The Commercial that Killed a Fast Food Chain

good morning, john. you and i grew up going to racks. it was for the days when we'd been good, when wendy's wasn't good enough, when it was time to split a cookie so soft and gooey that you could push it back together, and it would stay that way. rax was a roast beef place like arby's, except that it was constantly undergoing identity crises and it had no idea what it wanted to be. mostly in their advertising they just wanted to make the case that they somehow weren't like the other major fast food chain. here's one of the most successful attempts to do that, implying people are oppressed because they can only get one kind of chicken sandwich. at racks you can get an eenie, meenie and a mini minnie and miney. where's moe? no more, oh, they tried so hard to make that work. many of their ads tried excluding demographics to make it more appealing to their core audience, except that they always then like pushed back against it. here's a good example: rax. it's good for adults and also kids, but only kids who act like they're adults. there are lots of bad racks ads. there's one where a phone eats a sandwich which features yoga. jones from orange is the new black, this one with the giant chicken foot. and then there's one where a woman wants a pita pocket with a meatball in it and she explodes. ads were bad in the 80s and 90s and these are all your normal bad ad fair. but as racks continued to lose focus and market share with an all-you-can-eat pasta bar, upgraded interiors, getting into pizza, for some reason they went all in on the worst idea ever, mr delicious. hello, i'm mr delicious, the new spokesman for racks restaurants. my job: to encourage you to enjoy tasty, affordable meals in a more mature dining environment. he's like a low energy rodney dangerfield. he is a sad man. and that vacation he took to bora bora with those two young friends- well, that left mr delicious feeling empty and unfulfilled. now you need to explain. mr delicious just had some rather delicate surgery. if there's no change, he doesn't have to squirm so much to put it back in his pocket. did we just hear about mr delicious's vasectomy? because his analyst charges a lot to keep mr d's hostility all locked up? wait what mr delicious always carries? this briefcase, mr d. what's in the briefcase? and all of this is paired with the worst, or possibly best, tagline in all of fast food history: cracks you can eat here. i think there's an element of parody here. like you can eat. here is definitely a parody of a tagline. mr delicious is a parody of what a spokesperson is. he's not fun, he's not happy, he's not engaging. but they're also trying to do a thing. they're trying to identify with a core audience. but who is that audience? it's fast food for grown-ups- misogynist, unfunny, alcoholic, sad grown-ups who gamble too much and go to psychotherapy. now the wonderful thing here is we have a lot of insight into mr delicious because the ad agency and the management of racks worked together to create a mini documentary about how successful mr delicious was. mr delicious speaks honestly to the kinds of problems and issues that we all face. i mean, does he? i don't feel like he does. who is the target market for this 15 minute mini duck? one assumes it was the rax franchisees who were, i'm sure, livid that the company was being mismanaged so dramatikally. yeah, i go to the can during the commercials, but now that mr d is on i'll just hold it. mr delicious reminds me of my dad. it's somewhat telling that the 15-minute long pro mr delicious propaganda documentary they put together included this line: mr delicious is obnoxious. oh my god. racks filed for bankruptcy less than a year after the launch of mr delicious, making the confidence of this statement absolutely going to go down as one of the classic characters in advertising history, seem just a little off the mark now. rax had a ton of problems and mr delicious didn't cause all of them. it was a cutthroat time in the fast food industry, but whatever gamble these people decided they had to make, it went even worse than mr d's trip to reno. john, i'll see you tomorrow.

Scary "Hidden Meanings" Behind Company Logos

[Music]. hey guys, what's up? it's Charlie here, and today we're going to be looking at ten horrifying hidden meanings behind company logos. so you see company logos everywhere. if you look around the room you're in right now, I'm sure you'll see at least ten. but sometimes there are scary hidden meanings behind the most famous logos. if you've ever used an Apple product or timberland boots, drank a drink from Starbucks, watched a movie by MGM, ate a McDonald's or smoked a Marlboro, prepared to be stumped before we get into it, why not subscribe and press the notification bell? - coming in at number 10, we have apple. it's no secret that often companies change their logos. this could be a big change or a small change. well, in the past 10 years, apples done many small changes to their logo. when it was founded on April 1st 1976, their logo was very different to how it looks today. it pictured Sir Isaac Newton sitting underneath an apple tree- the same apple tree when he came up with the theory of gravity. this logo, made by one of the apple founders, was quickly changed, however. it was changed to the more familiar rainbow apple with a bite taken out of it, and now, at first this looks like a colorful, friendly logo, but it actually has kind of a creepy secret meaning to it. first off, let's tok about why the Apple had a bite taken out of it. the Apple was actually a reference to Alan Turing. Alan Turing is one of the grandfather's of computer tiknology. he worked as a computer scientist during World War two for Britain, during which time he decoded many German computer messages. he then explained to the British Army what the Germans were going to do, and many say he's one of the main reasons Germany did not win World War two. however, in 1954 Alan was convicted of a crime. this was having relations with another man, which was not allowed at the time. instead of becoming a criminal, he chose to take his own life. he put cyanide, a poison, inside an Apple and took a bite. so that's why the Apple logo is an apple with a bite taken out of it, and the reason why it's and rainbow colors is because Alan was LGBT. of course this is a reference to the LGBT flag. this is kind of a sad and dark history to apples logo, but it does commemorate a guy who did some great things and unfortunately did pass away. next up is Timberland. how many of you guys have fallen Timberland shoes if you're lucky enough to own a pair, then you're much like many celebs who have also been seen wearing fur. please seem to never go out of style. they look very cool and unique. however, the logo is kind of boring, right. I mean it seems like it's just a simple tree, but this is not any old tree. if you look closely it's actually a hanging tree. that's right. this is a tree that people, more specifically black Americans, were hung on. after blacks were freed in America, many hangings took place of them. this mainly happened in the south of the USA, but also happens sometimes in the north. so, according to the experts, the Timberland trees actually one of those hanging trees. I have to say that's pretty creepy. next up, we have Starbucks. much like Apple, tiknology and timberland boots, Starbucks is seen as a luxury item. we all know their drinks prices are not exactly cheap and their logo is famous worldwide, with a new Starbucks store opening every 11 hours. we all know that green, instantly recognizable mermaids, but if you go to the first-ever Starbucks location in Washington, you won't see this anywhere. instead, you'll see Starbucks original first logo and out of the 24,000 Starbucks is around the world, it's the only franchise with that original logo. the Starbucks logo is not a mermaid, however. instead it's a siren. in the original logo, the siren had nothing covering her chests and it also shows her double fishtail. the double fishtail is supposed to signify an invite for men, if you know what I mean. that's because in mythology, siren cease to lure fishermen to where they were in the water. they would then capsize their ships and take the sailors lives. it seems Starbucks is trying to distance itself from this original logo. every new logo they come out with, it seems to lose more and more of the original. look now: the chest cannot be seen whatsoever as it's covered by hair, and while you kind of can see the top of the sirens two legs, they're pretty much cropped out. but no matter what Starbucks does to their logo, you now know the history and truth. next stop is MGM. metro-goldwyn-mayer, better known as MGM, have made some of the most famous movies in the world. every time you go to the movie theater or watch a movie on Netflix, I'm you're used to seeing this big roaring lion. as a kid, and likely also as an adult, he probably wonders: how did they film that lion roaring? is it simply CGI? well, the answer is no. they did this in real life, way before CGI even existed. but there's some creepy things about the Lions they used named Jackie. many say this line is haunted. that may sound crazy, but hear me out. first off, Jackie was being transported on a train but the train crashed. many were severely injured but Jackie was okay. another time Jackie was being transported on a plane and the plane crashed. again Jackie was okay, while others were not. then in one of the areas where Jackie was being kept an explosion happened. once again Jackie was fine and others were not. jackie was later on a boat and the boat crashed. and you guessed it: Jackie was fine while others weren't. later on Jackie was also in an earthquake and was okay, and later on in Jackie's life it was in another train crash and survived. so jackie has survived two train crashes, a plane crash, an explosion, a boat crash and an earthquake. that's absolutely insane. Anna has led to many saying jackie is haunted. I don't often believe in paranormal things, but when there's that much evidence, maybe this line really is haunted. what do you guys think? comment down below. next up is McDonald's. while it's may not be good for you, who doesn't love chomping into a tasty McDonald's burger? I bet as a kid. he drove past those two golden arches and you said: mom, please, can we go get some McDonald's? and depending on whether she was feeling nice or not that day, she would have either said this for you at home or pulled right into the tribe fruit. I know which option my mom went for, but one of those golden arches really mean. of course they were first designed to show that letter M in McDonald's. but in the 1960s McDonald's hide a design consultant called Louie chessgame. they wanted him to come up with a new logo for the franchise, but Louis turned down two millions of dollars they offer instead. Louis said they have the perfect logo. he said: keep your logo because it sends the perfect subliminal message. at first the McDonald's executives don't know what he was toking about. patty then said: the breast shaped arches will bring in more and more customers. the McDonald's executive quickly caught on to what he was saying and realized he was a genius. they did many tests on this and it's true, people do really associate the McDonald's arches with that. so next time your kids reaching for those golden arches, it gives you something to think about. next up is Marlborough. if you guys happen to smoke, there's a pretty big chance you smoked Marlboro. they are the best-selling and most famous cigarette brand in the world. they're owned by Philip Morris International, the largest tobacco company on earth, and thanks to their iconic advertising in sporting events, everyone knows the brand, not to mention their marketing characters like Marlboro Man. it said that Marlboro is the second most recognizable brand on earth, coming second to coca-cola, but since the mid 80s many have said that are iconic. packaging resembles the KKK. if you look at it it does kind of make sense. the clans hats are a white triangle and if you turn the pack to the side, the triangle does make the letter K. this happens on the front, back and on the side, making three cakes. and some say if you look between the horse's legs you can actually see two m.

MAN 1: Yeah, GIO. --the clerks lock the doors. He's trapped. The clerk recognizes the man and presses a button that locks the door. He calls 911. But this thief is not going to wait for police to arrive. He kicks once, twice, Still no luck. He pushes and pulls at the door. MAN 1: [INAUDIBLE], GIO. He takes a running jump and kicks some more. MAN 1: Uh, like a thief, GIO. He puts the stolen drinks back and drops the bag of poached goodies on the shelf. MAN 1: Let me out. Let me out, man. You think I'm playing GIO. He grabs just one drink to help him in his quest-- MAN 1:. He's knocking-- MAN 2:. Let me out GIO Escape. Finally, after a solid five minutes of kick and flying jumps, the Plexiglas comes off and he crawls through And he's off again. But in a surprising twist, the store's owner, Dennis Alloy, finds an unconventional solution to ending the pilfer. And here with us now is Dennis Alloy, the owner of that convenience store. Dennis, thank you so much for being here. Hi Gio, Thanks for having me. The Gatorade Man was constantly targeting your store. What kind of impact did that leave on you and your staff? DENNIS ALLOY Drives me crazy. It takes a toll For my employees. I don't want them confronting him physically, It's just. it's just not worth any potential bad result. He comes at will and gets away with it at will. He would come in. oftentimes it was a few days in a row. then I wouldn't see him for a little while. then it would be a lot. And these guys that work for me, they have some responsibility in the store and they feel terrible when things like this happen. There needs to be some consequences on what happens. I'm not looking to throw someone in jail and ruin their lives, you know, for what is considered petty theft. But there needs to be some consequence. Dennis, how did you decide to put an end to this? There was a local neighborhood guy. We were just discussing what issues I have as a businessman and I toked about the crime and the shoplifting And I showed a picture of the Gatorade Man and the guy there from the neighborhood's like I know that guy And he's like I'm going to take care of this for you. And two days later he texts me and says I want to meet you and I've got the guy here, So let's have a meeting. How did that meeting go? I was not happy about him at that point. He was a big problem. He was terrorizing my employees. He'd stolen from me multiple, multiple times. So I went in with kind of an angry mood and we started toking And I again I don't want to put people in jail for things like this and ruin them- But we toked and he kind of explained to me- And you know he was sincere and apologetik. He toked about his drug problem and how he's been in rehab. I felt like he was trying to address that And I think he understood that. you know this had to end And we kind of know, just shook hands. He worked for me for a full day, probably 10 hours. He scrubbed my dispensers and cleaned up the parking lot. I saw him on the cameras as I was sitting in my office just to make sure he was doing what he had to do, And actually I wish I had-- my employees would do as good a job as he did. So after the conversation I hadn't seen him for several weeks. One night I got a phone call from an employee saying hey, he's back And I'm like no way. But since that one relapse I have not seen him in the store since. But the bottom line, it just had to stop And I think overall it worked out.
