10 Yetis Examples of Good and Bad PR- Tuesday 10th January 2017

Happy Tuesday everybody! As if we are already in the double digits of January – Christmas seems but at distant memory at this point, am I right? Anyway here is your good and bad PR for today.

Good PR

Sometimes, when a brands twitter account gives as good banter as it receives, it can be a thing of pure joy.

Morrisons have, without a doubt, succeeded in the banter stakes this week, after some hilarious exchanges with one customer on the topic of doughnuts.

That’s right, doughnuts.

Twitter user Silverfox jokingly tweeted the supermarket after realising that the doughnuts he purchased were hole-less, and therefore he couldn’t engage in a certain sex act with his girlfriend. I won’t into much further detail here on the blog (it’s a bit NSFW), but I would recommend looking up the conversation if you fancy a couple of hot onion-ring related lols.

Someone give that Morrisons customer service team member a pay rise immediately!

Bad PR

I had to do a bit of a double take when I saw this story online this morning, as it just totally baffles me that a company could get to the point of putting a product on the market without realising the MASSIVE error.

Let me explain………

A reddit post has been attracting plenty of attention from users after one user uploaded a description of his ‘Polar Fox Boots’ where the tread patterns on the soles of the boots seem to leave a trail of tiny swastikas wherever the owner walks.

The thread, unsurprisingly, attracted a whole host of bad-taste jokes and puns, with many now questioning whether the owner of the Polar Fox Boots had decided to send back the unfortunate footwear, or if he’d decided to keep his arguably offensive shoes.

I have worked at 10 Yetis for the past two years since graduating University with a degree in Public Relations. I love being a Yeti, the friends I have made, and the fact that no two days are ever the same. Clients I have achieved some of my best work for include Optical Express, holidaycottages.co.uk, UK Paintball and ShagAtUni.com.
