Marketing

Over the years, Sprite advertising has used the portmanteau word "lymon," combining the words "lime" and "lemon," to describe the flavor of the drink. Recently, Sprite commercials have begun utilizing very quick and rapid way of presentation, also known as subliminal advertising.[1] This method has been dubbed "sublymonal" in the commercials. These advertisements were launched in conjunction with the soda's logo being redesigned. In 2004, Coke created Miles Thirst, a vinyl doll voiced by Reno Wilson used in advertising to exploit the growing hip-hop market for soft drinks. [2] In June 2006 the new Sprite logo began to make its debut on Sprite bottles and cans. The "Sublymonal" campaign was also used as part of the alternate reality game The Lost Experience.[citation needed] A portmanteau (IPA pronunciation: ) is a word or morpheme which fuses two or more words or parts of words to give a combined or loaded meaning. ...
