He’s back

We are living in the age of the TV spokesperson.

Flo for Progressive. That perky AT&T gal at the mall.  The mayhem guy for Allstate. And they all owe their careers and pricey exclusive contracts to this guy:

He made Verizon’s slogan ‘Can you hear me now?’ ubiquitous and annoying.

Then he disappeared.

Well…

He’s back.

I guess his no-compete clause finally expired.

Branded

You can tell some folk’s politics by the signs in their yard.  But the logo on their coffee cup?

Wake up.  It’s true.

A report by Buyology, Inc., a New York City firm that measures the unconscious
decision making that drives brand preference, links consumers’ politics to the brands they buy.

For example, Democrats are more likely to buy Starbucks coffee.  Republicans prefer Dunkin Donuts’ brew.

No beans about it.

Partisanship also rears its ugly head in folks’ choice of car, insurance, sport and gaming system.  Democrats prefer Jeep, Progressive, NFL and Wii; Republicans go for BMW, Allstate, Major League Baseball and XBOX.

But both parties agree on Coke, Google, VISA, Apple and Olay.

Wha?  The Democrats and Republicans agree on five whole things? This is either a sign of a huge turnaround…

Or the end of the world.
