- A woman in white walking in the middle of the road picked out by the SEAT's headlights.
- A message to a missing mother (really? a missing mother?) on the smartphone (presumably connected to the SEAT's electronics system).
- A nasty looking package lying in the dark near a white SEAT car.
- A man who drops something as he closes the boot of his SEAT car, probably a clue after his murder in a few minutes time.
Every time I see a SEAT car now I think of murder, death, crime...
Since I wrote the above the other day I think I have changed my mind. I was thinking about a supermarket logo (Tigros) which annoys me...
...and I've vaguely thought I'd never go to a their shops. Then they open one directly on my route to and from work...and in I pop.
I don't like the logo because it is aggressive and twee at the same time, with the tiger in one two tone 2D style, while the apple is colourful with a shadow to give a 3D look. But though it annoys me it does not stop me shopping there, which leads me to think that much marketing/logo design/adverts have no effect whatsoever.
So maybe I will have a look at a SEAT car the next time it is time to buy a new car. Hopefully not for years...
Marketing (apparent failures or successes) does not always beat convenience and price.
