Shh. Don’t talk about how no one wants to buy this burger. The updated version of the Hamburglar, a classic McDonald’s character, had one job. He was supposed to sell “third-pounder” sirloin burgers to children of the ’70s and ’80s who grew up with the Hamburglar as part of the McDonaldLand marketing ensemble, and who are now young adult “foodies.” Yet the appeal to nostalgia and his snazzy hamburger tie weren’t enough to draw customers in to try the burger he was promoting.
The marketing campaign began back in May, as part of a push to assure Americans that McDonald’s really does use actual food in its menu items.
Four US-based airlines have joined the ban on transporting trophy kills as cargo in the midst of the public outcry against the killing of Cecil the Lion. On Monday, Delta announced that they would support the ban and Tuesday, United Airlines, American Airlines, and Virgin Atlantic followed, all confirming that they would no longer allow trophy kills as cargo.
(Tony Crescibene)Last spring, Verizon FiOS rejiggered its pay-TV slate into so-called “skinny bundles,” where customers pay for a small core base of channels and then add on smaller, niche-targeted bundles of channels as they please. The change resulted in a very public spat Disney, but the folks at Charter think it’s a good enough idea to consider.
Deadline reports that Charter CEO Tom Rutledge told analysts this morning that pay-TV companies need to stop forcing hundreds of channels down consumers’ throats.
He explained that “people are not buying that full [pay TV] package because they can’t afford it,” and so it’s up to the cable companies to create something new “at a lower retail price.”
The biggest roadblock to breaking out channels into these skinny bundles is the fact that, just like consumers are often forced to buy huge swaths of channels they may never watch just to get the few they do, pay-TV providers are being forced to buy smaller-audience channels just to get the rights to carry the popular ones.
“If we had our druthers, we’d buy our product a la carte” acknowledges Rutledge.
And breaking up existing bundled channels can get you into hot water legally.
HARLEY-DAVIDSON DESIGN EXHIBIT IN MILWAUKEE
Fans of motorcycle culture have until Labor Day to see an exhibit at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee that celebrates the design work of Willie G. Davidson.
Davidson became the brand's first design director in 1963.
Designer Arnold Scaasi, whose flamboyant creations adorned first ladies, movie stars and socialites, has died.
Scaasi died early Tuesday at New York-Presbyterian Hospital of cardiac arrest, said his longtime friend, Michael Selleck, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Simon & Schuster.
It may not look like your typical off-roading beast, but the ingenious Swincar by French company Mecanroc may be the most incredible ATV ever created. With four independent wheels mounted on spider-like legs and a suspended hammock-like seat for the driver, this thing can tackle terrain that most vehicles could never even attempt.
