50 Of The Worst Advertising Slogans And Taglines That’ll Make You Cringe

4

Both slogans and taglines are very important for a brand’s positioning in the business. They only differ in their scope: a tagline represents an entire business, while a slogan usually only represents a single product or is a part of a particular advertising campaign. Dan Cullen-Shute, chief executive and co-founder of the independent advertising agency, Creature London, says, “We live in a world where brands think they need ‘purpose’.” Brands want their audiences not only to perceive a product but also to connect it with a higher purpose. That’s where slogans and taglines come in – the best ones capture this higher purpose in a memorable way. For example, everyone and their mothers can surely recall Nike’s call to action “Just Do It” or Red Bull’s promise to “give you wings.” However, not all slogans seem to work. Some appear at bad timing – for example, the ad for Ayds – an appetite suppressant – aired a TV commercial along with the slogan “Lose weight deliciously with the aid of Ayds.” Given that the brand’s name sounded phonetically identical to AIDS and that it aired during the epidemic period of the disease… well, I guess you can sort this one out yourselves. Bored Panda has compiled for you a whole list of various brand’s slogans and taglines that are just plain bad, weird or blatantly stupid, so scroll down below to see them all.
