    KFC Hot & Spicy Photoshop Campaign

    There’s something about the idea of fried chicken visually resembling explosive combustion that isn’t exactly appetizing to me, personally. But far be it for me to second-guess the latest ad campaign from KFC and advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather Hong Kong, especially since this KFC Hot & Spicy Photoshop campaign is probably one of the least bizarre […]

  • Coca-Cola Frozen Coming to Japan

    Coca-Cola Frozen Coming to Japan

    Japan continues to stay ahead of the western world in the realm of soft drinks. Today the internet is abuzz about just such a drink, called simply (and probably self-explanatorily) Coca-Cola Frozen. North American readers are no-doubt familiar with the concept of a Frozen Coke.

  • Mayochup: Only You Can Stop Heinz from Releasing This Sauce

    Mayochup: Only You Can Stop Heinz from Releasing This Sauce

    Defenders of mixing up ketchup and mayonnaise have a few standby rhetorical themes on-hand at all times. “It’s just thousand island dressing or fry sauce,” they say.
