Bad Panda

Biomimicmarketing wars: While the WWF has worked for years to market the Panda as a vulnerable, cute and cuddly animal, the Egyptian cheese brand Panda needs only five commercials to turn the image of the panda into that of a crude, violent, intolerable beast.

We would call the readers of this blog with first hand experiences of Panda's, to report which 'Panda image' is the correct one, however we anticipate not many readers ever encountered a panda in real life, no? Zoo's don't count!

I read a few months ago about some guy getting mauled by a panda because he climbed into the enclosure so that he could give it a hug.

Great commercials. Rather remind me of the Aussie "drop bears".

Nice to see that this commercial is funny just because the WWF has promoted it as sweet and cuddly. What other brands would be fun to experiment with and change the meaning of their logo?

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
