Who missed the Dog Dew connection when they approved this???
MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH!!
Once again I have to wonder….WHO approved this? Seriously. Do you really want people ordering a Dog Dew combo? Mountain Dew has had a lot of clever and fun ads…but this one should have been tossed where dog do usually goes – on the trash pile.
Again, I get that any publicity can end up being positive. But just how negative can an association be between things before subconsciously people start avoiding that product.
A lot of obvious nicknames and similar slogans come to mind: ‘Poop a Dew’, “Dew Doody’, among others. And don’t even get me started on the sexual references that this combo brings to mind.
Here’s an idea. If you want to stick to this line of advertising and marketing – here’s your next slogan: “Dogs do Dew too! Do you?”
So Mountain Dew, for the most unpalatable ad in a long time, the Missed It By That Much award is yours.
