if taglines were honest

iPod: It’ll break in a year, but by then you’ll want the new one.

Apple: You think you need it, we know you just want it.

Ikea: One day you’ll be able to afford real furniture.

Hummer: Get the attention you’ve always craved. While filling up the gas tank again.

Taco Bell: You’re drunk and we’re still open.

Zipcar: So convenient that you’ll ignore the high rates AND the dog hair.

Southwest Airlines: On your marks, get set, find a seat!

UHaul: We don’t guarantee availability because we can get away with it.

PopTarts: Until you realize how disgusting they are, we’ll keep making them.

Ben and Jerry’s: Whoah, dude, did you eat that whole thing?

Krispy Kreme: Less filling, just as fattening.

McDonalds: Always a good idea. Until afterwards.

Starbucks: Long lines, high prices and the best legal high available.

That Ben & Jerry's tagline could totally fit into a campaign — they're daring enough of a brand to pull that off.

The McDonalds one is fab...
I broke my "no major carbs past 5pm" rule the other day for a quarter-pounder meal and felt so bad for TWO DAYS! I had been craving it for about 2 days leading up to the meal...
McDonalds is the devil. :-)

Wendy's tagline should be the same as Taco Bell. I think they stay open until like 3:00a.m.., on the weekends. The bars all close at 2:00a.m., so go figure!

I don't know why anyone would "accidentally" buy panasonic instead of sony. These days Sony's standards are below par (I work in electricals) and panasonic better them in most markets and for a better price too. Panasonic Plasma vs Sony LCD? No question. The only thing Sony still do well, is Cameras. But hideously overpriced.

For the ipod breaking in a year one, I've had my nano for a few years. One time I was riding my bike while listening to it, and I dropped it onto the road, then ran over it with my back tire. Still works great.
