Just my rant:
Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen restaurants have been running ads on TV for some time now. Perhaps you have seen them. Do you get as angry and disturbed as I do with these commercials? Perhaps not. But I often wonder, when you have an entire ad campaign that is NOT CORRECT, wouldn't someone in the company notice...and tell them? Here's the current ad:
Notice anything wrong? Well, those are NOT butterfly shrimp! They are just fried shrimp. There have been other ads for other flavors of "butterfly" shrimp that are all similar. Yelling at my TV doesn't seem to deter Popeye's from continuing with this gross error. When I first saw this particular ad, I thought, OK, that woman is asking "Why" they are called "butterfly"; WHOOPEE. - But no, it wasn't answered.
THESE are butterfly shrimp (immediate right). The reason they are called that is because the chef cuts them part way down the front and when they are laid flat, they look like the shape of a butterfly. THIS is what they look like after frying them!
I wonder what the "story" behind all this is? How did these commercials get made without SOMEONE standing up and saying "Hey guys, I think something is wrong here?" What is the company culture? Is it "Don't rock the shrimp boat." If the boss, or the CEO likes the word butterfly, but doesn't really understand it, is there no one who will tell him/her? Are the managers at Popeye's and all the high-level ad executives lost at sea? Someone needs to send out an SOS (Save Our Shrimp)!
POPEYE'S - GET A CLUE!
Okay, done with my rant.
