Shrek's new "Slogan"#1
Posted: 5/31/08 at 1:22pm
Shrek's new "Slogan" is "Bringing Ugly Back." I think it is kind-of distasteful. Thoughts?

I mean I understand that they were trying to play off of Timberlake's SexyBack, but really? And it is just not good at all.

It's a fine slogan. Not the best one but it's fine.

What's the big deal?

I didn't know Timberlake was the end-all/be-all of pop culture. I dont think the slogan will carry over to the fall. I mean, I didn't even recognize the reference until lake pointed it out.

I kind of agree with Too Darn Hot. I get the point they're trying to make...don't know how audiences will react to it. Hopefully they'll understand too.

Don't get me wrong, I do hope it will be great, but as Harrison Ford say in every Indiana Jones film "I have a bad feeling about this."

I like the casting choices. I would see it regardless of how crappy the slogan is.

Too bad I can't afford tickets. Oops.

He's a faker, and you've been taken in by his con. And in doing so, you are enabling him. He is doing more damage to aspergers than papa's words ever could. -Chane/Liverpool on me having asperger syndrome.
