Q: What in the wide world of sports does Tippit & Moo mean?
A: It’s an old vaudeville act from the 1920s. Teddy Tippit and Maude Moo did a few musical numbers, such as “Way Down Upon the Sewanee River", while doing ye olde soft shoe on a bed of white Bermuda sand. Their pet monkey, Moonshine, also sang and danced, but died in 1922. Teddy and Maude kept him in the act, after having him stuffed, although he could no longer reach the high notes.
Q: Isn’t Tippit & Moo some kind of reference to cow tipping?
A: Okay, the name does refer to tipping, or knocking over the traditional ways
of doing things. Coming from an unconventional strategic positioning and using leverage to get people leaning in the direction of your brand. But Moonshine was still one heck of a song and dance monkey, and we shouldn’t forget it.
Q: So your employees enjoy fresh milk every day?
A: Not really, but our clients enjoy fresh creative served on a daily basis.
Q: Why are the pictures of your staff upside down?
A: The camera we used was from Australia, and well, you know. That, and the fact that it’s a very subtle reference to our approach to advertising - which is 180 degrees different from other agencies. And don’t forget the whole tipping thing.
Q: Does Tippit & Moo specialize in any specific kind of advertising?
A: Yes. The good kind. We only do work that stands out, that knocks people for a loop, that not only gets their attention, but gets them off the fence. No advertising pasture patties here, my friend.
Q: So, you guys work in the general or Hispanic market?
A: We’re multicultural, multilingual, multidenominational, multi-instrumental, multifarious, multinational and polyglots in every aspect of the industry. Si, we hablo, but we also speak Karaoke, Texan and Brooklynese and a variety of other cultures and languages.
Q: Just out of curiosity, is cow tipping for real?
A: It’s for real, all right. At least when it comes to marketing. Give us a call and find out how we can knock your consumer for a loop with your brand.
