Get Milked: Milk Has Its Own Emoticon

In the trades today:

The Milk Processor Education Program, or MilkPEP, has added a branded emoticon to its new media strategy. Based on a variation of the familiar smiley :-) the new emoticon features the iconic “milk mustache” represented by the addition of “{“.

“We want kids to use it as shorthand when talking about the campaign online,” Sal Taibi, president of Lowe, MilkPEP’s New York agency.

The introduction of :-{) is part of MilkPEP’s recent teen-oriented campaign which includes pages on MySpace featuring celebrities, such as Beyonce and David Beckham.

I’m sure kids will be totally down with using a branded emoticon. You know, because this couldn’t possibly backfire.
