Monday Funday: Bodypro, Cap’n Crunch and John West

Monday Funday is our weekly roundup of humourous marketing content, designed to give you a little pick-me-up so you’re ready to face the wearisome week ahead. Prepare to be edutained!

The truth!

In what is fast becoming a semi-regular feature, Bodypro is this week’s ‘Hilarious hygiene or toiletry brand of the week’ – (we might think of a catchier name for it at a later date). Hot on the heels of our posts about Hello Flo and Dollar Shave Club, here’s Bodypro’s response to a snidey Facebook post that bemoaned the use of ‘misleading’ imagery in its commercials. Delivered deadpan by the ‘CEO’ of Bodypro, it’s a fantastic example of brands biting back with a bit of satire.

Ahoy there, me hearties, thar be laughs on the horizon!

Comedy Twitter accounts aren’t hard to come by – there’s a seemingly unending stream of parody accounts, a number of profane animals and virtually every stand-up comedian regularly takes to the ‘Twittersphere’ to let fly with their best bon mots – the site is a veritable smorgasbord of Twitters at which to titter. Nevertheless, it’s still cool when a brand brings the funny on social – none more so than Cap’n Crunch, the mascot of the eponymously titled American breakfast cereal.

Forget man bites dog, try ‘man kicks bear in the nuts’. Classic stuff from John West.
