Some Incoming Marketing Is Just So Funny

As I read two incoming Emails this morning, I laughed to myself because they seemed to be perfectly interconnected.

Here are the two titles:

  • OMG – We’re working late too!
  • Drink Red & Smile White with NEW WineStraws

I think someone is staying up too late, when what they’re coming up with is a wine straw.

What do you think?

I’m speechless.

  1. Next step would be the Riedel straws, each one a different shape for a specific wine.

    Ha! You’re up too late, too, Christian. Too funny.

    Thanks for mentioning my name at the Oregon Wine Symposium. What a small grapevine we have, huh?

    I have a friend that drinks coffee through a straw for the very same reason. I thought she was a little strange, but I guess there might be a market….. CoffeeStraws?

  4. Jo Diaz says:

    I tried coffee like that once,a nd hot coffee hit the back of my throat… One time only for me, a straw, and coffee.

  5. KJ Karl says:

    Brilliant, Christian!!!!

  6. Oh, lord. I guess we are a gadget fetished nation. What’s next? Wine drinking goggles to protect your eyes from dangerous volatile acidity?

    Well, I guess the wine straws could be considered another way to aerate wine…slurp slurp. add that to Christian’s idea and we’re all up too late.

  8. Wow – that is horrifying.

    Ryan… You found the words!

  10. Jo Diaz says:

    Steve… So now, someone’s on that!

    I’ve used wine straws before- but i found they were difficult to clean. I think simply straws makes a better product- mostly because it comes with a pipe cleaner, and better looking case. just my opinion http://bit.ly/simplystraws
