Bad Marketing?


Take Thomas & Friends with you to the water. This is such a good-looking wrap around bath towel with a hood and hand pockets on each end to keep you warm and cozy with Thomas after coming out of the water. It features a big picture of Thomas the Tank Engine. This towel measures 49” x 23” is made of 100% cotton.

Take Abu & Friends with you to Iraq. This is such a good-looking wrap around canvas towel with a hood and hand pockets on each end to keep you warm and cozy with Abu after being tortured. It features a positive and negative circuit. This towel measures 49” x 23” is made of 100% canvas.

  1. Tom Baker Says :

    Bad marketing indeed. I swear the Abu picture was the FIRST thought in my mind.


  2. tos Says :

    For some reason this made me think of Robert Byrd.


  3. Jersey McJones Says :

    Tos, you’re not old enough for that picture to remind you of Robert Byrd. You are, however, old enough to remember David Duke. And, just so you know, more Republicans  (ex)klansm en have been elected to the congress, than Democrats. Read “The Fiery Cross.”

    Egad!!!


  5. Jet Netwal Says :

    Good lord. What marketing genius thought the pointy hood was the way to go?


  6. Cadavre Says :

    To you two bemaoning Byrd and Duke - those guys admitted the mistakes and moved on - so should all of us.

    Duke and Byrd are patriots. The cool thing about being human - and being an American - is that we can admit our shortsighted ness and failures - and improve.

    Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results.

    We know who the insanies are

    […] The Thomas the Tank Engine hooded towel. Perfect for drying your kid, or their next Halloween costume as a Abu Ghraib inmate. […]

    I agree. Now if we can just get passed some other things.


  9. BYSHOP Says :

    Pleading guilty doesn’t commute the sentence. I don’t see that they made any attempt at rehab or paid any pennance. Both gentlemen are tainted, and rightly so.


  10. Liberal Jarhead Says :

    Duke recently participated in a conference in Iran that was focused primarily on denying that the Holocaust happened. He hasn’t changed.


  11. Josh Tinley.com Says :

    […] Questionable Marketing of Thomas the Tank Engine Beach Towel (Bring It On!) […]


  12. Lazy Iguana Says :

    I really though you had photoshoped this one. But then I went to the link.

    Marketing is not exactly considered a “hard” program to get a BA degree in :)
