Yep, I have witnessed an avalanche of cows. Well, technically, I’m not sure you can call it avalanche, but at least the cold temperatures are applicable.
One of my favorite restaurants in San Diego is Souplantation. What’s not to like about a place with an all-you-can-eat giant salad bar, soup bar, pasta bar, fruit bar and muffin bar? And a few other yummy things.
Souplantation used to hide the kid’s milk in small fridges next to the registers at the end of the salad bar line when you walk in. They’ve apparently rearranged their line and now you can just help yourself to the kids’ drinks, including the milk. And look how many bottles of milk they have, featuring one cow on each bottle!

See the bottles of Heritage milk stacked up on top of each other, sitting on ice? Doesn’t this look like an avalanche waiting to happen? Don’t blink, you might miss it!
By the way, if you previously missed it, it’s worth taking a closer look at the Heritage milk cow. It’s pretty disturbing, as in “mutant” like.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you crossed a cow with a giraffe? Yeah, me neither. Well, that’s until earlier this week, when I heard my kid say, “Mama, you’ve got to see this!”
He’s right, I had to see it and now you’re seeing it too. I present you the cow giraffe!
Isn’t it cute? It came from a bag full of self-adhesive foam animal shapes similar to this one. It’s the only animal in the bag that looks this close to a cow.
By the way, if you’re curious to know what happens when you cross other animals together, I have one more for you. What happens when you cross a leopard and a cow? A leopard cow, of course! Courtesy of the Cow Parade people.

This is the last in the series on the marketing power of cows in print ads, after the bulls of Big Rich Texas, the jumping cow of the Over the Moon milk, and the veggie cow for Lightlife’s veggie burgers (my favorite of all, I think).
Today’s cow is selling milk again. But not any milk. Horizon milk, which is organic (plain milk or chocolate milk flavor). It comes in a convenient package that doesn’t need refrigeration, so kids can pack it up in their lunch sacks when they go on a field trip. That, I get and I like.
The cow from the Horizon milk ad
But here’s my problem. At first glance, I thought the big Horizon milk cow was part of the art museum’s exhibit. Then I realized the kids were holding its ear and tail, walking in line, so I guess the cow is going on a field trip with them. Why is that? Are the kids supposed to milk the cow when they’re thirsty? What about the chocolate flavor? Do they pull a different udder for that?
I don’t know what you personally think about this ad, but it doesn’t do it for me. That cow is very cute by the way. I think it deserves its own spot in a museum. One day…

This is the third post in my series on the marketing power of cows in print ads. You can view the veggie cow of LightLife and the jumping cow for Over the Moon milk if you missed them earlier this week.
Today, our print ad cows are actually bulls. Huge bulls! Two of them. They’re telling me to watch a TV show called Big Rich Texas, which I’d never heard of until I saw this ad. It probably doesn’t help that I don’t watch TV.
Are you ready to see this ad? Warning: it’s a little disturbing, in several ways.
The bulls of Big Rich Texas
Wow, did you see the bulls’ golden horns? That’s some shiny bull… Oh, and let’s not forget the golden nose ring. Very classy.
Did you notice the woman sitting on the bull is wearing leather? How about a cowhide outfit? Now THAT would have impressed me.
And that tagline, “You can’t keep the bull out of the country club”? I’ll admit that’s a little more catchy than the Over the Moon milk tagline (“believe”).
If you’ve ever watched Big Rich Texas, I want to hear what it’s like, so please share your comments below.

This afternoon I was planning to share another print ad I recently spotted in a magazine (see cow print ad #1 here and cow print ad #2 here). I actually starting writing the post, but then I took a break and read a fellow blogger’s post and thought I’d highlight her post instead. Why? Because she’s got a cow image in there. With lots of cows…
The way she moos
Now that you’ve met your cow quota for today, hop over to Robin’s blog and her post on “Sentences that sing”. She features a really good sentence out of her upcoming novel. And no, the sentence doesn’t mention any cows. :-)
