Commercial: Did somebody say redesign?



...which does rather make you wonder, 'why bother with that re-brand?'

It also reminds me of Abi's fundamental (and still-never-bettered) critique, highlighting the limits of branding:

You walk into a bar or pub:

YOU: Can I have a Coke please?
BARKEEP: Is Pepsi OK?
YOU: Yeah, fine.


Of course, if anyone actually knows of anyone who has walked out of a drinks-serving establishment, because they didn't have their brown-gloop beverage of choice, do let me know...
