Kelly Osbourne Featured in New Doritos Ad Campaign

Well, her show tanked so she will make the usual psuedo star come back...be in an ad campaign. Kelly will appear in the new Doritos "Friendchips" ad campaign.

Kelly said: "It's fantastic to be involved with a big brand like Doritos because I've enjoyed eating them since I was a kid.

"I immediately wanted to do the commercials after I read their script ideas where I would get to perform my songs ... and munch on Doritos. All I can say is, it doesn't get much better than that!"

The Great Cross Media Effectiveness Debate

Over on the other weblog I have, MarketingFix, and on a discussion forum I belong to, a great debate has raged on about a study referenced in the post below that concluded a very enlightening fact about the mix of offline and online media: that the shift of media dollars from offline (specifically TV) to online increased schedule delivery. You can read about it here. Several people chose to rip apart the methodology of the study without having reviewed the actual study. But my friend and co-blogger on MarketingFix, Rick Bruner, pointed out very gracefully that research is directional. And that taken in combination with other factors, it can be very valuable. It will never answer all the questions. There is always a margin for error. But the fact remains, there is indicative evidence that moving media dollars to the web will increase the delivery of your media schedule. Read up on it and decide for yourself

Moving More Media Dollars Online Makes Sense

�Two years ago, I would not have dared to tell an advertiser that they should put 10-15% of their marketing budget into interactive advertising,� said WashingtonPost.Newsweek.Interactive publisher and CEO Chris Schroeder. �Today, I am calling for that�advertisers should commit 15% of their budgets to interactive. This may be a bold request, but it is a bold request based in hard research, smart technology, and the maturity of our medium.�

More and more, we are hearing the call for the increased allocation of media dollars to online. And this makes sense as research continues to point out the ability of online media to increase schedule delivery as well as results.

Grey Goose, previosly a relatively unknown vodka but now the third best selling vodka, has launched a television advertising campaign on the the Golf channel.

Prior to 1996, there was a self-imposed ban on hard liquor advertising on television. Yet, since 1996, there have been few hard liquor advertisers that have aired campaigns. Broadcast channels still ban the ads.

The Grey Goose sponsorship on the Golf Channel consists of spots and a talk show called "Grey Goose 19th Hole".

Hollywood Stars Featured in Pro and Con War Advertisements

Martin Sheen made a commercial for moveon.org stating his stance on the war: Against. Now we have former U.S. Senator, Fred Thompson (the one you have seen in a lot of movies), stating his stance on the war: For. I suppose using Hollywood stars raises the awareness level and perhaps stimulates some conversation among us "regular" people but it just seems strange that every major issue these days gets reduced to Hollywood puffery.
