Today’s four words: Vorwärts! Vorwärts! Vorwärts! Vorwärts!
Everything was going along just fine: we had a brand new campaign slogan (“Forward,” in case you live in a cave), Bin Laden was still dead, and Big Guy was busy giving himself a shout out while spiking the ball in the end zone. Then someone breaks the story about our new campaign marching tune being a Third Reich rip off.
Things went downhill quickly from there.
Sure enough, someone tipped Hitler off about the copyright infringement and he pitched a fit.See for yourself:
Hitler discovers Obama Stole His Theme Song. Warning: strong language and harsh images.
As if that weren’t bad enough, then we find out that the new WTF slogan also has ties to Marxism and socialism. I’m not seeing how this is a WINNING strategy.
At best it’s confusing. Are we going with the little children’s propaganda and snitching Brown Shirt squad?
Or for the more advanced cultural revolution of the Marxist’s Red Guard that requires the integration of arts, culture and governance?
Meanwhile, I’m auditioning some additional campaign slogans, just in case there’s more blowback on our “Forward” theme.
So far my favorite contender is “The Preezy and the Meezy say eat your peasy.”
I think that accurately captures the sentiment, butt I’m not sure it meets our new requirement for brevity.
