Default New AMD marketing slogan revealed

In these days of micro-managed-mega-branding, corporations search far and wide to come up with the perfect positioning statement. Something that will stir the hearts and minds of all who see it. Searching through the Computex B-roll, it seems that our happy snappy chappies captured the next evolution of AMD’s messaging.

I think they initially intended to get Maradona and play on the Hand of God moniker. This was the backup plan for when the deal didn't come through.

Here are some slogans which explain what this slogan really means:

"Vision Makes Goal More Goal. Experience Drugs. Today."

"Proofreading Makes Your Slogans More Coherent."

"Don't Drink and Slogan."

"This Slogan Has a Goal. We Don't Know the Goal. Goal."

"Goal Makes Goal More Goal. Goal Goal. Goooooooooooooooal. Goal."

"It doesn't matter what you write. As long as you have a bold 'at' sign and capitalise WWW you're golden."

Default AMD Slogan - Vision Makes Goal More Goal

Perhaps AMD means to say that their Vision platform broadens users' goals and targets and therefore offers greater value. However, this slogan is definitely below par and sounds like AMD hired a copywriter from "Engrish as is sproken". AMD should have gone with something such as "Zoom in on Your Goal with AMD Vision".

if amd had been based in asia and they had used google translate to make their slogan - fine, but they are based in the usa ... English is their primary language.
I've tried to rewrite their slogan, so perhaps it affects some of the mmo players and not just a bunch of words put together in a blender:

visons makes dots - more dots

reference:J!NX : Gamer T Shirt - MORE DOTS! T Shirt - Clothing Inspired by Video Games & Geek Culture

Living in Japan, English is often used in advertising, but often (usually) doesn't make sense.

But English looks "cool," and most people around the world (especially in east Asia) understand the word "goal." It's repeated and could be inspiring, and may create an association in peoples minds with AMD.

Understanding it is not the point at all! And the fact we are having this discussion shows AMD have achieved their "goal" of drawing attention to themselves!

Well, that's my take.
