Re: Finish this sentence: "I will probably have to punch someone if..."

Fortunately, real people dont actually order 'Soco'. That only happens in that wonderfully execrable advert.

I will probably have to punch someone if I hear them cite another unsourced example of "political correctness" in my presence.

It was tried on me while I was working bar last year at least three times. So of course I took glee in questioning what it was exactly they wanted, making them point and then say the ****ing name. Seriously, people. JD I can cope with because it's a contraction that people came up with themselves. Soco is retarded.

Though admittedly I had a slightly different bar technique than most. It's easy once you realise everyone on the other side of that wood is an idiot.

I will probably have to punch someone if, regardless of the fact that I have never met them before in my life, they still try to kiss me at New Year.

Re: Finish this sentence: "I will probably have to punch someone if..."

Who cares if someone abbreviates the name of a drink at the bar? I mean, I wouldn't do it, but then I don't drink Southern Comfort and Coke. I'd hardly think it was cause for physical violence though (or even particularly annoying).

Do you get angry when people order just "a lager, mate" instead of the full correct name "One pint of Stella Artois please" too?

First off, it's a REALLY bad name for a drink.

Secondly, it's part of a concerted effort by the makers of Southern Comfort to appeal to a younger audience. Which brings me to:

thirdly: Someone was PAID to think up such an abysmal name.

Fourth: People using it are buying into a totally artificial image.

Fifth: It's a REALLY bad name for a drink.

So, in conclusion anyone using SoCo really does deserve a punch in the face, with a knife.

What All Systems Go said re the first part.

And yes I do find it slightly irritating when people just ask for lager, but that's probably because I'm brand fussy about the lager I drink.

Welcome to Marketing 101, dude

While you guys might think it's terrible, I bet that drink sales of Southern Comfort will go up by at least 20% after people see and hear this gimmick. Even if you don't like it, it makes you remember Southern Comfort at the bar when a bit tipsy and trying to decide which drink to buy.

For example - who had drunk Magners (or even heard of it) before 2 years ago? Then they throw a load of ice in a glass, say "Magners and ice is so refreshing!" and suddenly I'm seeing pubs full of people drinking the stuff, as it's "new and exciting".

I'm sure the same people would be annoyed if someone asked for "a pint of wife beater" at the bar as well.

Re: Finish this sentence: "I will probably have to punch someone if..."

I believe I am correct in saying that 'Magners' was only released in Great Britain 3 years ago, and it was launched initially in Scotland. So it's new and exciting because it is NEW.

If someone asks for lager, I ask them what kind they'd like (unless they've just returned, say, a Tennents glass to the bar because that's a bit of a giveaway) since we carry four. It's like if someone says 'a whiskey and lime please' I'll ask what whiskey. That's pretty much a different thing that someone asking for a 'Soco', dude.

Welcome to Marketing 101, dude

While you guys might think it's terrible, I bet that drink sales of Southern Comfort will go up by at least 20% after people see and hear this gimmick. Even if you don't like it, it makes you remember Southern Comfort at the bar when a bit tipsy and trying to decide which drink to buy.
Do you think the issue people have here is that it may not increase the profits of the company? Am I supposed to fall to my knees and weep with joy that an advertisement increases sales of the product it is advertising?

I have a particular hatred of advertising. this hatred increases exponentially when the advert in question tries to sell a product on something other than the properties of the product (i.e. all adverts) and is even higher when they try to start a fad (especially such a shitty one as this).

I have no inverest on what this does for the company (actually, I hope sales go down, just in the interests of justice), it's the principle of the thing.

I think advertising is fascinating.

I wouldn't be surprised if they'd chosen a "shitty name" for it on purpose, just to stimulate discussion over who hates it the most. Even by discussing it further and further, the Southern Comfort brand is being spread. You might think it's in a negative way, but advertising isn't polarised into "good" and "bad". Especially advertising for alcholic drinks, which rely a lot on their brand names, imagery and people's brand loyalty.

I don't see what the big deal is. As long as the barman knows what is being ordered, who cares?

People used to ask me for "Wickeds" at the bar for ages, because of the WKD advert. It confused me once or twice because they weren't calling it by its correct name. I wouldn't say it was something that really annoyed me though. Maybe I'm just not as angry as a lot of the people on these forums

Propaganda is interesting but that doesn't mean it's a good thing. If you've got a fascination about how the mind of a serial killer works it can interest you, but it doesn't mean the subject of investigation is vindicated because his actions provide you with a distraction from eveyday life.

That's the point I was trying to make. Thanks Lok.

(and I agree - the whole gimmick is absolutely retarded. it seems to work though - never underestimate the stupidity of the common consumer!)

Well in my time (a few years) working on and off within a certain retail chain before I get a proper job, no one has ever been as successful as Magners in getting an ad out there and becoming so popular. The surprising thing is that Magners isn't cheap either, yet it's bought in large quantities. The idea of serving a pint* on ice seemed to be unique enough to get people to buy into it.

For me there are tricks in selling where if the pitch is right, you can get anyone to buy anything if they can afford it.

*a lot less than a pint then. What a convenient way for pub chains to save money.

Actually, the bottle itself contains a full pint - it depends on where you go as to whether or not they give you the half-full bottle as well.


The SoCo advert. May the ****ers who came up with this burn in hell.

Re: Finish this sentence: "I will probably have to punch someone if..."

I'm getting awfully confused here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulmers

http://uk.biz.yahoo.com/06052006/17/...d-magners.html

As far as I can make out Magners is called Bulmers in ROI but cannot be called Bulmers outwith ROI because they do not own the trademark for 'Bulmers' outwith ROI, hence it is called Magners. The Bulmers Original cider which we see now competing with Magners is actually produced by English compant HP Bulmer. The company which makes Magners was affiliated with the English Bulmers company for some time but this ended in 1949, hence the product known as 'Magners' has never been called Bulmers in Great Britain. Magners was launched in Great Britain in 2003 and was a new brand to the market.


Anyway this is all straying from the point rather a lot. Actually the whole soco argument is straying from the point but never mind. I don't know why I hate the Southern comfort ad so much but it bugs the arse off me, and if I heard someone ordering a 'soco' in my local I'd have to urge to stab them in the eye with a fork. It's just such bullshit, it's like they're embarassed to call it 'Southern Comfort' any more because it sounds too old or too uncool or something. I think I'll start ordering Bo Sa and tonic and see how far I get.

I will probably have to punch someone if J.D. Drew's five year deal gets nixed because of shoulder concerns.

People used to ask me for "Wickeds" at the bar for ages, because of the WKD advert. It confused me once or twice because they weren't calling it by its correct name. I wouldn't say it was something that really annoyed me though. Maybe I'm just not as angry as a lot of the people on these forums
WKD's a pronounciation thing that I had no problem with. I think if someone asked for a 'vodbull' I'd have taken the piss out of them to the same extent as I did with 'soco' but I can't think of any other stupid contractions I'd been given. Hell, if you can't have some fun with your work, what's the point?

Re: Finish this sentence: "I will probably have to punch someone if..."

That poor son of a bitch.

I was privvy to an accountancy meal once. Jesus ****, I find it hard to understand why people would want to talk about their work all the time outside of it, but accountancy? They had jokes about nominal ledgers. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.

Re: Finish this sentence: "I will probably have to punch someone if..."

Janis Joplin's favorite drink was Southern Comfort. I think I should have to punch someone in the nose should they ever suggest that Janis Joplin would ever have ordered Soco.

Re: Finish this sentence: "I will probably have to punch someone if..."

I can't stand it when smoker's don't pay attention and blow smoke at you, then not even notice you're sitting there waving it away and coughing. That really makes me want to punch them.

I will probably have to punch someone if they dont say "excuse me would you mind not smoking near me" and just cough in a very fake way.

If you didn't have an addiction there wouldn't be a problem in the first place.

If you went to the pub and there were used needles all over the place you wouldn't accept 'oh you should have asked me to watch what I'm doing with the remains of my addiction intake' as an acceptable answer.

It absolutely is the truth, and so how about the person saying it to me in a condescending manner to me do it themselves as opposed to being lazy(read sitting inside, watching TV) and give proper specifications as to what completion entails. Oh, and I appreciated getting pulled off programming one of my lab assignments so that I could facilitate his TV watching.

Re: Finish this sentence: "I will probably have to punch someone if..."

Fake coughing is passive-aggressive bullshit. If you have a problem with what someone's doing you either say so, or shut the goddamn hell up and quit whining.

Like when there's a drunk guy on the bus chatting shit or singing and people tutting or sighing loud enough that there's some sense of camradery between the other idiots on the thing but quiet enough that if they get called on it they can look away into the window and pretend they didn't hear anything.

Jackasses.

I will probably have to punch someone if they keep thinking their mobile phone is a boombox when in public.
