the twist: je ne sais quoi

2011 the year of the flood, tornado, earthquake, terrorist, the unexpected and the inevitable…and yes, people are flocking to a small town in southwestern france to await the end of the world in 2012.  the lucky town is burarach.  it is a small village with a population of less than 200 under the mountain pic de burarach.  so you’re thinking some survival kit, i’m thinking wine survival ..hey it’s france after all…with some of the finest vineyards in the world. 

more twists:   the grigio 4-piece wine set is a classic way to carry around all the wine survival tools you will need for 2012 and beyond.  the dark, mysterious spray rubber wine bottle case includes a waiter corkscrew, pour/stopper combination and a drip ring.  and just in case all the end of the worlders have to return home to the usa, the set meets fda requirements.  but just in case it all ends, and archeologists find your bottle, your logo will be on display for posterity.  now that’s a win win. 

do the twist:  at creative-crossroads we create lifestyle promotions for all of your events.  whether you are showing up in france for the end of the world, or planning the next international conference,  add  some  je ne sais quoi to your promotional products.   always creative,  bon appetit, always promotional,  bon buvons…world without end…creative-crossroads.


the twist: the butterscotch blues

Lately the news has been; well the news.  After I ferried my tax returns to the irs, remembered the 98th anniversary of the sinking of the titanic, and watched the top blow off the icelandic volcano,  my favorite ice cream place confirmed that butterscotch topping was discontinued nationwide. wait what… i immediately contacted my news source in the big apple, and it’s true. just when you needed some butterscotch and comfort watching thousands stranded at airports.  can we say…survival.  being the optimist let me offer some promotional hope.

do the twist:  the traveler’s survival kit

 features a number of useful props.

  1.  a comb, so you don’t look like a crazed person at the ticket counter
  2.  antibacterial wipes,  for the cut you gave yourself when banging on the  ticket counter
  3. bandages, for the same cut
  4. toothbrush and paste,  hoping that clean breath will get you on the next flight
  5. tissues, when your hotness and clean breath still leave you stranded   

more twists:   I don’t report the news, I just read it…but you can find this kit and many newsworthy promotions at planes, boats, trains, here, there and everywhere (hey Sir Paul) until next week, allow me a moment with my butterscotch blues.
