Skittles - probably the Nth post about it



I'm sure there are already hundreds of posts about it out there and I read at least 2 good ones and I'm doing something else, so I'm going to over it very quickly and be really lazy and just advise to read their posts.

Without any particular argument, I personally really like it. And whatever you think about it, a LOT of people are talking about it.

Is any press good press? Good question.
Have they basically ripped off the Modernista website? Yes - but so what?

iboy compared the whole thing to a Turducken: Check his post.

David Armano also wrote about it on Logic+Emotion, check his out. Both are interesting for different reasons.

I think it's really interesting and they're a lot of attention for their new site launch

And let's remind ourselves that Skittles adverts are generally a bit bonkers anyway, I love their latest one:



And Cherry flavoured Skittle on the top, join in the fun and change your Twitter avatar to a giant Skittle!!

dude I think it's a great piece of PR and it will be interesting to see how long they keep it up for but I can't belive you love that last ad!?!?! It doesn't even make sense!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know if they'll keep Twitter on the homepage - probably not, but then again it will probably stay on the 'Chatter' page which was always the intention, I imagine.

And the last ad doesn't make sense, but that's probably why I love it!

And how much sense is there for a brand to publish what everyone is saying about it, good or bad..?
