    Posted by on Aug 29th, 2014

    Today’s lesson in marketing fails (or win depending on how you look at it really) comes courtesy of Hershey’s, the largest chocolate manufacturer in North America. When creating a new company logo, try not to make it look like a steaming pile of poo.

    Unfortunately the chocolate brand behind the iconic Hershy’s Kisses redid their logo and simplified it, and now people are saying it looks like the poo emoji.

    failSometimes simplifying things is not always better.

    Obviously a whole bunch of people on social media picked up the similarity and made a stink about it. See what i did there? Ok fine i’ll go sit in the corner.

    Here’s what their logo looked like before incase you were wondering.

    Ya much better that one.

    Hello Kitty is not actually a cat, but a little girl the company says

    Thousands of Hello Kitty fans lost their sh*t yesterday when the company that makes the iconic merchandise said that it isn’t actually a cat, but a little British girl who’s real name is Kitty White.

    Also the people at Sanrio who created Hello Kitty must all smoke some serious weed if they think they can convince people that there is  ‘no element of a cat in Hello Kitty’s setting’.

    Whatever…If this is a little British girl then i’m the love child of Julius Malema and Steve Hofmeyer.

    Yes i totally see it now. No i don’t.

    “Hello Kitty is not a cat. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature.”

    “Her real name is Kitty White, he explained, and she was born in southern England on November 1, 1974. She is a Scorpio and blood type A.She has a twin sister, Minny White, and lives in an unnamed suburb of London with father George and mother Mary” [Yahoo]

    Ya right…keep smoking that good sh*t.
