The article “Nestle in Review of ‘Gold Blend Couple’ Strategy” reviews the possible future of a past advertisement to see if it will market as well today as in the 1980’s. In the 1980’s, Nestle released a series of commercials featuring a “will they or won’t they couple” who were neighbors. The commercial saga depicts the ongoing relationship between the neighbors and their interactions with each other. The commercial saga was so successful that in the late 1980’s, thirty million viewers tuned into to watch the couple’s first kiss. Now, Nestle is bringing back the commercial hoping to place feel on the advertising of their Gold Blend Coffee. Nestle is now discussing a new way to create the same effect as the original Gold Blend Coffee couple in today’s marketing atmosphere. Article Relatedness:
