Chummy Marketing

I was raiding the cupboards for a snack earlier and found a Kabuto pot noodle I bought so long ago it was just within the BBE date. The noodles themselves were dire enough, but the chummy blurb and directions were truly COVID-tier marketing bullshit. It reminded me of this old thread, which hasn't been updated in 5 years. The world may have turned into a plague-infested hellscape since 2015, but I doubt that's stopped the matey marketers from plopping cutesy blurbs all over our supermarket shelves.

Why is having a sharp mouth (which I presume is like having a sharp tongue) a good thing?

If you had a soft heart why would you have a sharp tongue?

Presumably a sharp tongue would involve something of a rasping design, like slugs have.

This is in no way an attempt to say 'we've covered this', but there was also the more recent Infantilisation thread if you want to go down a hole and emerge covered in more chummy marketing sewage.

There is a term for this I recently discovered, maybe on here.

Wackaging.

It is good to know the name of something I hate.

Chummy marketing can get bent. I have chosen your product from your faceless advertising team as I believe your product at the time will serve a purpose to me. I also believe this chummy marketing is directed towards a certain market. For example you won't see chummy marketing on the Stone Island website, yet you will see it on a website like Lush.

since they invented it, it's amazing how Innocent managed to remain top of their cutesy chummy marketing game with that fucking annoying "it's blue when it's clearly green" thing

in fact it was kind of clever because they subverted it by being annoying and contrarian to spur engagement. but still shit for cunts

The TV channel Dave is the ne plus ultra of this wank.  The TV channel is called Dave because everyone has a mate called Dave, yeah?  And this TV channel is like a mate, yeah?  And Dave probably has twelve pints and a kebab on a Friday with his mates before shagging the barmaid in the bus shelter.  Etc etc

I've always thought it would be better named Finchy, such is the ubiquity if that man's voice on the channel. It's a perfect match though to be fair.
