The Blair Witch Project wasn't that good of a production but the marketing was a genius of an idea to make people want to see it.  My hats off to whoever was behind the marketing.  Great job........

Boy MSN must be having a slow news day if this beats them trying to promote the new xbox or attack gun owners.

Great tips! I really enjoyed reading these because my products aren't typically allowed to be advertised in mainstream media. my funny cook-books and spice blends are a bit 'off color" and so people either think they are hilarious or get offended by them.  I would love to hear if any of you have any ideas on how I can get the word out.  If you have a good sense of humor you can find them by googling "Whipped & Beaten Culinary"... Would love to hear all your ideas.

All tattoos should be temporary.  In 5 years most will be wishing they were.  Girls should never get them, they are intune to fashions and change is inevitable...tattoos don't go away with the change of fads.

The Blair Witch project made publicity because people were know to vomit, but that was because the wild motion and use of close-up shotw that made people experience motion-sickness.
