I was in Walmart the other day when out of the corner of my eye, in the pet section, I saw it.  I was rather shocked that the band who sang tunes like "Big B@lls" and "The Jack" had their name on a shirt...for dogs.  Yep...they had AC/DC shirts for small pocketbook dogs. 

I felt a bit disgusted so I decided to start this thread.  Can you think of marketing, either for a musical act and/or movie, that simply should have never been put on sale.  Think toys, clothing, hell the sky's the limit.  Don't be afraid to admit you own or have owned some of this sh*t too.   BounceGiggle  Post all the pictures and examples here you want.  KISS alone we could fill 20 pages on...

I got a figure around here of Latrell Spreewell that was made back when he choked his coach. The best part about it is the fact it says Warning : Chocking Hazard on the package. I also have a Happy Fun Ball which I found at a dollar store. Apparently it was a Chinese import and the maker was unaware of the SNL skit.
When I seen the tread title, I first thought about the only time I ever did acid. I spent a good part of the night talking to Satan on how to run Hell more efficiently and how his biggest problem was bad marketing.

When I went to college I had a number of friends in the Communications school. I remember one time a friend showed me her homework for Advertising class: come up with a campaign for either the Mafia, Death or Hell. My homework in physics was never that interesting.

My friend went for the Mafia: "You'll always have Family around".

As for bad marketing, I'm in NYC a lot these days. There's always a lot of marketing for movies and TV shows in the subway stations. Last week, one entire wall of a block-long subway tunnel was plastered with posters for some show called "Big Love". It said "everybody's got a something to hide" and actually had a headphone jack on every person on every poster, inviting you to plug in and listen to their secret thoughts.

I thought that was a pretty stupid waste of money as people in NYC, especially in subway tunnels, are always in a hurry. Nobody's going to stop and plug into a poster.

I find life insurance commercials strange: Basically, you're betting that you die before you spend more money in premiums than they are going to give you for dying, BUT, it's not YOU that gets the money, it's your immediate family, you know, the people responsible for over a third of the murders in the U.S. So you spend your own money on a policy that is one more reason for your family to kill you.

Erasers for movies make no sense to me.  I kind of sucks watching your light saber slowing dwindling down to nothing.  I remember having a C3PO one.

First one to figure this one out gets a free single double, er, two single doubles for the price of one, er a '2 for' double for a single (if you buy two). . . ah, forget it.

Well, he's cool enough to raise decent kids and not blithering idiots like Ozzy did.

He's always been the antichrist of merchandising but at least he had mind enough to do so.  Ozzy didn't until he met Sharon.
