milan
  • Easy Fashion – for street styles from Paris
  • The Cut – Ny Magazines fashion blog. Great for info on Brands and
  • Go Fug Yourself – for my dose of celebrity bashing with wit and amazing pop references
  • Sea of Shoes - a sort of edgy fashion diary. so famous she got her own shoe collaboration with uo.
  • Cherry Blossom Girl – a great mix between fashion and photography.
  • Jak and Jil Blog-  amazing pictures of shoes and fashionistas.
  • Who What Wear- celebrities and fashionistas with a unique take on trends.

Fashion Disaster

 

Imagine him next to Karl

Imagine him next to Karl

 

 

If this is true, I dare to see it as the beginning of the end of Paris Fashion Week. Though it’s iconic and a legend in it’s own right, this might take it down a few notches on everyone’s list. Christian Audigier, the designer for Ed Hardy, has a clear image in my mind of rappers, fallen rock-stars and euro-trash. His looks are anything but classy and fashion forward so it was a shock for me to read on NY Mag’s The Cut blog that he’ll be showing at the Paris shows for Spring 2010. I can’t imagine seeing his show alongside Karl Lagerfeld’s or others of the like. Though he’s tacky, he’s not stupid. He’s promising a performance from a famous pop star. This is sure to get him press and his show excess attention.

In case you are a Christian Audigier fan, he just launched a range of champagne and wines.

Nigaz

It’s easy to fail in international branding. Markets have different slangs, customs and cultures and it’s hard to take them into account along with the norms for the global market. A failure that’s boundto make the media rounds this week is “Nigaz” – Russian gas giant Gazprom’s new joint venture with Nigerian firm NNPC- which, though a simple joining of the words Nigeria and Gazprom will be causing a lot of controversy. For English speakers it has a different meaning that Gazprom will definitely not be able to overcome. Twitters were definitely on it like wildfire (seems to be they’re the olace to go for everything lately). Here are some of the recent tweets regarding this.

RichardYoung: You know those brand consultants we all hate so much? Sometimes worth the money: http://bit.ly/HAKVF (hat tip: http://bit.ly/lFgocb )

MikeyTRRP: Erm, the firm is gonna be called WHAT?! http://bit.ly/HAKVF

RichHL: The Russians like Nigaz with attitude. http://bit.ly/HAKVF

CheEdgarissimus: It’s impossible, but true! Nigeria + Gazprom = Nigaz. http://tinyurl.com/l2lhkl

kollner: Gazprom signed $2.5bn deal with Nigeria’s state forming join venture to be named NIGAZ. Seriously, nigaaaaz :-) http://bit.ly/QHQtn

renepower: http://tinyurl.com/l9n5uu Doh, more ‘Whats in a Name’ fun – Gazpro’s Nigaz Nigerian joint venture

For up to date tweets: https://twitter.com/search?q=%20http%3A//bit.ly/HAKVF#search?q=nigaz

I think a little bit of international research would’ve gone a long way. I’ll assume the rebranding they need to do will cost more time and money than that research would’ve.
