Yesterday, we had a Candie's Spring 2010 meeting where everyone presented slides of possible Candie's ad ideas for the upcoming shoot. When we walked into the conference room, there was assorted candy spread out in a straight line across the table on white plastic plates. There were red hots, cherry o's, gummy bears, huge Double Bubble gum balls, spiraled Twizzlers, bubble gum Pop Rocks, and an unknown candy that looked like contraceptives in pastel colors. This candy tasted like styrofoam and had strange tiny colored balls inside of it. No one in the conferece room could finish one to tell you what it was. However, the bubble gum Pop Rocks seemed to have been the biggest hit. I still have a pack sitting in my purse and still remain curious to how they will work.
Amongst the slides were very fun ideas. While someone was presenting, there was an idea of having the same bedroom with four different scenarios in four consecutive nights in one picture. In one of the pictures, there was a trashy Christmas celebration going on. Someone then pointed out the black santa and the majority of the room couldn't spot him. We then noticed that he was slumped in a chair in the corner, with a bottle of liquor in his hands, resting on his big belly. "Now that's a real black Santa," said Ev, the Senior Marketing Manager. The entire room had a great laugh, and that just goes to show one of the many reasons why I love Iconix. And Ev.
TGIFF!! (Thank God It's Fashionieceta Friday). I'll be returning to the island tonight to keep it easy and have some family time at the Fashionaunta Zoo, aka home. I'm very much looking forward to a relaxing night, and sleeping in tomorrow morning.
Until next time..
