Failed Slogans


Failed product slogans you might not remember hearing or seeing.


Isotoners - "If they are good enough for O.J., they are good enough for you"

Firestone - "Causing SUVs to roll over is in the past"

Tyson - "We choke our chickens before you eat them"

Apple - "It doesn't matter what we make because you are still going to buy it"

Jif - "May contain peanuts"

Oscar Mayer - "Do you really want to know what's in our hot dogs?"

Samsung - "Not your grandmother's television"

Ford - "We have reliable cars, we promise"

Fisher Price - "Lead paint free since 2004"

Head & Shoulders - "Your disgusting scalp is our #1 concern"

Crest - "Also removes zits"

I think Apple is still using that slogan...

Ben & Jerrys - Fair trade equals expensive.

Baby Sister said...

Lol. I agree with Alex. They still use it, and people give in to it. So wrong.

SShhh! My husband was clueless about the isotoners.

Head and shoulders could get away with that slogan

Mark said...

If you took the word "disgusting" out of the Head and Shoulders one you could probably run it.

Do you want to call shenanigans before or after I put crest on my teenage son's face?

Hey!
The apple slogan may be a bad one, but I think it's true. It's like a cult those apple users...

Ms. A said...

Personally, I love my Mac!

Chuck said...

I don't see any of those really putting me off...I am kind of a curiosity nut that way.

Hehehe nice slogans.

Totally can't see why they can't be run. ;-)

Love them! have you heard the true Juicy Fruit ads where 3 men are in a life raft and sing about juicy fruit-"Pop it in your mouth" The whole thing is just a little suggestive- It's true about Apple. People still will eat hot dogs no matter what
