Scrabble: The Beautiful Word

It’s so refreshing when companies go against the norm, and Scrabble / Mattel certainly did that. In fact they did that and a bag of chips, they went balls-out crazy! With the current economic climate it’s nice to see a company leaving the well trodden path of safe, forgettable advertising. The whole point of an advert is to stick in your mind, and these will laser etch onto your frontal lobe right down to the cerebellum! Admittedly I would never of guessed the product, but they encapsulated me enough to stick it out until the end, and left me hungry for more.

great idea, it’s funny cause whenever i play scabble i always try to make sentences and poems out of the words while i’m waiting, so for me this is spot on.

No kidding. Talk about taking a chance. I’m not sure it makes me think of Scrabble. Maybe that’s the point…
