UPS Vaccinates Monkeys, Sells Cheap Brides in Whiteboard Spoof


We were waiting for somebody sitting high on the rapier-wit scale to catch the UPS whiteboard campaign (featuring pseudo-indy band Postal Service) and spoof to heart's content. Thankfully it didn't take long.

Shawn of Shedwa points us to some savory whiteboard madness. The mail order bride one is an instant UPS classic, but our favourite is monkey sex. "Let's give this little guy a banana," the demonstrator says pleasantly after explaining UPS vaccinates monkeys and kills neighbors.

What does it mean when a spoof can elicit more satisfaction than the service itself?

I am totally missing why people are mocking this website. I thought it was nice and creative. The spoof ads aren't funny to me. My two cents. Thanks.

The problem I have with the UPS campaign is that it is user-friendly and creative, but I've never once had a good experience with UPS. They are forever breaking, losing or sloppily digging through something.

Great marketing that leads to a brand relationship you'll regret again and again is just as bad as ... well, bad marketing.
