Slogans I Don’t Like

October 1st, 2012 by Bob Bly

Slogans I don’t like:

1–Farmer’s insurance: “Bah-be-bum-bum-BUM-bum-bum.” Just stupid and not even catchy.

2–Dos Equis for its Most Interesting Man in the World campaign: “Stay thirsty, my friends.”

Yes, I know they want us to stay thirsty for Dos Equis beer.

But to literally stay thirsty, you would have to AVOID drinking their beer or any other.

    Farmer’s Insurance is definitely stupid slogan.

    Bob — Dumb slogans sometimes are effective. According to Wikipedia: “Sales of Dos Equis are said to have increased by 22% at a time when sale of other imported beer fell 4% in the U.S.” I find the Most Interesting Man in the World commercials to be very amusing. Isn’t that true with almost every beer commercial?

    Kelja: I too find the Most Interesting Man in the World to be entertaining, and you can’t argue with results. But I still dislike the slogan.

    Thomas: It’s not a slogan.

    Hi Bob,

    I disagree with your Dos Equis slogan assessment. Beer is a diuretic. The more beer you drink, the more dehydrated you become–technically. However, if you drink enough alcohol, you may not realize you’re thirsty!

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
