(MSNBC)   Dr. Pepper creates "milk with attitude," calls it "Raging Cow," and uses fake blog to market it. (Think they got that idea here?)   ( divider line

I wrote off name-brand soda a long time ago, i love the cheap fruity generic shiat you can get at Save-Rite.

*gulp gulp gulp*

2003-03-04 07:43:17 PM  
Speaking of blogs, anyone remeber the addy for the farker's who works at the porn store?

I wanna see what's going on now in the back room

"milk with attitude"

What, like a carton of hate or something?
2003-03-04 07:43:28 PM  
The bigger question is when will SbB Maggie have her own soda. That is the question that I am posing that is bigger.
2003-03-04 07:43:47 PM  
Man, that milk sounds totally extreme
2003-03-04 07:44:24 PM  
Why dr. pepper why? I was willing to forgive Code Red, but jesus? "Milk based product with an attitude!!!"

ARRGHHH. First off, it can't have attitude, it's farking milk. Second, You DO NOT rip off goddamned Marty Scorcese!

Looks like it's coca-cola for me.
2003-03-04 07:44:29 PM  
I need to think about the implications of this over a refreshing Dr Pepper.
2003-03-04 07:44:31 PM  
Dr Pepper contacts fark about pissing off user base with popups and interstial ads...
Drew declines, but asks for suggestions...
98% of users start babbling about Dr Pepper and including it in PS contests. Becomes a big thing.
Dr Pepper pays Fark zero.
Dr Pepper now using a blog and tricking idiots into linking to said blog to promote a new product.

Seem a bit strange to you? I think a couple cases of this new stuff ought to be showing up on Drew's doorstep every week for the next year or so.... assuming it's any good.
2003-03-04 07:44:52 PM  
Grab a carton a suck it down! (sorry, I couldn't help it)
2003-03-04 07:44:59 PM  
Milk with attitude? It gives you mad cow disease.
2003-03-04 07:45:13 PM  
Boy, I bet the cow that milk came from sure was mad...

I got a million of em! Try the veal, door's to your left.
2003-03-04 07:45:17 PM  
It's milk...TO THE EXTREME!!!

Because honestly, what is more daring then drinking a mass-marketed beverage along with the rest of America? Skydiving? Please...

Darnit, Jeff, you took my first idea for a Fark username! THAT'S MY NAME, DARNIT!
2003-03-04 07:46:44 PM  
Nice, JerseyTim, nice. Everyone hated the failure that was "Poochy".
2003-03-04 07:48:25 PM  
Milk is nasty.
2003-03-04 07:49:39 PM  
Especially Milk...

2003-03-04 07:49:49 PM  
How much of an utter shiathead must you be to pick up on this pathetic campaign? What's more, why the fark would I want milk with an attitude? Where the fark are they hiring these people?! WHAT THE FUC IS WRONG WITH SOCIETY?!
2003-03-04 07:50:08 PM  
This is just more proof that anyone that has anything to do with Advertising should be shot.
2003-03-04 07:50:25 PM  
GIS for "raging cow"

2003-03-04 07:50:28 PM  
Ick, pina colada flavored milk?

I wonder if they'll have a Dr. Pepper flavor.

2003-03-04 07:51:24 PM  
We are now one step closer to the futuristic world envisioned by Anthony Burgess in his oh so excellent work entitled "A Clockwork Orange".

Milk Plus anyone?
2003-03-04 07:51:44 PM  
Am I the only one that thinks Dr. Pepper tastes like soap?
2003-03-04 07:52:08 PM  
Poor bloggers, selling their souls for some T-Shirts.
2003-03-04 07:53:10 PM  
biatch and moan, sure.

But let's be honest - show of hands how many of us will at least pick up a single bottle cause you're curious now? My hand is up.

That's why this shiat works.
2003-03-04 07:53:20 PM  
Well, Artem, frankly, I don't EAT soap.
2003-03-04 07:54:11 PM  
Well, Carme, ... No, no I won't.
2003-03-04 07:54:50 PM  
Anyone check out the porduct list that Dr./7up controls? If you buy Root beer, ginger ale, orange/ grape soda, you are buying something of theirs.
And Artem: Yes. You... *sigh* Yes.
2003-03-04 07:55:44 PM  
When declares your marketing strategy to be strange, you know it's doomed to failure..........
2003-03-04 07:56:23 PM  
Milk with a tude?

I will tell you about milk with a "tude" it I have some milk in my fridge from last june, it has more "tude" than anyone would ever want milk to have.

With the right blog I could sell it on e-bay?
2003-03-04 07:57:28 PM  
Strongbad and the Cheat presents:

milk...TO THE LIMIT!!!
2003-03-04 07:58:15 PM  
Why is it that advertisers think that "attitude" is a desirable quality? If I had a co-worker, or employee, or boss, or friend, or classmate, with "attitude" I would hate his/her guts.
2003-03-04 08:00:33 PM  
Mmmmm...milk plus vellocet
2003-03-04 08:01:48 PM  
mmmmm...nothing I like better than to drink a bottle of warm milk during a game of basketball in the hot sun. and it's always waiting for me on the sidelines, taunting me with its curdled goodness. I also like to pour it's creamy, chunky goo onto the coach in celebration after a game.
2003-03-04 08:03:16 PM  
No Hitoshi comments yet?!?
2003-03-04 08:03:33 PM  
Dr. Pepper's got the wrong attitude about this.
2003-03-04 08:03:54 PM  
"Milk with an attitude"? Sounds about as viable a "tampons with a kick!" I can't say whether or not I'll abstain from buying this krap, but they're certainly off on the wrong foot as far as the marketing goes.
2003-03-04 08:04:36 PM  
I guess I am getting old.

I don't want "Chocolate Insanity" OR "Pina Colada Chaos" when I drink milk...I just want...well...milk.

It hurts to be left behind. Will somefarker hold me? (F)

/off to empty my colostemy bag...

2003-03-04 08:11:11 PM  
That dude Alex from Clockwork Orange should sue.
2003-03-04 08:11:52 PM  
Amigajoe That reminds me of an "Angry Beavers" episode where everything was EXTREME!!! It was great the AB's had seen or heard something about like X-Games or a Moutain Dew everything was - like EXTREME NOSE BLOWING! EXTREME EAR ITCHING!, EXTREME BALOGNA EATING!!!

Loved that...


It was it...

tampons with a kick

...and I'll raise you "maxi-pads with wings!"

We already have those? Oh.
2003-03-04 08:13:48 PM  
No no no. They got it all wrong. You can't make something popular by promoting your enthusiasm for it. You make it popular by LAMBASTING it. Because it's much easier to have "tude" and show how cool you are by bringing everybody else down than it is to actually support something you like. There's not enough negativity there. This is the formula that makes Joe Millionaire and Save Karyn so popular: that they're despicable, and people will jump at the chance to willingly rip into them.

Now, if this site was all about how much milk SUCKS...then maybe, just maybe, these marketing think tanks will begin to understand how viral memetic propogation--something that just happens naturally and can't be forced by any capitalist agenda--really works.
2003-03-04 08:19:05 PM  
was i the only one that noticed and was flummoxed by the word "flackitude"?
2003-03-04 08:21:51 PM  
What Ishkur say. We thought out.
2003-03-04 08:21:54 PM  
i think milk is yummy.
