“I’m a Mormon” campaign prompts copycat ads

I'm a Mormon

As the ongoing campaign expands to Brisbane and beyond, it’s also earning flattery along the way as mimics come out to play.

I’m a Muppet.org

I’m a bear, I love to tell jokes, and… I’m a muppet.

BEAT DRUM! CHASE GIRL… AM MUPPET!

Meeeh mee mee me mee. Me meee mee me! Me me Memmeeee.

ME MUPPET!

I’m a marmot.org

And let’s also not forget–let’s not forget, Dude–that keeping wildlife, an amphibious rodent, for uh, domestic, you know, within the city– that isn’t legal either.

Happy Thanksgiving!

P.S. Some light holiday reading:

Its a known fact in advertising circles that only idiots click on ads.

Think mockery doesn’t work? Think again.

P.P.S. And some silly holiday YouTube fun:

I’m a large ground squirrel, a veteran screen (over)actor, and yes, I’m a Marmot.

Hey, I’m a Muppet.

P.P.P.S. Seriously, though, the Mormons aren’t doing religion any favors with this prt–parodier ad campaign.

    Hey, if we’re somehow helping the Mormons to win some nine-dimensional chess game that’s all about getting everybody to lighten up and enjoy co-existence, consider me a willing dupe. ;-)

    Re the MDL, I’m certain that we own that name change. I’m also certain that their new name was a direct rip-off of Mormon Expression Voices. Funny how that works, eh?

    [...] publicity campaign (which, despite showcasing diversity, on a meta-level gives kind of a culty vibe). So, has the CoJCoL-dS thanked her for it, or given her any kind of positive recognition for [...]
