It's 3:51 am and I just finished writing a 24-page research paper on Smirnoff Vodka's marketing strategies.

It only took me a couple of days and 2 weeks of research.

I am very tired. I'm not even gonna edit it.

Yay.

Citing all my sources using the MLA style only took me a half an hour. Yay.

It took 5 minutes to print.

It took repeat trips to Robart's, the Ref, PMB and the Ryerson library to get all the info.

I think I deserve an A but knowing my prof, I'm probably gonna get a B minus.

I'm gonna celebrate by writing a report due tomorrow until 5 am, waking up at 9 am to go to class tomorrow morning and going to work after till 8:30 pm.

Heather, expect a tired-looking Sunny tomorrow at your place.

Yay.

Go ahead, congratulate me!

After you hand it in, remember to call them early Sunday morning (at home) to ask them how it was.

I edited on the subway. It's really hard to add "a's" and "the's" when you're standing.

nice one sunny.

feels so good to finish huge projects like that. my brother recently went to a smirnoff ice focus group... too bad i didn't get you guys to speak during the paper writing.

can i read it?

Wow, I should've went to that. It would've given me more reason to hate Smirnoff, the world, conglomerates and corporate branding!

Do you get paid for focus groups? Cuz I'd do it (though it is sleazy to work DIRECTLY for The Man) for some quick cash.

I'm not only a smart consumer, I'm a greedy bastard as well! :D

If you wanna read 24 pages of analytical jargon. I mean, I must've used the word "ideology" a million times.

The research paper has various parts:
1. The corporate history of the drink name and its linkages with any media outlets, how it functions as a conglomerate and who owns who. You find out SO MANY interesting linkages between all the companies out there. Like Diageo PLC (who owns Smirnoff) also owns Moet Hennessy which is a subsidiary of LVMH. LVMH own Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior. Diageo also owns Burger King so you could say that the burger flipper at BK could be the nephew of John Galliano!

2. Their marketing strategies and a demographics analysis.

3. A semiotic analysis (how the ad conveys meaning).

4. An ideological Analysis.

5. A comparison of two ads of Smirnoff, one from 1966 and one from 1997 and a comparison of the publications they chose to advertise in.

Did you know an ad in Sports Illustrated cost $162, 000 a page in 1997?
