The Pig Kisses It Better

When you work on a retail account, you have to drive traffic, especially around high volume holidays. Price promotions is one way to go, but price-driven appeals can become awfully expected. Speaking of expected, here’s a bunch of lame pickup lines…

Okay, so Piggly Wiggly, a.k.a. “The Pig” injects a little surprise and some sophomoric humor–something common to beer commercials, but for frozen turkeys, not so much. My only question is, does this appeal to moms? Because that’s who buys 10 lb. turkeys.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
