Read about the Heartland Institute’s brief experiment with provocative marketing.
UPDATE Thursday 10 May
At five to nine this morning I received an email from Nick Downes, who works for Federation Media (“We specialise in doing the web right”) whose web site displays some spectacular work for some spectacular clients.
After taking some advice, I removed the Tui billboard facsimile above. Here’s Federation Media’s polite request:
|Subject: Request to remove Copyright Infringement|

So I complied, but as I deleted the image I couldn’t help but shed a small tear for the brave yet now forsaken history of the Tui brand, with its determined, heart-warming struggle for so long against the big boys of brewing. A struggle that in the end crushed their proud hearts and won the Tui brand for the big boys. – *sniff*
