Isle Of Man Where You Can......

Recommended Posts

Turns out it's not such a new slogan after all.

 

Enter exhibit A, a Money Media article from 2005.

 

I guess recycling is en vogue right now smile.png

And did that 'dynamic campaign' appeal to the key decision makers? Or did they see it as the same old stuff?

 

Has anybody every done anything because they were enticed by a bland slogan?

 

Oh 'Just do it' I suppose.

In fairness, they also added the word "where". If your client has the memory of a goldfish, I guess you can get away with this. :)

I really do think they should have just asked ask some of the regular posters on here. They could have run a competition with a modest prize. ( I would have been happy for a fraction of what they paid the PR firm for their banal offering.)

One of my personal favourites among the myriad slogans and buzz phrases we have used over the years is the Dept of Tourism's superb "You'll Look Forward To Going Back". OK at a push maybe in the brochure but not on a huge hoarding across the road from the entrance to the Sea Terminal. I wonder how many had a week of torrential rain and did indeed "look forward to going back".

 

I can imagine some of these agencies getting the call and saying "It's those tossers from the Isle of Man again with another stash of money to spend". Then they put their heads together and come up with something to claim the money and take the piss out of the Island at the same time.

Using the 'lets just do the same thing again and charge them for it' -I'll just re-arrange the letters for my CONsultants fee.

 

A Ace Fee Whims Loony Run

 

That'll be 50 grand please.

...throw up drunk on a bus and still be boss of all Police.

...be thick as pigshit and still end up with a gold plated pension.

...be totally deluded and still end up with a gold plated pension.

...have a Monopoly on Gas and rape your customers silly.

...have a Monopoly on shipping and rape your customers silly.

...have a Monopoly on electricity and rape your customers silly.

...marvel at the worst highstreet in the British Isles.

...pretend it's still 1970, porn star moustache inclusive.

 

Germany of course is perfect - take it you won't be wanting to come back here.

“The Isle of Man where you can” I don’t know about anyone else but it keeps reminding me of the 1990s car advert. “You Can with a Nissan”? But back then you also had the “Bank that likes to say yes” and British Airways were “The world’s favourite airline”. And does anyone remember the privatisation of British Gas? “If you see Sid, tell him”...

I’ll shut up now in case this is giving anyone ideas that I’m not being paid for.

This isn't about a comparison with Germany.

Come to think of it, i remember those slogans but I cant think of any I have heard in the past few years.

 

Are slogans past their sell by date?

 

Has advertising went more subliminal these days.
