fire (tries to) meets desire (but actually meets a lot of crap...

Acabo de ler um post sobre um perfume diferente...

"the scent of seduction with a hint of flamed-grilled meat"



Quem me conhece ja deve estar a adivinhar o seguinte:
-"Isso faz-me lembrar um episodio do Seinfeld!"


Pois faz.


O Kramer ja tinha tido uma ideia deste calibre ha... 17 anos.
Na serie Seinfeld, o famoso Kramer foi ter com a Calvin Klein e contou-lhe a sua brilhante ideia.

Um perfume chamado "The beach" que te deixava a cheira como se "you first come home from the beach". Ou seja...como cheiras depois de vir da praia.
Isto era nonsence mas...tinha muito mais futuro que esta ideia!


E pensar que os perfumes Bic nao vingaram por se associar a algo barato e descartavel...

tss tss... la andam os "artistas" a reinventar uma ideia de merda para a tornarem numa ideia de merda com estilo.

KRAMER: You know I got a great idea for a cologne. The Beach. You spray it on and you smell like you just came home from the beach

JERRY: Hum, a cologne that smells like the beach. I can't believe I'm saying this, "That's not a bad idea."

KRAMER: Tell me about it!

JERRY: Why don't you call Steve D'Jiff, he works in the marketing department at Calvin Klein.

[CALVIN KLEIN]

KRAMER: Go ahead smell, smell

STEVE: Yeah, so?

KRAMER: Do you recognize it? ... The beach.

STEVE: What are you talking about?

KRAMER: Oh, I'm talking about the beach.

STEVE: What about it?

KRAMER: You know the way you smell when you first come home from the beach?

Well, I want to make a cologne that captures the essence of that smell.

Oh yeah.

STEVE: That is the dumbest idea I have ever heard.

KRAMER: Oh, wait, Did you here what I just said?

STEVE: Do you think people are going to pay $80 a bottle to smell like dead

fish and sea weed? That's why people take showers when the come

home from the beach. It's an objectionable offensive odour.

KRAMER: So you don't think it's a good idea?

in Season 3, Episode 14: The Pez Dispenser
Uma serie depois a Calvin Klein lancaria o seu novo produto "The Ocean"...

...On episode No. 144 "The Nap" Kramer invented a mattress filled with sand that felt "like sleeping on a beach."

Aromas e Sabores de disse...

Olá...

Encontrei o teu blog no blog "Tuga em Londres" e queria pedir-te um favor.

Há algum tempo atrás criei uma loja online com produtos tipicamente portugueses. Aqui podes encontrar Ovos Moles, Ginginha, Muralhas, Licor Beirão, Queijadas de Sintra etc etc etc

Será que te posso pedir para divulgares esta loja junto dos emigrantes portugueses e/ou se possível no teu blog?

O endereço é www.aromasesaboresdeportugal.pt

Cumprimentos
