What Liquid Death Loves About Weird Internet Culture
Junk-food brands are well versed in funny, bold marketing. But why can't healthier brands also be hilarious and irreverent? Mike Cessario asked himself that question in launching Liquid Death, the canned water brand. On this episode of On Brand, Mike takes us through his marketing playbook—from the amusing heavy-metal and punk albums Liquid Death created (with lyrics pulled from nasty online comments) to its Cutie Polluties stuffed animals. He also reveals the best advice he's gotten, and muses on other ways Liquid Death might infiltrate weird internet culture going forward.
