packing heat

Alright, so packaging-related blogs are the lamest. It's true! Here's another one. From a delicious box of Fruity Bix.

Goddamn teasers, they just make the wait seem longer.

i always find those packaging teasers hilarious. it is like they envisage a scenario where they change packaging without warning, and there are frightened consumers running around coles yelling:

"the fruity bix have disappeared!"
"can you find the fruity bix?"
"no! can you find the fruity bix?" "no! let's eat kellogg's!"
"ok! these cornflakes are tasty!"
"they sure are. i never liked those fruity bix"

Hah yeah, there was this awesome ad for Continental Soup a while ago that focused on that very same problem.

A woman and her doddery mother are seen standing in a supermarket aisle in front of a ridiculously expansive column of Continental Soup.

They look very confused and ask a shelf stacker where the Continental Soup is. "We've looked everywhere. Are you out of stock? Oh noes, my dinner plans!".

Safe to say that with a bit of prompting they safely, er, turn around, and find the Continental Soup. Crisis averted.
