I don't get it




So I thought I would waist a minute of my time and try and find a picture of my new Puma's..so I went online to Puma..and pulled up this. What advertising genius came up with this b/c frankly, I don't get it.

I think the guy is supposed to look like a monkey and the shoes are supposed to look like bananas? I have to agree, that's terrible marketing...

Oh I don't know it definatly makes you look at it twice or three times to work out what it means but I dont think THAT would convince anyone to buy the shoes!

My guess is they want to give the impression that you got. If you think Puma is a little different from other shoe brands, maybe a little quirky or odd (or daring), it's worked. Their yellow shoe is 'out there', not for everybody. They're telling you that the brand itself is the same.

So I think you are all right. Puma is different. Different interesting or different really strange.

I am a monkey and I think these are my bananas is really really funny.

Henmeg... you are right. I thought about Puma a little too much...and that is what they wanted me to do. Genius indeed. :-)

So maybe I will spoof this add for my launch page for the Fall..that would be funny..have my husband act like a monkey picking out a yellow belt.

B/c indeed I am odd too.
