The Moon, Sponsored By....

Have you heard about this announcement?  Japan, in a joint venture with Singapore and the USA, is set to launch a powdered can of sports drink with the rather different name, "Pocari Sweat", to the moon by October, 2015.

Because I can't be arsed to go into detail, I'll let the video below sort of explain what the heck is planned.  And yes, to update this post, I think people on our planet should be concentrating on helping out our most vulnerable in society.  
Are you over the moon, or maybe on the moon with this marketing strategy?  What do you think about placing advertising on the moon?  Think of the possibilities. You might get your own blogging rocket and set up a billboard on the moon.  A billboard announcing your latest blog hop, blog fest, a link to your blog, your latest cover reveal, your most recent book, your book's blog tour or maybe have a really big bold billboard making mention of some alphabet challenge.  It would also be highly recommended that your billboard is not located on the dark side of the moon.  

Why stop there?  You may or may not ask.  An enormous Mars chocolate bar on Mars.  One chomp out of that chocolate-coated crap and the Martians will be so sick they wont bother invading planet Earth. You might say why would they want to invade planet Earth.  A very good question.
This is Uranus.  Complete with rings around Uranus.  Uranus is one of the "gas giants" in the Solar System.  







Here's a possible advertising billboard on Uranus.

  1. This quite possibly answers the question, "To what lengths will they go to for advertising?" Apparently to the moon at least. Good grief - it's a bit extreme if you ask me. CindyLu, on the other hand, now has ideas in her head. SHE wants her face seen on the moon. How about Penny?

    1. Hi Kim,

      Indeed, advertising is running out of um space on earth, or so it seems. A bit of a lunatic marketing strategy, eh? CindyLu will have her own billboard on the moon. I do imagine a gigantic photo of CindyLu on a lunar billboard. Think of all those with telescopes looking at her. Penny is planning a similar billboard on Pluto. No, not that Pluto from Disney. That poor planet that got demoted. Penny pawmoting Pluto! :)

      Have a peaceful, sunny weekend, Kim.

  2. I have a huge telescope, and so far, I haven't seen any advertising on the moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, or Uranus. But Uranus would be a well named planet to advertise Preparation H, right?

  3. I was waiting for a Uranus joke!
    Why would I want a billboard on the Moon? Who is going to see it?
    I'll wait until space travel expands farther and place one on Pluto, since everyone will want to stop there to see if it really is a planet or not.

    1. Hi Alex.

      Relax, you're a Ninja! Uranus and bottoms up with that.

      You would have super large billboard on the moon. The side we can see would be preferable. It will be so large that your billboard could be seen by the naked eye.

      Reinstate Pluto. You could do that. It is not just some rock floating aimlessly around the sun. Bad, bad astronomers!!

      Have a lunar weekend, good sir.

  16. Oh definitely, I'll have my billboard on Venus please. I guess Mars Bar should put their billboard on Mars. I understand Venus is mostly water so I would have to be shown in a bathing suit.

    1. Hi Jo,

      Seems likes a great idea. I'm now reminded of that book, "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus." If there is water on Venus, I can guarantee it would be the warmest water you ever swam in. Although, trying to get a suntan on Venus might be difficult, what with the thick layer of cloud. Of course, ads on space ships. The possibilities are endless. Space, the final ad frontier. Let's hope note :)

Hopefully we won't see ads on the moon when we look at it because it is beautiful on its own. During different phases we wouldn't be able to see the ads anyway- so hopefully that will be a deterrent.

      I might have to change the comment format. I know by the time I scroll down on a posting with loads of comments with this format that has loads of comments, I've forgotten what I was going to comment about.

      The sad reality is that you are correct. The money would be spent on champagne on that posh twat aka David Cameron.

      Very good and I'm glad you got into the spaced out spirit of this. Milky Way would be placed on the star, Sirius. I cannot be Sirius! Galaxy ad would be located on a black hole and be a waste of time and space. Universal Studios would place an ad on Twenty First Century Farce Studios.

      Gary :)

    1. Hey Tam-bare!

      I discover lots of things thanks to Uranus.

      You almost liked my post. This is good, very good :) Another interview. Another survivor. You need to take your interviewing skills to that next level and publicly humiliate the interviewee.....Penny is a GIRL! :) No breeding for her. Plenty of offers, but she's a fussy dawg...

      Thanks, Tam-bear. Gosh and giggle.

      Gary :)

  52. People are idiots. I'm not sure what else to say.

    Oh, I know what I can say: Uranus. (*giggling*) Sorry. I had to.

    1. Hi Lynda,

      There are a lot of idiotic folks out there. And some would like to prove what idiots they are by taking a can of Japanese sweat drink to the moon.

      Uranus and the laxative that is British coffee!

    1. Hi Life happens,

  54. ... and of course the Uranus theme song is "Ring of Fire." I find human's ability to stake claim to everything as if they are entitled to it to be sooooo tiresome... why dont we stake claim to our responsibilities to each other... ***CRASH!*** ... Arghhhh...that was me falling off my soapbox!

  55. HI Zoe,

    Great! Thanks for that. Now that bloody, vindaloo inspired Johnny Cash song is ringing around Uranus.

    A world where we all showed compassion and took responsibility for our actions. Hope your soapbox doesn't end up on the moon! :)

  56. *LOL* Hilarious! Now I'm craving a Mars bar. Rich and fluffy, and ooh, chocolate. As for the can on the moon, that's just ridiculous.

    1. Hi Christine,

      Thank you! :) There's a very large Mars bar on Mars. The Martians are avoiding eating it. It's all for you. How will you get there is another matter. The can on the moon and the man in the moon. Everything is loony tune....

  57. Hi Gary, I've just found your blog through the A-Z reflections, and I was immediately struck by the wonderful header photo. I love Wales but I haven't been to Cenarth Falls yet so that's definitely one for the future. And you have a little Jack Russell - I have two, brilliant friends and camping companions.

    I've only read a couple of your posts so far but they've given me a good giggle and I look forward to reading more when I get home from work :)

    1. Hi Tigermouse,

      Very nice to meet you :) Ah yes, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar's alternative to the dreaded A to Z :)

      Ah Wales, what an enchanting country. Cenarth Falls is a magical place and definitely a great place to immerse yourself and your two adorable Jack Russell dogs in the wonders of the great outdoors. Amazing dogs, my friend.

      Thanks for having read a couple of my posts. Or is that Penny's pawsts....Shall come over and visit your site.

      Take very good care and thanks again.

      Gary :)

  59. Hi Gossip_Grl,

  62. Hi, Gary, Hi, Penny,

    This is too ridiculous to even comment about! The natural beauty of our planet is ALREADY POLLUTED with so much CRAP we human leave behind. It gets me SICK. It's bad enough to see litter from packaging all over the coastlines in America, not to mention the parks. Now their talking about the sky, other planets? Killing their beauty too.

    I know this is supposed to be so ridiculous it's humorous. But I don't find the humor in this at all. I love nature, animals, and even people. I'd like to know why? For money? Not a good enough excuse for me. No amount of money is worth murdering the galaxy and all its mysterious wonders...

    Okay, Off my soapbox now... Thanks for dropping by earlier Gary. I always appreciate your visits...

    Give Penny a big hug for me...

    1. Hi human, Michael,

      The alleged humour was sarcasm for the stupidity of it all. My ethos and my human's ethos is the same as yours. Your soapbox observation is duly noted and please remember that there's always an underlying serious message in what we write here. I'm encouraged that you know this.

      I shall give my human, fictional or otherwise, a big hug from you. Then I shall breathe on him :) A peaceful, hopeful weekend to you, dear human friend.

  63. Hi Penny and Gary,
    I giggled all the way through this post but honestly! We’ve finished cluttering up our own planet so now let's start on the moon!

    I bagsy going on the first litter pick! You coming??

    1. Hi human, Barbara,

      It seems, despite my human's tongue-in-cheek angle on this does have that serious message. Now idiotic humans are going to use the universe as some kind of landfill. A tip that is not a tip at all.

      Pick of the litter, pawhaps? I'm on my way...

      A lovely weekend to you, dear human friend.

  64. I have trouble believing that getting to the moon to drink a citrus powder is going to inspire astronauts, but hey, what do I know? Technology has come a long way, but I don't know if this really is indicative of progress. Very interesting though. Thanks Gary. Maria @ Delight Directed Living

    1. Hi human, Maria,

      It seems like a cynical pawblicity, sorry, human publicity stunt. This is technology being used for all the wrong reasons. Money could be better spent on the most vulnerable people, animals and plants on this fragile planet. My human, Gary, is sleeping. However, on his behalf, I thank you.

      Have a nice weekend, my kind human friend.

      Penny

I do try to comment back to each commenter individually. However, I might have to shorten my replies or give a group thank you. That way, I can spend more time commenting on your blogs. Thank you and peace, my friend.
