The Logic Breathing Life Into Oreo’s New Branding

I like to think of branding as breathing. It is taking in cultural meanings and giving them off. Inhale, exhale — but in this case the stuff of respiration is not air but culture. Culture in, culture out. (There’s no point of joining a conversation unless you’ve got something to say.)
Making brands vivid by making them conversational and respiratory is no small shift. It represents something very like a paradigm shift in marketing, setting several additional changes in train.

"Consumers still want a clear brand promise and offerings they value. What has changed is when—at what touch points—they are most open to influence, and how you can interact with them at those points."

"The coolest banner ads, best search buys, and hottest viral videos may win consideration for a brand, but if the product gets weak reviews—or, worse, isn’t even discussed online—it’s unlikely to survive the winnowing process."
