Crappy Viral Marketing Campaign Taking To The Subway

It seems that NBC is supplementing it’s terrible New York Times “viral” ads with ad buys for Kings in New York City’s subway. Are we the only ones who think they stole that logo from the Freelancers Union subway ads? Just when we thought this campaign couldn’t get any worse, NBC ups the ante by stealing intellectual property from a non-profit organization. Did they at least use freelance designers for the logo?

    Actually, they’re pretty clearly modeled on the “Keep Calm and Carry On” British propeganda posters from WWII that are so trendy now. Which is quite clever, if you actually think about it.

    But if you don’t like viral marketing campaigns period, it stands to reason you won’t like this one.
