Qualified Condition

Naughty or Nice?

I was just thinking that it would be really cool if a major corporation would re-brand a cherished and time honored fictional icon into something really slick and douchebaggerific.  Maybe Lexus could use Snoopy to sell some hybrid SUVs but make him a little more anthropomorphic… get him some rhinoplasty.  Or maybe a sexed up Mrs. Buttersworth could throw on a bikini and start hocking Special K.  Better yet, let’s get Santa Claus on ephedrin, deck him out in Fred Siegel and make him look like a long-lost and coked up Wilson brother.  He’ll sell cell phones, it’ll be perfect.  Oh, wait.  Sprint already thought of that one…

Thanks, Sprint, for reminding us that Christmas has more to do with marketing and sales and less to do with tradition and celebration.  Just please keep the Baby Jesus away from the folks at Toys R Us.

  4. Hey, I think you probably meant “hawking” (selling) instead of “hocking” (pawning or coughing up), but the image of Mrs. Butterworth gagging and then spitting out cereal flakes is tops.
