People Mess With Famous Corporate Tag Lines, And We Just Can’t

[rebelmouse-image 18354591 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

We've been socialized to recognize corporations and what they represent just as much as we recognize people.

A big part of corporate marketing is some sort of catchy tag-line. We're all familiar: "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there." Or, "They're always after me Lucky Charms!" These things have become just as much a part of our collective unconscious as the stories that are passed down through our families. So what happens when we mess with it a little?

Are you like me and the 1990s were only 10 years ago?

Yes, I can do the math, but 1990 being 32 years ago still seems unreal.

Why is that?

Maybe it's the fact it marked the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st.

Nooo thank you.
