3M Sticky on Both Sides

Scotch Double Sided Tape by 3M was promoted in a pair of print and outdoor advertisements in India featuring the tongues of the chameleon and frog. At the tip of a chameleon’s long tongue there is a muscular structure covered in thick mucus that forms a suction cup. Once the prey sticks to the tip, it is unable to break free and is quickly drawn back into the mouth. A frog’s tongue is coated with thick saliva that helps to catch its prey. An important adaptation, it allows frogs to feed even in a split second. Once the prey is held in its sticky tongue, it is incapable of breaking loose. A two-headed chameleon and a two-headed frog are associated with the phrase, “Stick on both sides”.

One Response to 3M Sticky on Both Sides

  1. This is a very interesting and smart idea, but it can be a problem from the animal preservation point of view. This campaign was used in India, so it may be different from being used in the U.S., I think if we decide to do the similar campaign as this, it will be very controversial.
