Who did the Marketing here??

You know? Sometimes I really wonder. I must say that these masques are really good, but What the ....?!!! Who the heck decided on this picture?!


Am I going to end up with two apricot halves on my face? Do I have to buy them extra? Fresh, or canned?? Will I look like this for ever? What will happen to me? Will ivy leaves (they look like it) grow on my face after use? Questons, questions...

I don't know about you, but I'm not sure I wanna use this!

Some ads are made so badly that you just can't forget them. (Marketing goal achieved?) Nevertheless, if my wife would buy such a masque, I could not resist to make a few comments about paradise birds, aliens, monsters,...

BB: It does sound familiar (goals achieved). "K" has influenced you too much, me thinks! ;-)

big bear said...

I don't know anybody who reacts more allergic regarding setting and achieving business goals than me...
No, I don't think I'm influenced by "K" to much.

What might the girl have thought, when she posed for that stupid photo? Maybe: "They could have taken any ugly face for this one, 'cause you don't see me anyway." Or even: "Man, I'm so happy that none of my friends can recognize me!"

Well, you don't need it anyway, because you are a natural beauty!

Hmmmm... EYEcatching!

It is a weird ass photo for a facial product. I am sure they were trying to say it was all natural or something like that, but still.

Orange-X said...

Mr.Fab, you forgot to mention she's glamorous too! ;-)

CanadianSwiss said...

Big B: Ahh, yes. The incognito model. Haha.

Fab: Awww. That's sweet. Thanks :)

Ex-Sham: Indeed!

Shelli: I does say:"Against animal testing" and "vegetarian standard" in small print on the back.

OX: He doesn't want it to go to my head, I think ;)

Ok - I hear mr twist sawing logs as loud as a vaccum cleaner. A dogs life!

Ginnie said...

See how much fun you're having, CS, with your new-found freedom! :)

CanadianSwiss said...

Actually, ET, only the pict is scary. The product itself is pretty good.

Ginnie: Fun is a KEY word! ;-)

Thos are some pretty crazy eyes! I saw a chocolate mask at our drugstore the other day - this model has chocolate smeared all over her face and the package says "Schmeckt lecker!" like you're supposed to lick it off and eat it afterwards. Eew.

CanadianSwiss said...

Christina- I think I'll stick to chocolate in form of bars or pralines... Oh, and cake ;-)
