What’s Your Banana Name?

No stranger to either online marketing or a sense of humor, Ed Kohler has a pretty fun project in the works called Banana Name where he’s writing names of blogs/sites on bananas and posting to the site, BananaName.com.

Here’s the post he did for OMB.

In a strange way, this reminds me of Chris Pirillo’s “rent my chest” efforts, which started out with Ponzi writing ads literally on Chris’s chest. I suspect that became impractical and evolved into the more automatic version linked above.

Let’s hope Ed “keeps it real” with the bananas, which, he has a LOT of. Check it out.

  1. A lot of people can say that they’ve seen their name in lights but not on a banana! That totally rocks!

    Congrats on your banana fame 🙂

  2. That’s a very original idea, I guess we could call it Banana Link Bait.
