Those guys over at 4chan were at it again..... made me lol, when will marketing people learn?

The Dub the Dew campaign must have seemed like such a good idea at the time. After all, letting the Internet choose the name for a green-apple infused soft drink is great marketing and helps build brand loyalty, right? What could possibly go wrong?

Here's the whole list: http://i.imgur.com/sIj00.jpg

It was funny to watch 'Tempest' continuously jumping up the list. Goes to show how rigged these contests are...not like it wasn't obvious already.

Wow, what a great extended list. I was so hoping the mountain dew legal team failed and they were legally required to honour the winning name.
