<div class="quote-block">For CBSs Fall Lineup, Check Inside Your Refrigerator<br><br>
By DAVID S. JOACHIM<br><br>
Published: July 17, 2006<br><br><br><br>
IN September, CBS plans to start using a new place to advertise its fall television lineup: your breakfast.<br><br><br><br>
Ads for CBSs shows will be etched on eggs sold at some grocery stores.<br><br><br><br>
The network plans to announce today that it will place laser imprints of its trademark eye insignia, as well as logos for some of its shows, on eggs 35 million of them in September and October. CBSs copywriters are referring to the medium as egg-vertising, hinting at the wordplay they have in store. Some of their planned slogans: CSI (Crack the Case on CBS); The Amazing Race (Scramble to Win on CBS); and Shark (Hard-Boiled Drama.). Variations on the ad for its Monday night lineup of comedy shows include Shelling Out Laughs, Funny Side Up and Leave the Yolks to Us.<br><br><br><br>
George Schweitzer, president of the CBS marketing group, said he was hoping to generate some laughter in American kitchens. Weve gone through every possible sad takeoff on shelling and scrambling and frying, he said, adding, Its a great way to reach people in an unexpected form.<br><br><br><br>
Newspapers, magazines and Web sites are so crowded with ads for entertainment programming that CBS was ready to try something different, Mr. Schweitzer said. The best thing about the egg concept was its intrusiveness.</div>

Probably they'll have ads stamped on the foreheads of supermarket workers so even if you don't buy eggs you'll still see the ads. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

I once heard that people may advertise from giant mirrors that reflect sunlight in outer space so you will see a huge, bright coporate logo in the night sky. 400th post <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
