    Default Wheeeeeeeeeee! Marketing Ploys!

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070702/...en_kwik_e_mart

    Over the weekend, 7-Eleven Inc. turned a dozen stores into Kwik-E-Marts, the fictional convenience stores of "The Simpsons" fame, in the latest example of marketers making life imitate art.

    Those stores and most of the 6,000-plus other 7-Elevens in North America will sell items that until now existed only on television: Buzz Cola, KrustyO's cereal and Squishees, the slushy drink knockoff of Slurpees.
    I'm not a big fan but even I find this interesting. There's one close too my house though. I went in to look around and the place was packed.

    That's an interesting thing to do. Not only those it promote the store though, there's also the movie coming out.

    I love Steal! <3

    As marketing tactics go, it's more interesting than McDonalds offering drink glasses or toys that are connected to the opening of a new movie.

    Damn thats smart...just like how BUD lite sponsers gay day in orlando just think thousands of homosexuals roaming the streets of the most wonderful place on earth buzzed on cheap beer.

    they make more money in one gay day then they do a week!

    btw it is really called gay day im not makin fun of anyone.

    I've never enjoyed The Simpsons. I will never understand the appeal.

    I do not like it much either, nor do I like Futurama.

    I love Futurama and the Simpsons. Family Guy, not so much.

    Family Guy > Simpsons > Futurama


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Family Guy was the best of the lot before it was revived. Now they all just suck.
