It makes sense to advertise to that demographic. They have to lure kids into their vans somehow.

similar to an icon used to ward off paedophiles. ... The so-called "mascot of paedophilia" has become an internet meme and shorthand for 'Stop being creepy about kids.'


Holy crap, a media site actually got pedobear right, instead of thinking it was a mascot used by actual paedophiles.

So does this mean that Penn State SHOULD adopt Pedobear as a mascot? A reminder to coaches on the sidelines?

Sucks for them. They probably paid an advertising agency thousands of dollars to come up with this grand new campaign, only for it to blow up in their faces.
 
2012-07-19 09:50:31 AM
Heh. I was at a KFC a while back, that had one of those "Donate a dollar and you can write your name on a thing and we'll hang it up" charities going on.

They said "Thanks for helping children", and one was clearly signed "Ped O. Bear". The register jockey couldn't fathom what me and my brother found so amusing.

Nestle has been forced to take down an image from its Kit Kat Facebook fan page, after it emerged that it was similar to an icon used to ward off paedophiles.

Are all bears out now? All bear suits?

2012-07-19 09:51:36 AM

"We produced this photo - of a real guy in a bear suit - to launch Instagram through our Facebook community," a spokeswoman for the company said. "The picture is not Pedobear."




Yes, it is. Literally.
 
2012-07-19 09:52:52 AM
oh come on. this bear didn't have any of the pedo features like the pedo bear.

lets judge all bears as pedo!!
 
2012-07-19 09:54:20 AM
Who wouldn't want their kids to know enjoying Kit Kat™ is ok but not in a strangers van. Is Nestle™ now endorsing pedophilia by removing the anti-peso mascot? I just don't get it.
 
2012-07-19 09:54:57 AM
Am I the only one that thinks this story is just retarded? It's a frickin bear costume for chrissake, any bear costume will probably have some resemblance to pedobear. Does everyone really need to get their panties in a twist about it? OMG IT KINDA LOOKS LIKE PEDOBEAR HOLLY SHIAT jeez relax kids. It's a guy in a bear costume holding a candy bar, nothing to get all bent out of shape about. And they call is some self-proclaimed social media expert to comment on the story about the dos and don'ts of marketing online. Everyone involved has an overinflated sense importance.

OK, but is there a rule against a pedophile using pedobear if it works for them?

The 7-11 near my work has a pedobear hidden inside it. We should make it part of the programming test.

"Why are we at 7-11?"
"There is an internet meme hidden in the store. Find it."

I've always thought, I would have a tough time explaining to a jury why I thought posting a picture of pedobear would be funny, if such a thing ever came up.

"So, do you find child molestation funny?"
"No, well, er, yes. I mean, it can be. I mean, not real molestation. But the idea that a cartoon bear could be a pedophile and want to lure children to his lair with candy, and disapproval of some children as "too old." Well, that's not quite funny either. But trust me, I am 100% against the actual molestation of real children."

FTA:

""Before social media we would have been laughing at their expense," she said. "Now companies like Nestle know immediately that things have gone very very wrong and don't have to invest in big budget ads to find out."

Or perhaps if marketing people weren't mindless drones, they would know better to begin with.

The color, the fringe at the base of the head, the smile on the muzzle, the eyes... It's farking Pedobear, OK? Deal with it.

No. you're mistaken. It's not used to "ward off paedophiles". It's used to reference them. And is, more often then you would like to believe, used joyfully as their banner child.

Fail indeed, but it's at least an understandable mistake, since it's modeled after similar Japanese sites and has a bunch of Japanese-centric boards.

I'll give them a pass since they at least got pedobear right.

Why would you use a bear in the first place to advertize something called Kit Kat? Wouldn't you want to use a cat of some kind? Maybe they could use a cat that's in an unusual place. Like looking down from a hole in the ceiling or something.
