I love this:
"But a Reebok spokesman insisted that the company was surprised when the occultic meaning of the name Incubus was first brought to management's
attention. "We had no idea," said the spokesman."
Come on, do you realize how in depth they market strategize? All the names that get thrown around the table during brainstorming creative sessions.
I've been in advertising for 21 years. I remember when I was younger I had designed a logo for a company with the name "king", so I used a crown in
the logo and my art director and boss both looked at me and said that "implies the devil". Now, I know they said this based on the number of points
I put on the crown (5, 6, or 7, I don't remember). But they made me redraw it with the correct amount of points. What I'm saying is that even some
small potatoes art company caught a satanic reference in it's logo development. I can't believe no one at Reebok mentioned that Incubus's were
I think they knew.
