Mao and Campbell’s Soup Can 2

The newspaper headline two days ago was tycoon Lau Luen-hung spent US$16.5m to get the famous printing “Mao” by Andy Warhol, the best quality one out of ten pieces. Neglecting for his purpose of buying this, I just believe it is just a piece of cake to sell to other uprising tycoons in China one day,there is always someone rich enough to afford it .

Of course, there is always someone not rich enough to do so as most of us. In order to join in the fun, let’s buy the Campbell soup! I don’t mean the postcard or poster, I mean the real canned campbell soup which can be served. As hearsay Andy Warhol Foundation is going to corporate with Campbell’s Soup to release four versions of different versions of tomato soup, after the cooperation with Hysteric Glamour and Levis. Hold on, wasn’t it out in 2004 already? eBay still has stock left. Well, the point is whether you dare open the can to have a sip of it or not, even though you are willing to give the limited edition up.

Maybe it is just a mistaken rumour from SlamXHype But to be assure, Campbell and the US supermarket Kroger have been long participated the Pink Ribbon, an onrush of business opportunities which is in the name of making a donation to a breast cancer care organization to whip the sales. Then the pink version of Campbell soup is successfulluy put into shelf. It donates 35 cents per can following the upper limit, 250000 US dollars. Two millions HKD seems not a small amount, however, in regard to their predicted sales, at least seven millions cans, this amount of promotion cost is utterly cheap. And please be reminded that at least 200000 people suffering from breast cancer.

It is just an analysis of the value of Andy Warhol’s “Mao” to the price of Campbell soup. If you just think I am just making a comparison, I have to say sorry to waste your time spent on reading this article.
