The Playboy Branding 27 comments

The Inman Branding

Slimstat is indeed an excellent modification with useful additions of Shortstat. I was using it since I run this blog using Textpattern. It is useful in providing us the statistic and even tracking new referrer via RSS. Awesome.

However I miss Shortstat, the original one. I miss Shortstat’s simplicity. I don’t need detail breakdown of today/week. Just a quick snapshot referrer like this.

Maybe, just maybe, if I got 10000 hits in a day someday (I hope soon, amen for that), I will consider my self having a Mint.

Why Mint? Because Mint is based (likely) on Shortstat?
No. Let me rephrase my deduction.

When I’m talking to you about Shortstat, Slimstat, and Mint, what is the first thing pop up in your head?

Shaun Inman, bingo.

Slimstat now shining brightly and it is not because Paul Wettone evangelizes the Slimstat. People tend see Slimstat as “Shaun Inman”. Not “Paul Wettone”.

The Oreo Branding

In this branding bandwagon, we only see “who is the first one who does it well”.

Oreo now has 19 different products (cluttered marketing), but I don’t care either I eat orange flavor Oreo or Chocolate Oreo.

They are all Oreo.
In fact, it is Oreo.

No matter how hard Oreo introduce to us “new flavor”, we eat Oreo in our traditional way: Dicelup, diputar, dijilat.

The Playboy Branding

This is exactly why I stand against Playboy Indonesia.
Playboy Indonesia IS Playboy. It is just a series of parade of big boops blonde-naked women with IQ not over fifteen.

I don’t care if they have Pramudya Ananta Toer.
Playboy Indonesia IS Playboy.

I stand against Playboy Indonesia not because I’m a Moslem.
I think, trying to say that Playboy Indonesia will be different is an obvious attempt to insult our intelligence, sexually.

Iyo, wes moco. isine yo ngunu kuwi, predictable.
Tapi memang strategi sing sip yo ngene, awal’e biasa-biasa. Suwi-suwi umbaran.
Podho koyok wali nyebarno Islam ndhisik, yo ra iso sakjet saknyet. Kudu alon-alon.

Playboy yo podho ae. Oplah besar amargo wes kadung diasosiakan karo Playboy pusat. Nek protes2 iki wes mari, mengko kan yo mirip Playboy pusat.

Franchise ala McD kan yo ngunu. Menune podho “bahan”e bedho. Porno-ne podho, model-e thok ae sing bedho.

It is just a series of parade of big boobs blonde-naked women with IQ not over fifteen.

Rather gender insulting, no? Unfortunately there is no big boobs parade in Indonesian Playboy, at least not in their first edition now. Having newly giving birth Andhara Early does not pump up the volume of vulgarity either. And she’s not blonde

Maybe, just maybe, if I got 10000 hits in a day someday

Soon you will, I guess, having the word Playboy and boobs all over the page, wouldn’t that be a trigger for the hit ? ;-)

To aculturate something controversy, it should be a good stategy to adapt, and evolve later.

Islam did.

And I’m not intend to make this entry as a Google Bomb, whatsoever :)

Nah, itu fakta menarik yang saya baru tahu.

Enda
Substansinya.
Bukannya brand membawa substansi ?

Simbol menjadi bermakna karena kita memberi arti. Seperti Playboy vs Penthouse.
Mungkin isinya jauh lebih vulgar Penthouse, tapi kita keburu kenal Playboy sebagai simbol industri media sex.

Saya amati dari banyak blog (via Technorati Watchlist RSS ), nama Indonesia tercoreng lagi. Dunia luar ga mau tau bahwa tidak ada pose telanjang satupun di Playboy Indonesia, mereka melihatnya Playboy IS Playboy. Playboy is sex brand, selesai.

Fakta bahwa Playboy masuk Indonesia jelas dianggap keajaiban, karena ya pengaruh branding itu.
Let’s face it, salah satu nilai jual yang ditawarkan Playboy Indonesia kan branding.

Mungkin, serupa dengan branding “Enda adalah bapak blog Indonesia”. Semua orang bermarga Nasution yang ngeblog, punya kans besar untuk menghentak . Ini misalnya lho.. hehehe..

kenapa model itu dan upcoming model itu mau ” menjual diri ” mereka?
apa karena brand yang sudah meng-internasional?
dan anehnya mereka bangga!!!
and i agree with It is just a series of parade of big boops blonde-naked women with IQ not over fifteen (in sarcasm way) :D

To acculturate something controversial, it should be a good strategy to adapt, and evolve later

Agreed, as everyone does. We shouldn’t mix their strategy (which is not wrong from marketing point of view) with the content, which some people don’t like. Not their fault, marketingly (does this word exist ?)
As well as it’s not Mc Donald’s fault to accomodate Indonesian’s big big taste in ayam goreng. Maybe one should address the objection to those who release the legal paper for their publication.
Religiously speaking, am not an expert, let alone administratively.
But I was actually commenting the IQ thingy. If they’re fifteen in IQ, I hope you’re not saying that the readers then must be errr … fourteen maximum ?
No offense, I read the Indonesian Playboy too, out of curiousity. I haven’t decided whether to like it or not ;)
The google bomb thing, it’s an effect, not intention.
Geez, I took up the space already. Do apologize for talking too much :
)

I guess I did talk too much that the sentence(s) was crossed by itself (it says 106 years and 5 months ago. Hmm ?)
Anyway, the crossed ones remains as is.
And I do like Strawberry Oreo, or Vanilla.
They taste different.

...IQ over fifteen..
It’s just an expression. Idiom, in Guns N Roses’s Shotgun Blues :D

Enda
Saya sering menemukan nada seperti ini : “Lha wong kartun saja diprotes, masa Playboy kok bisa bebas di Indonesia. Katanya negara mayoritas muslim bla bla bla..”

Ya, over generalisasi memang terjadi :)

Riky
Jika dibandingkan dengan Miyabi ya jelas suxtodemax.

That one is too rude an idiom to me, hehe. Can’t really swallow it peacefully. You know, all these gender sensitivity.

And I heart only November Rain.

Your lovely comments, if you please.
