Snicker, snicker…


Am I the only one who’s noticed something peculiar (and a little scandaliscious) about Snickers’ new marketing blitz in and around Boston’s neighborhoods? It started out with made-up words like “substantialiscious,” “nougatocity,” “satisfectellent,” and “peanutopolis,” but recently I came across the clearly ill-conceived “hungerectomy.”

It’s clear what they meant, i.e. “ectomy” being the suffix used in medical terminology to refer to “the removal of,” in this case, hunger. But if you take a closer look you might begin to think that maybe they’ve got a horny gay man in their marketing department.

Hung, erect, O my! My O my O my O my. Put that in your mouth. Snickers satisfies? I bet it does!

That is indeed a powerful word. It's got everything inside it. I guess you may consider it poetical too for all associations it triggers. The guy may be horny as horny as can be, but he definitely knows his way around words... Quite a piece, I'd say. :-)

O geez. You'd think by now all companies would have a bit of software to pick all these hidden problems out.

Too funny!

Reminds me of the (I think it was) Toyota ads on TV a few years back. Their slogan was "GO FARTHER". In the ads, the letters would appear on the screen, one at a time in very rapid fashion, but if you had a VCR and you were really, really bored - you could stop it precisely at "GO FART".

It's not just the Boston area, I've seen these things here in Western MA and in the Hartford CT (our neighbors) area. Interesting.
