Novell's stealth marketing? Have a french fry

Thinking of John Dragoon's foray into this forum got me thinking about what
a lot of people consider Novell's stealth marketing. Then I saw John's
blog entry here: http://www.novell.com/company/blogs/cmo/?m=20080304

Have a french-fry.

Kgroneman,

...and despite some folks' doom and gloom predictions, Novell employees
are not being taught to say "would you like fries with that?" 🙂

Country music. COUNTRY MUSIC?!

We're all in trouble.

Trouble is Country Music's middle name!!

By the county line the cops were nippin' on our heels
Pulled off the road and kicked it in four-wheel
Shut off the lights and tore through the corn field
What was I thinkin'?

Out the other side she was hollerin' faster
Took a dirt road and had the radio blastin'
Hit the honky tonk for a little close dancin'
What was I thinkin'?

Oh, I knew there'd be [heck] to pay
But that crossed my mind a little too late...
'cause I was...

Thinkin' 'bout a little white tank top sittin' right
There in the middle by me
I was thinkin' 'bout a long kiss man just gotta get
Goin' where a night might lead
I know what I was feelin'
But what was I thinkin'
.... what was I thinkin'

No, but it's a good skill to have ready in case you need it in today's
economy.

This has been an issue for quite some time and I have to agree the marketing is lacking

" The way to make your company, product, or service more compelling is
to simplify what you stand for and to make it relevant, credible,
distinctive, unique and “tasty”. "

Bingo!
