Boeing company uses A321 in website promo

נשלח לפני
 
A Boeing company, Inventory Locator Service, yesterday posted an Evolution of Boeing graphic on its website that traces key points in Boeing’s history. There was a problem, however: the airplane at the top of the graphic, which was photo-shopped with Boeing 737 identification, was an Airbus A321. (leehamnews.com) עוד...

I assume this was someone in the marketing department who couldn't be bothered to figure out what company he worked for or even what industry he was creating marketing-material for and just went with the first google image result for some horrifyingly generic search term

Probably the worst marketing that had no clue what they were doing.

This sort of mix-up happens all the time. The Florida tourist board uses a sunset photo shot in Hawaii. A company in Colorado uses a scenic photo of mountains in Wyoming. It happens a lot. Some low-level peon picks a stock photo to use and their higher-ups assume it's the right one. Most people in this forum know aircraft well, but none of us are experts in every field and could make similar mistakes. What should happen is that someone higher in the food chain should have double-checked it, but we live in an imperfect world. Anyway, if it wasn't for mistakes like this, some of you would have no one to feel superior to.

I definitely agree with you. Just to add that sometimes even the people higher in the food chain prefer a sunset in Hawaii than a sunset in Florida for their ad. So, it's not necessarily a low-level peon mistake.
That said, I do agree that a high Boeing officer should notice the mistake much more easily, than the sunset mistake...

I would be surprised if every high Boeing officer (especially maybe in Finance or some other admin posts like say IT) would be capable of differentiating their a/c from any other manufacturers.

Marco Rubio's ‘Morning in America’ Ad Used Stock Footage of Canada

Rubio's campaign ad featured a boat crossing a picturesque harbor. "It's morning again in America," the narrator intones but the stock footage in the video is shots of Vancouver, Canada.

Looking closely at the rest of the shots in that Rubio video it’s quite likely that the entire thing expect some stock shots of other places was shot in British Columbia, presumably to save money vs US production.

Man. And you guys freak out when some intern at a news site puts the wrong plane in an article...

it was probably made by a marketing company, not anyone that works under boeing. regardless, they shouldve done a tiny bit of research. how hard would it have been to find a 747-100 photo or any MD aircraft too?! no excuses, this was terrible.

This is a riot! What idiots. The VP of Marketing at Boeing should be shown the door. The A321 even has those funny little winglets, how obvious. I hope the Wright Flyer photo is correct though.

Even the b-52 photo is the wrong one

It's bad enough they made the mistake once, but they did it twice in the same ad. Top and bottom.

Prank I hope? Maybe this is a hint that Boeing secretly owns Airbus...

Or Airbus is in the market to buy Boeing? Imagine the kudos the EU would get for secretly financing that deal!

Actually, Bojangles financed the deal. The new products will be known as the Bo bus...

Doh!
I assume that Boeing will not be paying for that marketing piece and the company who did it will have a tough time getting more accounts.

I remember some tourism campaign used humpback whales breaching from a different campaign and called out on it a few years ago. Cest la vie.

In my opinion....BOEING will always be the standard of perfection! Without compromise.

Must be that Boeing very well knows the A321 is a superior product and is trying to take advantage :)
