I spotted this cool bit of subway advertising on New York City’s N-line heading into Times Square this weekend. I first wrote about this year’s big Mike and Ike campaign back on March 18th; When Mikes and Ikes get competitive – A Fun New Just Born promotion, and this is a pretty cool part of that.
I’m not used to seeing subway ads for candy, so this really jumped out at me. The idea here is that Ike, now distanced from Mike, has produced this piece of funky-cool art. I can dig it.
I wondered if this campaign would catch on when I first became aware of it. If it’s any indication, the person I was hanging with at the time stated, after looking at the poster, “I really want some Mike and Ikes now.” Guess it’s working…
See ya next time!
