The Edge eyes India, Toshiba uses memes
Toshiba has launched a campaign, "Meme it like You Mean it", targeted at youths, based on the culture of internet memes for its M840 Satellite series of laptops. For instance, one ad runs with the tagline "Hey I just met you and your colours are crazy. But here's my number, so call me maybe", miming a popular song by Carly Jepsen Rae. Done by local branding shop Acre, the campaign runs on Facebook and through blogger engagement initiatives. It also runs regionally across Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam, until 10 August.
