U.S. MARINE CORPS BASE, CAMP H.M. SMITH, Hawaii --
The Marine Corps is known for its fighting prowess, but how does it stand up in the world of product recognition?
Yahoo Inc., in partnership with USA Today, is holding an online poll to choose the next addition to the Madison Avenue Advertising Walk of Fame.
The vote is part of Advertising Week 2007, the largest annual gathering of advertising and media decision-makers in North America.
Beside famous slogans like Nike’s “Just Do It,” and Taco Bell’s “Think Outside the Bun,” is a slogan that has characterized the Marine Corps for more than 20 years.
“The Few, The Proud, The Marines,” has been nominated as one of the 26 best slogans in the 2007 competition.
The winning slogans will be etched on a plaque and set alongside other time-honored slogans on Madison Avenue, between 49th and 50th Streets in New York City.
The winner will be announced on the Net Sept. 26.
