I screengrabbed this a while ago and just got around to blogging it. I am a massive fan of brands bringing us entertainment or utility (getting away from the zero-sum value exchange, interruption etc). McCafe allegedly unleashed a “marketing blitzkrieg”, and I’m pleased they didn’t spend it all on McCafe TV ads.
Hey, I am not going to knock a commercial-free Daily Show, but it would have been nice if there had been some raison d’etre (forgive my lack of circumflex) for this association. That said, I assume for a launch one of the main objectives would initially be “awareness” over “relevance” so all in all I give this a thumbs aloft.
