Let Them Eat Candy

October 31, 2008

I’ve spent some time counting (you know how much I love to count) after Cookie Monster and I conversed about Halloveen and the vonderful viral marketing campaign possibilities and I have some numbers for you to ponder, ah ah ah.

Instead of spending money on television ads, McCain might have better spent it creating some custom M&M’s to hand out to children on Halloveen. The Mars Candy Company has a vonderful vebsite vhere you can create candies with custom messages.

Let us start by counting the money McCain spent this past week in Florida on television advertisements. Let’s see, one, 100 thousand. Two, 200 thousand. Two hundred twenty-eight, 228 thousand dollars, ah ah ah. Now ve take this number and count the packages of specially created M&M’s that could be purchased at $1.79 each. Five, five thousand. Thirty-five, 35,000. One hundred thirty-five, 135,000, McCain can buy 135,000 units, ah ah ah. These could then be dispersed amongst households to give out during the vitching hours of Halloween night.

Compared to the measly 416 units of ad time McCain bought vith that 228k I think the M&M’s would be much more effective, creative, and tasty vay to penetrate a target audience who is no longer paying attention to political ads.

Subliminal Candy

October 31, 2008

Cookies!!! The last thing this election has left is Halloween…..And what does every body do for Halloween? Little kids go out and get candy, they come home, eat a bit of it and the parents take the rest of it away so the kids won’t get sick!! Me do anything for cookie!

An idea given to me just by watching James Kotecki, the candy is a wonderful way to get to children…. Subliminal messaging!!!! Just for Halloween on election years!! Everyone knows you can specialize M&Ms and put whatever you want on them and you can buy as much as you want….Me sure if either candidate decides to want to do some last minute campaigning, candy….cookies!!!!!….are the way to go!!!!

Me sure with enough money, a candidate could buy enough candy and buy lots of candy companies to make candy wrappers with them on it and put some kind of message on all the candy and chocolate and cookies to give subliminal messages to the kids….

Then the parents take the candy away and see the wrappers, and though they don’t think anything of it….. The kids will take out the candy often enough, and for the littlest kids, the parents will have to clean up after them and will see the wrappers some more…..Then the subliminal messaging will get to the parents….

Interesting idea, no? C is for Cookie and that’s good enough for me!!!
