Contest! Hybrid Merchandise Catchy Phrases
 
GreenHybrid's online store is pretty empty. We currently offer custom mileage shirts, license plate frames and bumper stickers plus a few miscellaneous versions of each. Well, it isn't enough! :omg:

I'm looking for catchy phrases to stick on merchandise. Be creative and original, and reply with your ideas. Simple as that. Oh, one more thing: if I pick your phrase as the best of the bunch, I'll send you one of your products free.

There will need to be at least 15 quality, usable ideas (in my opinion) before a winner is announced. Members must have at least 10 posts to be eligible. Good luck!

------------------------------
One winner be chosen at my sole discretion and must reside in the US. By entering, members waive copyrights to their phrases and vouch for their originality.

Ok - I learned my lesson by not entering the last contest. These came to mind in about 10min time. Jason - can I post multiple times, because I'll probably think of some more on the drive home ? LOL

() = explanatory comments, except for the 'Dual Hemi(sphere)' one


Sometimes we could all use a little less
(yes, it's my sig. tag - but I really like it ;)

Drive smarter – not harder

Dual Hemi(sphere) Powered

Yes, my car may look funny…but I laugh as I drive past the gas pumps!

If we all drove these...no more middle east oil

If we all drove these...we’d be home by now (home = not in Iraq)

Support our Troops – trade in your gas guzzler

Do you really like getting 12 miles / gallon ?

Help shoulder the load – drive with it! (optional: ask me how)

Gas: $2.50 / gal
Electricity – self-generating
Getting over 30 mpg = Priceless (adjust for 40, 50, etc)

Go ahead and pass me…I’ll meet you at the next light

Go ahead and pass me…I’ll wave when I pass you at the next gas station

(for V6 hybrids): Whaddya mean, underpowered ? (may encourage racing, however)

Conquering the oil sheiks – 1 car at a time

Driving toward energy independence

__ and finally...

4,000,000 miles without an electrical outlet – and counting!

ha! Great contest, I'm in.. and some good ones there G&B-

"Size [of the mileage] does matter"

"(One small emission) Another (or One other) giant leap for mankind"

"Kiss me, I've gone Hy (or I'm Hy)"

"One Good Patriot ACTion"

Jason,

Here is mine:

"You may pass me on the highway, but I will pass you at the gas pump"

"I may be a going slower, but I go further"

"High gas prices? What do you mean? Doesn't your car get 50+ mpg?"


"What's under your hood?" - (back side) The power of two. Hybrid.

Yes, it's a hybrid. Yes, I love it. No, I haven't been to the gas station in the last 3 weeks.

"Can you say "54 miles per gallon?" I know I can."

Jason 05-04-2005 02:29 PM

Re: Contest! Hybrid Merchandise Catchy Phrases
 
A couple suggestions:
Steer away from the "slow" stereotypes. As more hybrids come out, the generalization isn't true anymore.
Stay short and sweet! Most are too long for some products.

Re: Contest! Hybrid Merchandise Catchy Phrases
 
Sorry if these have been posted already, I didn't read all of the other posts.

1) Hybrids do it better.

2) Hy Brid, good to see you.

3) Gas prices suck, you don't have to.

4) Feel the electricty!

5) Chicks dig high mpg.

6) My dog wants you to buy less gas. Get a hybrid.

Gas + Electric = Hybrid

How about:

"Got guzzler?"
"Respect my 50 MPG."
"Fear my gas mileage."
"You may be faster, but I'm smarter."
"Hybrid. No wires attached."
"Hybrids. Because Earth is important"

How about these: Some are stupid, but one might be a winner. Hope I haven't plagerized anyone's..... :omg:

"Hybrids, not as scary as YOURS! "

"HYBRIDS run on chicken feed"

"Hybrids, the future is NOW!"

"HYBRIDS, THEY'RE A GASaver!"

"Hybrids, not just for smart people anymore"

"Dr. Jekyl, Mr. Hybrid"

"Hybrids, less gas, more go!"

"Hybrids, half the gas, twice the fun!"

"HYBRID$AVE"

"HYBRIDS, MORE MILES & SMILES"

"DOUBLE GREENHYBRID"

"HYBRIDS, $$ in the bank, not the tank!"

"HYBRID SPELLS VALUE"

"HYBRIDS, SERENITY NOW!"

More to come.......

Re: Contest! Hybrid Merchandise Catchy Phrases
 
How 'bout:

"I've got a natural Hy" or "Drive Hy" - um, okay maybe not...

"YEE-HAH" - yes, this is the name I gave my car, but with a V6, I think it is appropriate (maybe only those of us in TX will get it though ;) )

or something a little more low brow - "Passing Gas in my new Hybrid" or "I pass gas - How 'bout you?" (sorry, it's late...)

or maybe you could market a part of an extension cord that will stick out of the gas tank :) (you know, like the tiger tail) Of course you would have to make it so that it wouldn't scratch the paint :P

P.S. I would love to buy the lic. plate bracket - but they are illegal here in TX now since they "cover up" the name of the state up at the top - and I have this on good authority since it was a cop who had to tell me this (and regrettably, that was NOT the reason he pulled me over). These politicians need to find a better way to spend my tax dollars... :cry:

(and I am now hoping I have enough posts to qualify :embarass: )

MajorHy 05-04-2005 09:10 PM

Re: Contest! Hybrid Merchandise Catchy Phrases
 
Here's another:

"Gas, Shmas... Hybrids' got game"

or

"Hybrid creed: most practical auto since Model-T"

Wangofree 05-05-2005 03:59 AM

Re: Contest! Hybrid Merchandise Catchy Phrases
 
Jason,
I think we're all putting in some effort here. Perhaps you could award a winner and a 2nd and 3rd place runner up getting a prize as well. (like a license plate holder.) ;)

Just a thought.

Wangofree 05-05-2005 04:14 AM

Re: Contest! Hybrid Merchandise Catchy Phrases
 
OK, I can't get this slogan thing out of my head.... here's a few more...please Jason end this madness!!!

"Hybrid, if they build it, you will come, and go"

"HYBRIDS fuel less"

"MY HYBRID HATES YOUR CAR"

"MY HYBRID IS SMARTER THAN YOUR CAR"

"HYBRIDS USE, NOT LOSE POWER"

"HYBRIDS S T R E T C H YOUR DOLLARS"

"WHY ARE HYBRID OWNERS SO HAPPY?"

"HYBRIDS WILL MOVE YOU"

Ack, my brain is fried :confused: .......time to quit.

Re: Contest! Hybrid Merchandise Catchy Phrases
 
Haha. I think a "Save the Dinosaurs" bumper sticker would be hillarious. :P

Jason 05-06-2005 04:23 PM

Re: Contest! Hybrid Merchandise Catchy Phrases
 
The first round of "catchy phrase" nominees have been selected. Five new bumper stickers have been added to the online store. If one of them is yours, you're in the running - congratulations! See the bumper stickers here.

Keep the ideas coming. ;) A winner will not be announced until 15 products are added.
