Boston College: Red Bull’s red and gold logo can “give you wings” – for better or worse – even if consumers don’t know it, according to a new study by two BC professors, who found the brand’s edgy marketing efforts have sold a heavy dose of attitude to consumers.

Researchers put subjects at the controls of a car racing video game, supplying each with functionally identical racecars, but each car decorated with a different brand logo and color scheme. Players put in control of the Red Bull car displayed the characteristics often attributed to the brand – like speed, power, aggressiveness and risk-taking – and the results were both positive and negative. In some cases, the drivers sped around the game course. In others, their recklessness caused them to crash and lose valuable time.

“In a performance context, what we see is that people racing the Red Bull car race faster and more aggressively, sometimes recklessly, and they either do very, very well or they push themselves too far and crash,” said Brasel, an assistant professor of marketing. Full Story

know that the preflash should serve as a red-eye-reduction-tool... *turns red*. One day I will learn how to remove red-eyes with photoshop. There are lots of tutorials on the web but none of them suggests certain colour settings. My edited eyes always look so "plastic".

Systems of schooling involve institutionalized teaching and learning in relation to a curriculum, which itself is established according to a predetermined purpose of the schools in the system. Schools systems are sometimes also based on religions, giving them different curricula. Thank you. writing a phd proposal

Red Bull Investment?
I really like Red Bull - and their marketing campaigns (including YouTube videos and extreme sport hosting) are incredibly effective. Unfortunately I don't think Red Bull is a private company you can invest in. On the other hand, has anyone here had any luck investing in Monster?
