Anti-Valentine’s Day: Brand Naming For Lonely Hearts
I have been watching with some amusement the rise of anti-Valentine’s day brand naming. Today as you snuggle up with your loved one, please spare a thought to those of us who have had enough of this faux holiday and are striking back with some very interesting products that inadvertently have become anti-Valentine’s day icons.
If you just can’t bear the thought of another Valentine’s day, why not treat yourself to an anti-Valentine's day movie. Matt Atchly has a big list of classic movies that seem to feature Glen Close quite a few times.
Before you sit down to enjoy the likes of “Fatal Attraction” or “Dangerous Liaisons,” don't forget to send yourself an anti-Valentine’s day gift (I like the concept of bittersweet hearts that say Table for 1 or Peaked at 17) as well as an anti-VD day card.
Stuck in the 80's has a wonderful list of anti-Valentine’s day Ham has a recipe for the ultimate anti-Valentine's day meal: white bean and artichoke heart dip, which you might have before a serving of jerk chicken with bitter melon.
If you just can’t bear the thought of cooking on this, the loneliest of all the holidays, why not treat yourself to the Second Annual Anti-Valentine’s Day Ball at the New York Helmsley or the Broken Heart Ball at Otto’s in New York City, where the Saints of Pain will be playing.
Now that's great lonely heart’s club band naming.
