Laugh a little: 7-Eleven becomes Kwik-E-Mart

In a really clever promotion for the new Simpsons movie, 7-Eleven is turning 12 stores around the country into the fictional Kwik-E-Mart from the TV show.  Even better, national manufacturers are creating real versions of the fictional products from the show (Malt-o-Meal is creating Krusty-Os), and Slurpees are becoming Sqwishees.

Here’s why this is so great: It’s funny. 

For 15 years, the Simpsons have been mocking 7-Eleven and their managers.  They could have gotten their shorts in a bundle, like the embarrassing response from the National Restaurant Association to Nationwide’s SuperBowl ads featuring Kevin Federline as a lowly burger flipper.

Instead, 7-Eleven joined in the fun, had a good laugh with the rest of America, and is getting a ton of positive vibes and great word of mouth.

So, marketers … chill out and have a delicious Slushee.
