Marketing Bloopers of the Week

whoops

Sometimes when ads get translated, the new meaning isn’t the one the advertiser wanted. Here are 5 examples:

Perdue Chicken ran a campaign, “It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken.” When translated into Spanish, it became “It takes a tough man to make a chicken aroused.”

When Scandinavian vacuum maker Electrolux translated their campaign into English, it became “Nothing sucks like an Electrolux.”

KFC was “finger-linkin’ good” except in China where the campaign was translated as “eat your fingers off.”

Schweppes Tonic Water translated into Italian as Schweppes Toilet Water.

Chevrolet decided to market the Chevy Nova heavily in Mexico. Unfortunately, in Mexican “Nova” means “doesn’t go.”
