On Vitner’s Pretzel Superthins appears a mascot called “Vinnie” playing a pretzel trumpet. Vinnie strikes an uncanny resemeblance to an illustration I did for General Electric’s phone accessories in 2000.
What is it with generic cartoon red sunglasses, and gloves on the hands? I think the gloves are to help keep that fine line between product and humanity. Can’t have the product be too human, let’s stick some gloves and shades on him. And make those generic red sunglasses too!
And then there is the mysterious non-existent Vitner’s website. What? No website?! I want more info on this Vinnie. What is this cosmic connection I have with him? I have a phone call into the sales director, Phillip Bremser, at Vintner’s asking him for more information on this elusive mascot.
Idea brought on by Dave and his amazing pretzels.
