Over the years, I’ve been fascinated by a number of very successful advertising campaigns. I remember as a boy watching Joe Namath and Mohamed Ali promoting Brut, by Faberge’. Remember the great smell of Brut and the punch of Ali? Of course, I drank Tang, just because the astronauts did. I grew up knowing that Starkist doesn’t want tuna with good taste, they want tuna that taste good. How many of you watch the Super Bowl, just for the ads?
An advertising campaign that has caught my attention over the last few years has been the Dos Equis ads featuring the most interesting man in the world. You’ve all noticed him, I’m sure. You know, he’s the guy who lives vicariously, through himself. He bowls overhand. In museums, he is allowed to touch the art. Roses stop to smell him. He has taught old dogs a variety of new tricks. After all, he is the most interesting man in the world.
We are hoping to see you all at the Farwest Show coming up in two weeks, where we will show you once again that Little Prince is the most interesting nursery in the world! Ryan and I have created another spectacular booth and we can hardly wait for you to see it. You can register for the show HERE using the code 7432 and you’ll have free show admission compliments of Little Prince. But it’s not just our Farwest booth that make us the most interesting nursery in the world. He are my top 10 reasons why.
- When we put our frog logo on a new truck, it increases in value.
- If we were to mail an invoice without postage, It would still get there.
- We’ve won the OAN’s lifetime achievement award for our Farwest booth… three times.
- Our competitors list OUR phone number on their website.
- Lloyd Traven is jealous of our sedum beards.
- Plant collectors beg us to take cuttings from their gardens
- We all speak fluent Spanish, in Russian.
- Every time we go for a swim in the Willamette to check our dock, dolphins appear.
- Aphids refuse to enter the nursery, simply out of respect.
- Renowned archaeologists fight over our recycled pots.
So there you have it. Little Prince of Oregon, the most interesting nursery in the world!
Keep Planting, My Friends!
