The Final "Absolute Exclusive" Post Ever.

Posted by - 10:24 PM on 04/28/14
Weird announcement to have to make ... but, I just got word that a certain vodka company didn't like the name "ABSOLUTExclusive" and so we're going to have to change it. Seriously. I think it's hilariously stupid, but ... not my call. I spent a few seconds debating if we should just go with something like "GREYGOOSExclusives" or maybe go with a whiskey brand? Since it's obviously alcohol related. Maybe all go buy these shirts in protest? In the end I talked to staff and we decided to just call the section "exclusives." So, we'll be making those changes shortly where we can and I'll be buying my vodka from companies that don't have more money and lawyers than common sense.

So ridiculous. Can they complain about anybody who uses the word "absolute" in anything?

AbsolutExclusives always reminded me of that particular vodka company. Stupid or not, I guess a brand is a brand.

I thought this was stupid and then I realized it was spelled Absolut Exclusives. Still stupid, but it makes a little more sense.

When we talked about it amongst ourselves, I (and others) decided we hated it and kinda think adding "absolute" in front of everything is sort dumb.

It's like McDonalds always needing to make things the McShit or the McObesity ... just kinda over all that way of branding nonsense.
