Mock focus groups- Surfers that do nothing (and are good at it!)

Mock focus groups- Surfers that do nothing

Like “Dude” this is totally awesome!  I can’t imagine if this mock focus groups were real!  I think it was a brilliant, and hilarious, move by Sony to demonstrate how non-savvy consumers can “look smart” by using their product.  Sadly I’ve actually watched a focus group that was very similar to these guys.  Kind of a cross between them and the Failed Rockers.  Does it scare anyone that they vote?  LOL.  Hopefully they don’t marry the Models or we are doomed!  And just imagine when these guys are Seniors.  :0  Thankfully we have the Toddlers as potential for the future.

Driving in the South can be a challenge! Here’s a real sign near Athens, GA

Driving in the South

Those of you who’ve driven around in the South will appreciate the below highway sign.  Imagine cruising up on this sign doing about 80 (if you go slower you’ll be run off the road) and trying to figure out what road you’re supposed to take.  I lived there for 2 years and I still can’t make heads or tails out of this sign.  LOL

Driving in the South

Yep driving in the south will definitely keep you on your toes!

If you appreciate the above sign, this book might be of interest to you.

Photoshop-fun on Georgia recording for the blind and dyslexic

While getting my masters in Market Research in Athens, GA I found this building labeled “Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic.”   I couldn’t resist and did a bit of Photo-shopping.  Can you see my edit?  LOL

I’m not blind, but I am dyslexic and I hope others don’t take offence at my jkoe.  Life is too short and we all need to be able to laugh a little.

Mock focus groups- Models & Smartphones; which one is smarter?

Mock Focus Groups – Models

These mock focus groups were done brilliantly however, if you’ve ever participated/conducted a focus group you’ll be able to relate to some of the comments.  Let’s just say, often you’ll pull in some of the sharp knives and some that make butter-knives look like razor blades.  I think the Toddlers were one step above them but would put them on-par with the Failed Rockers and Guidos but ahead of the Surfers.

The “moderator” should get an Oscar for his “blank stare” reaction to some of the comments.  I must admit I’ve been there!  Trust me when I say you’re going to LOL thru this video!
