Happy New Year!! Its time for new beginnings!!
Last semester in my marketing class we were watching a video of a guy ( some market researcher i guess) who was going on in this high pitched annoying tone about how advertising on plastic cups is the most amazing idea ever. All that while i was like what nonsense…who keeps staring at their plastic coffee cup? Unimpressed with the whole idea and annoyed by the enthusiastic tone used while he presented i went on with life. My opinion remained the same until a few days ago…
I picked up a oreo milkshake( :P) from TGI Fridays on my way back home… and the key point here is the takeout is in a plastic cup. The plastic cup i held in my hand during my 45 minute commute. *Sigh*
I began to get bored of holding the cup. To then getting fascinated by it…I read what was written on it.. I read it again… and again and again!
Was i proven wrong or not! *sigh* It then just struck how much a plastic cup can be used in advertising giving out almost the same results as a billboard or a flyer or a logo would do. I mean I kinda identify with a Starbucks or TGIF plastic cups alot now!!!
Aint that interesting!?
I didn’t know that!
Back to blogging! So await lots of them posts!!
