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

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

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?
