My gran has been buying Lyle's Golden Syrup for god knows how many years. Since before I was born, anyway. Though, technically that stuff lasts forever so I could have just been seeing the same tin over 19 years. Anyway, the point is I've seen that tin so many times, but never once have I noticed that the logo on the front of the tin is infact the rotting corpse of a lion, surrounded by hoards of bees nibbling at his innards.
Golden Syrup is like a sweeter form of treacle. The wiki page says you guys don't get it outside of Louisiana, so I thought i'd be all helpful and stuff.
Has anyone else seen any examples of bad marketing lately? I actually like the dead lion on the front, but I imagine most people wouldn't.
