Miracle Whip Gives Back Lip to Colbert

leave a comment »

A little controversy from last Thursday on The Colbert Report. He mocked the Miracle Whip campaign and instead of Miracle Whip pulling out all sponsorship from the network and all their sister sites they sent a letter to warn the opposite. Pretty interesting and smart marketing. [Thanks for suggestion of Akippi-Chan]

Dear Mr. Colbert,
Recently on your show, you tapped into a sore spot in our nation’s psyche: the eternal struggle between mayonnaise and Miracle Whip. And surprisingly, for a man of your impeccable intellect, you’ve chosen the wrong side. A side doomed to a painful, drawn-out, utter and complete defeat. Like the Plantagenets in the Hundred Years’ War. Or whichever one was the cat in “Tom and Jerry.”
Mr. Colbert, we found your attacks a little harsh, occasionally funny, and at times, wholly inaccurate (for the record, our target is 18-35, not 34). But unlike most advertisers who are so mayo, who would back down at the slightest whiff of controversy, and pull their advertising from not just your show but from your entire network and all its sister entities — we intend to do the opposite.
On Thursday, November 12, we will dominate the airspace on your show. With every commercial break, your viewers will be exposed to hardcore Miracle Whip attitude and revelry. You will see our legion of (as you call them) “mayo nay-sayers” snarfing sandwiches topped with our one-of-a-kind flavor in a very cool and totally hip way. They will be in your face and massively dope. It goes without saying, they WILL NOT TONE IT DOWN. And you will begin to see the soft, bland white walls of the mayo empire begin to collapse under the weight of its own whipped-egg pretentiousness.
Think about it Mr. Colbert. In a sense, we will own you.
We’re on a mission. We’re taking no prisoners.
We’re raising Hell, Man.
