Parody Marketing

March 12, 2009

I bet you have all seen the Wii Fit ads, but this is a parody of one that I was shown in a marketing class. So since there has been an addition of a Wii to The Lair, I thought this would be a great ad for everyone to check out. I am not trying to make fun of Wii Fit because I have one.  But this ad seems to be doing something good for the company even though it blatantly pokes fun at those of us who have a Wii Fit. It basically supports all the things the Wii haters say. But with over 3 million hits on YouTube, Nintendo is getting some pretty good advertising.

Another good parody is the one for MacBook Air. These parodies are a great tool to use to get to the younger crowds and get people talking.

Here is another good one making fun of the new Microsoft surface.


Megan is student from Illinois that’s spending some time with us this week.

    Terrific post Megan. We’re excited about the Wii on loan from Alex. My Mii is adorable and feisty. I’m feeling hip between Tangelos and the stuff in The Lair.
