The wonderful @asburyandasbury kicked off a Twitter game today with the hashtag #clienttweaks. Take a famous strapline and tweet how those ‘tiny tweaks’ clients make could have totally ruined it. Some excellent examples:
@cog_design please re-arrange to ‘UKFC’ – think you may not have noticed but your version is very close to a sexual expletive #clienttweaks
@tomcopy In the VW factory they call this a lemon, which means it’s rubbish and they’re not going to use it. Buy one today #clienttweaks
@burnettie Don’t shop anywhere else for it, buy it from Argos instead. #clienttweaks
@reedwords Guinness is good for you in moderation as part of a calorie-controlled diet. #clienttweaks
@burnettie Once you take the lid off you’ll probably eat all the crisps #clienttweaks
@cog_design When it absolutely, positively, has to be there by the morning following your pre-4pm phone call and faxed confirmation #ClientTweaks
@asburyandasbury Marmite: You’ll love it. #ClientTweaks
And a few of my own:
Impossible is not much compared to what you can do with Adidas
If you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit, Club is the biscuit for you
Johnnie Walker: Jog on.
