Topic: Advertising
Daiquiri for 6 persons -- Original Daiquiri recipe by Jennings S. Cox. "After the Spanish-American War, an American mining engineer was inspired to new heights of refreshment due to the hot Caribbean sun. Jennings S. Cox led a team of American engineers in a mining operation near the little town of Daiquir¿ (pronounced dye-kee-ree). Workdays under the blazing Caribbean sun were hot and sweaty. Comforts were few. To keep the men motivated in this trying environment, management gave them high salaries, free housing, free cigars, and perhaps the best reward of all, a monthly gallon of Cuba's finest rum, BACARDI..."

Correction Fluid ads that never were, never seen again
Topic: Advertising
adland -- "We've obliged the ad agency involved and removed the spec ads for a brand of correction fluid which initially were sent in and posted as live work. Despite clearly marking the ads as spec and pixelllating away the trademark and removing the correction fluids brand name everywhere, the client and ad agency felt that the whole thing needed to be removed, the whole post and all the comments." Read the story in adland. (via

Swedish Snus - New Brands
Topic: Advertising
Smokeless Snus -- Lots of new brands such as Lucky Strike, Prince and LD are currently being test-marketed in Sweden. (On 1. June 2005, smoking was banned in pubs and restaurants in Sweden.) I scanned a few 'snusdosor' (snuff boxes/cans) and uploaded them to my flickr

Snuff firms sniff a profit in smoking bans -- "It looks hellish, it tastes hellish and it smells hellish. But then, so does smoking" Read more at

"Moist smokeless tobacco is the only growing segment of the tobacco industry, with more than 920 million cans sold in 2004, almost double the total 20 years ago." according to the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company (leading brands: Copenhagen and Skoal)

[Snus is a moist powder tobacco. The most usual way to consume snus is to place it beneath the upper lip, and keep it there for a time varying from a few minutes to several hours, according to taste. Learn more in this encyclopedia article]
