I guess this is technically a client plug. But if I hadn’t written a guest post on it over at the CI Sense blog, I’d have written it here. We generated some reports for trademark filings associated with the American presidential candidates. I went through them and pulled out 21 of the weirdest products and slogans. Here’s a sampling:
- Bearack Obama – Allegedly to become a future teddy bear. We googled for some samples, but only found this eager ursine Democrat and this creepy blog.
- Broccoli Obama – We wish we were kidding about this vegetable dish.
- Obama Llama – Yep, that’d be a stuffed toy. And, of course, the unrelated theme song.
My favourite is probably all of the incredibly lame versions of what ‘O.B.A.M.A.’ stands for.
