Honest Slogans

Companies spend millions on carefully-crafting their logos and slogans in the hope they will bring customers flocking.
But, as part of a new online craze, their efforts are being mocked by people telling huge firms what they really think of their products and services.

I just love Tesco's home delivery slogan. "You shop. We Drop"
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

I caught a Toyota (I think it was) advert using the slogan 'Go fun yourself!'

Out of interest (pun intended) does anyone know what the Abbey Habit actually involved Undecided
Perhaps more companies would do well to remember the old British Caledonian Airline slogan - "We never forget you have a choice" Roll eyes

Re: Honest Slogans

There's the story of a food company in the US many years ago which found itself with a job-lot of tinned white tuna fish that no-one wanted to buy (in the public consciousness, tuna is pink and the white stuff looked unhealthy).
The execs pondered how they could possibly shift it, when the underling who was making them coffee suddenly said, "If you give me $5000, I can tell you exactly how you can sell that stuff".
"OK", said the desperate CEO, "You're on. Here's a cheque for $5000. Now what's the answer?"
The coffee-maker wrote nine words on a piece of paper, handed it to the sales manager and said, "Put that slogan on every can, and they'll fly off the shelves!"
On the paper he had written:
"The tuna that doesn't turn pink in the can!"
