According to The New York Times, diving into the pool of idiotic online ideas this week is Coors Light. They are launching a "Code Blue" social media application on Facebook.
“We talk a lot internally about ‘360-ing’ our innovations,” said Andy England, chief marketing officer at Coors Brewing...Wow. 360-ing the innovations!
And what exactly is this innovation? It's the label that turns blue when it's cold because you really have to be a fucking genius to figure out when a bottle of beer is cold.
Who said America lacks innovative ideas?
“Imagine being able to ‘Code blue’ someone on your iPhone,” (Tim Sproul, group creative director... of Avenue A/Razorfish) added, “and say, ‘I just got laid off; you better go buy me a Coors Light at the local bar.’ ”Wow. On my iPhone! How fucking cool would that be!
Excuse me for a minute. I'm 86-ing my lunch.
Sure To Fail Update:
- This post appeared about a year ago. As of now, the Code Blue Facebook app has 212 active monthly users. Code Blue indeed.
- Is the Great Facebook Apps Scare over yet, or are there still companies pissing away money on this nonsense?
