As a small airline mocked Sepp Blatter (6 photos)

The South African budget airline called "Kulula Airlines" demonstrated how the Streisand Effect in action. This effect is that the dissemination of information on the Internet is increasing in proportion to the measures taken for its removal. The effect is named after the great Barbra Streisand, which was quite a backlash to its insistence on the requirement to remove the photo of her house with one of the sites. Because the plaintiff's name, photograph went for a walk on the network, visiting hundreds of websites.


In 2010, a little low-budget airline wanted to use a grand event - the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. To do this, she released a poster to advertise their services under the title "The unofficial national airline," you know what. " As you can see, marketers airlines tried to bypass all restrictions on sponsoring the 2010 World Cup. However, receptive to the "parasitic marketing" FIFA immediately demanded to remove the poster and do not advertise their services in a way because, allegedly, it was shown the official emblem of the 2010 World Cup: the state flag of South Africa soccer balls with the logo of FIFA, the figure football, football stadium in Cape Town, vuvuzela. Indeed, if you look closely, you can easily associate the campaign with a football championship.

And how came the airline? She did not deny it for a long time and lead a useless and tedious correspondence with FIFA. Fulfilling the requirements of FIFA and the airline removed the poster (numbered under his №1), and instead, immediately released a new poster (№2). As you can see, the poster №2 almost like a poster №1. However, elements of the painting that have excited FIFA officials have been replaced by other elements on the poster were given a comprehensive explanation of each of them. Thus, the national flag was named the "beach towel" vuvuzela called "Stand for golf balls" (because they have similar features), instead of the stadium - a set of local bridge (napomnayuschego similarity of one of the World Cup stadiums), etc. For clarity, I have prepared a poster №2 with the translation of these inscriptions explaining.


In short, marketers airlines on all cylinders mocked FIFA and have left no chance for fault-finding on her part.

Moreover, soon it was released poster №3, which read about the super-predostavkenii offers Sepp Blatter (lawyers airline figured out that the phrase "Sepp Blatter" is not an official word of the 2010 World Cup). Bullying, in a word, on the FIFA reached a new level!


On offer poster №3 not said FIFA president Sepp Blatter, and one of the residents of Cape Town, which zaholtel squeeze into an invisible war between FIFA and the airline "Kulula." He renamed his dog, a Boston Terrier, in a new name, "Sepp Blatter," and demanded to serve the dog under the provisions of the new advertising campaign. That is, free to fly within the country without restriction on the number of flights. Airline generously agreed to such a requirement and the bouncer did not lose face in front of their clients before the big football event.

Moreover, marketers airlines losing a beat in their favor. Immediately released poster №4, bold letters that read: "Now it is precisely officially! Sepp Blatter flying aircraft of our airline! ".

Standing ovation marketers airline!



We must pay tribute to the marketing service of the airline. Many experts admit that the airline as one of the "Funny" companies in the world. Everyone aboard the airline company painted green, and across the board displayed outside the line, which briefly and clearly explain that there is a plane. Place the main seat of the pilot is referred to as «The Big Cheese - Captain, my Captain!» (Big shot - the captain, my captain there!). There is even a signpost: «secret agent code». The rest you can see for yourself from the following picture:
