Apparel maker Hanes is partnering with JetBlue Airways during the month of June to gift customers on overnight JetBlue flights with complimentary Hanes Lay Flat Collar Undershirts. (I’m not exactly sure what the ladies are supposed to do with this men’s shirt – especially if their single, or lesbian.)
The t-shirts are an added component of JetBlue’s complimentary Shut-Eye Service that features a “Snooze Kit” with earplugs, eyeshades, and “good morning” hot towel service. In addition to the t-shirts, Hanes said it will also screen new airplane-themed ads on JetBlue’s PlusTV network which airs on all United States domestic flights during June, and is currently offering visitors to its Facebook fan page a chance to enter a weekly drawing to win two JetBlue round-trip travel certificates and a Hanes.com gift card. “Hanes has always been committed to providing superior comfort, which is why we are constantly creating new innovations that make people look and feel better,” said Sidney Falken, Senior Vice President, Hanes. “We are very excited about our new humorous airplane-themed ads, which communicate the benefits of our Hanes Lay Flat Collar Undershirts. Partnering with JetBlue Airways to display the ads and sample product seemed like a fun and relatable way to bring the marketing campaign to life.”

Diet Coke has inked a deal with Nails Inc. to produce a and four-piece collection of nail color. The nail polish can be ordered online through Asos.com, which has a partnership with the soda brand. The four-piece collection includes the nude London hue, a deep purple nod to Paris, a passionate red for Milan and a bright fuchsia pink for NYC…the colors sound appropriate for the cities they represent, but tell me Diet Coke, did you come up with the colors or was Nails Inc. doing some hand holding?
I feel like I’m missing something. Why really, would Diet Coke get into the Beauty industry? Should I be expecting more off brand collaborations out of Coke, or is this a one-off, random partnership? Someone make sense of this for me!
