In the wake of Snapple’s sponsorship of NYC earlier this month, New Yorkish is reporting on the new flavors of drinks that Snapple has made, (or not), just for New York City. You know you’re missing out if you don’t pick up a bottle of East River Sewage Soda®!
New York City’s The Bottom Line nightclub might just stick around a little longer. Apparently, reports of its demise are greatly exaggerated – okay, perhaps just a little too early. They’re in danger of getting booted by their NYU landlords, but Sirius satellite radio has put up the $185K that is owed to see if a new agreement can be reached. If it happens, I’m guessing we’ll be seeing Sirius’ logo, Mongo the dog, more often in the club.
Snapple has apparently ponied up to be the Official water, juice, and iced-tea provider for the city of New York. And only $166 Million took the contract! What a deal, though – only Snapple machines in schools, and in January machines in other city facilities. San Diego is sponsored for 12 years by Pepsi (for only $23.6MM), and East Lansing, Michigan, for 10 years by Coke (only $2MM).
Mayor Bloomberg is probably strutting his stuff right now over the $106MM he’s going to have in cash payments (the remainder is marketing). And the effects are already rolling in, with blogs like 601am.com changing their logo to fit in, since they’re located in NYC. [props to technorati cosmos]
This is fascinating. Gotta love marketing.
