What the Duck!!!!

Dear All.
The comments section is for people above the age of 18.
Thanks.
Yesterday me and Tulllu went to see the hockey match and there was this guy standing in front of us wearing a jacket. On the first look it would look like "Adidas-The Brand with Three Stripes" but actually this is a new brand started in the dark dungeons of Madras- "the Brand with Four Stripes and is called "ddibds". Me and Tulllu looked at each other and "Gave Up".
Another thing I recall is that one friend of mine had a jeans branded "CASIO". We used to bug him, "Hey we all knew that CASIO makes jeans, do they also manufacture electronic goods now??" ;-)
Its sometimes fun when you go to these small small road side shops and find a good Reebok shoes untill you walk close to it and find it is actually "Recdock". Has happened to me and I asked "What is this??". The shop keeper replied "Reebok has now decided to bring in shoes with this brand in India". I did the vanishing act.
Beware of people who cheat you.
UPDATE: Saarang is back!!! Yahoooooooo!! Site launched few days back!!! Click for more here.

Hobbit & Kini>> SHUT UP!!!

the ghost of kicks...
don't listen to the talks...

now it is some kung fu time... will give left right center to both of you...

ABiasForAction 9:38 AM, December 14, 2005  

Virdi,
This is simply a different type of branding which is based on Brand Similarity rather than Brand Differentiator. When you take on a similar name, you are trying to inherit some of its properties.

Secondly the Adidas and Reebok of the world simply stick their labels and do some quality check before importing goods from low cost countries.

If the person is not particularly brand-concious ddibds is as good as addidas for him. Afterall A T-Shirt is not a multi-functional item.

Hobbit,  10:13 AM, December 14, 2005  

//Afterall A T-Shirt is not a multi-functional item.//

am sure you are right but then what the point of earning? please dont say charity! :-)

also, same logic applies to food. If its just to stave off hunger, why have gourmet restaurants? or are you against food tasting good as well? :-)

virdi 10:15 AM, December 14, 2005  

Abias>> arre bhai Anirban!!! i just said something about cheats and you gave me all the marketing funde... I didnt like Kotler either and I hate Marketing funde... :-)

Blogging is my masti marofy timepass with gyan only on girls and not marketing... ;-)

virdi 10:18 AM, December 14, 2005  

Hobbit>> who wrote this comment??? who wrote??? someone else is writing coments under Hobbit's name...

Hobbit,  10:22 AM, December 14, 2005  

bloody hell you are right Gurl! who wrote that comment! certainly not me!!! :-)

Hobbit,  10:38 AM, December 14, 2005

ABiasForAction 10:46 AM, December 14, 2005  

Virdi,
It was an unintentional outburst of fundas.Perhaps I am also on the path on being an intellectual, thats my ultimate goal you know.
Your gyan on gals is simply superb.I am planning on plagarizing and selling it as a primer under a pseudo name 'Vdiri'.Where were you and your blog when I actaully need that advice( about 6 years ago)
