The “non-marketing” of The Apple

A few months ago, during an interesting discussion on Friendfeed, some friends have expressed the following opinion, “Oh no, Apple does not do marketing, not need.” I promptly denied this claim, trying to explain my point of view. This post was born out of that discussion to explain through documents, reports, interviews and data, as Apple does not actually do marketing. Apple is marketing.

THE APPLE IS ALL OVER THE WORLD! I swear, every time I see a movie, you do not know why, I always see a Mac, be it a romantic comedy or an action movie, the cute apple there is always printed on the back of a MacBook or on cold metal back an iPhone. It will be a chance? Yeah … ever heard talk about product placement? Well, I do it and this seems like a clear case of product placement. OK, we make some practical example, just to be realistic. Here is proof of that! Make your opinion by yourselves!

The Dark Side of Grandparent Superheroes

How do superheroes act when they get older? Sacha Goldberger humorously answers that question with his awesome new photo series called The Darks. The two characters in this tale are Dark Mamika and Dark Papouka (you may remember Mamika from Grandma’s Superhero Therapy). Looks like she’s ditched her boyfriend, Mister Papika, for a new man in her life. But watch out….together they’re up to no good!

So what’s this new series about? “The Darks is a series about the dark side everybody has inside of them. I noticed that, with my grandmother, when you get old sometimes this dark side comes out. I asked her if she was ok to make some images about this. I wanted my grandparent superheroes to be naughty, like in real life. Also, I wanted my old superheroes not to be perfect. They are child-like. When you get older, sometime you are act more like a young child than a grown-up.”
