I love talking about advertising and this time Oscar Meyer has done something pretty rediculous or completely brilliant? I can’t decide yet. I was put on by this advertisement by a fellow Brandswag employee, Colin Clark. It was funny at first. I did laugh and then I thought to myself.. how ironic…

The wiener took out a print ad in major newspapers and talked about an online communication medium. HAHA.

I am not quite sure whether or not to take this ad seriously. It seems as if Oscar Meyer would rather play off of a trend then an actual buying pattern. So the question is… as bloggers… as social media advocates and users… should we laugh Oscar Meyer off the shelves or are they going to be laughing to the bank?
