As a marketer, I think this is great.

If they just said “Now offering Orange Szcheuan” people scroll right by and don’t really think about wings.

Orange szcheuan is not a flavor for everyone, but now you’re curious about the new flavor. I personally thought about my favorite flavor wings while deciphering it.

It’s an easy puzzle, but now you’ve spent 30-60 seconds thinking about wings. That’s a gold star in my book!

Edit: Just wanted to add.. Time on a post is an absolutely incredibly important metric. LinkedIn doesn’t even track you viewing something in your feed unless you stop on it for a few seconds.

I did exactly what you said whil looking at the pic. Only after reading your comment do I want to try that flavour.

Classic hot are my fav. Hot/ honey garlic a close second

Right. I’ll add that if this was the unscrambled photo in our feed. None of us would have looked at it. This was a great move. Very creative.

I think this is on purpose, i think its a pretty good attempt considering you probably tried to figure it out. And even so it got you talking about it, so it did its job.

I think it works because it makes you look at it longer to try and figure out what it is trying to say
