Kopparberg introduces security tag to deter pint glass thieves

Kopparberg introduces security tag to deter pint glass thieves

I'd buy one of those and try and nick it just to see what would happen.

Which I suspect might be the real intention behind this great PR stunt.

What does Banksy think of the ad industry? Not a lot apparently

What does Banksy think of the ad industry? Not a lot apparently

I remember seeing this doing the rounds a few months ago. There's a ludicrous irony in a graffiti artist complaining about advertising appearing in public spaces without asking for permission first.

I don't remember Banksy asking for my permission to spray paint his rudimentary stencils of simplistic political metaphors.

His work IS advertising.

Give him the chance to give all his earnings back, take all his graffiti down and go back to displaying it from the bedroom in his parent's house. We'll see if he's quite so anti-advertising then.

Marketing Weak: Asda George and the perils of flogging cheap clothes

Marketing Weak: Asda George and the perils of flogging cheap clothes

It's only weak if you make the assumption that because of the tragic happenings in Bangladesh advertising low priced clothes is now distasteful or taboo. Which clearly it isn't.

I don't imagine for a second that what happened in Bangladesh will have any impact whatsoever on the demand for cheap clothing in the UK.
