Last Call: BMW marketing 101!

Marketing is a funny world. You have to put your product out there and try to get eyeballs on it. Take, for example, a company like BMW and its marketing team. Today is, apparently, Nutella Day (because… yeah, ok). So how do you work with that with respect to BMW?

You photoshop a slice of bread into a picture of a 4 Series Gran coupe sedan and add a witty caption. Marketing is fun. I bet the person who wrote this isn’t at home chugging alcohol right now.


Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    Rye humor.

      I got that in ~10 seconds. I don’t know if I should feel shame because I figured it out that quickly or because it wasn’t immediately apparent.

    Has anyone else been having problems with Hooniverse on a mobile phone? Often, though not 100% of the time, the “paste” option (and the other choices) do not appear for me to insert a link, for instance, into my comment. A long press on the screen will then cause it to zoom in at a different part of the page.

    Selecting the “Desktop site” checkbox sometimes fixes it. The problem seems to be more frequent after visiting a Disqus notification. I started noticing it a month or two ago

      Disqus doesn’t load in half the tries I give it on my phone, Opera on Android. Scaling can be off. Otherwise, it’s fine. On PC though, I currently have to one-click log in every single time I open a Hooniverse tab, and choose “display media” anew. Might be my privacy settings though.

      I have similar issues. The text box can be janky too. Good thing the people here rock, otherwise I doubt I’d put up with it! 😊

      Disqus is having another one of its fits. The not-a-robot picture clicking thing showed back up for me.

        Same here, I have to click on cars or zebra crossings again.

    We live in strange times, Brexit just happened, Sinn Fein are leading polls in the Irish election. Not that I take sides in these things, but what better trollmobiile to pick up right now that Margaret Thatchers former battlebus

      This certainly has a fitting dystopian vibe to it. I suppose all turrets have been removed?

        You could claim that you need them for disability reasons – I have turrets syndrome.

        I’ll get my ****ing coat….

    A couple of years ago I saw this ad for BMW motorsports apparel. I’m not sure what the marketing folks were drinking when they decided that this was the right image to pair with the phrase “Unleash the Performance”.
