The Walking Dead: Popular Brands Edition

Some of the most popular brands of today’s time have actually been around for quite some time. They weren’t always the most popular, however, as many faded from the limelight at one point. Rising from the dead, these brands came back and regained their popularity.

Nintendo

When a company has been around for more than 120 years, it’s almost guaranteed it will see some bad years. Such was the case after Nintendo’s rival company, Sony, produced the PlayStation 2. But, with the Nintendo Wii and clever marketing agencies behind it, Nintendo regained its rightful spot on the throne of the gaming world.

Old Spice

It’s not uncommon for a man to use Old Spice, just like his dad did and his dad before that. Sine 1938, Old Spice products have been making men smell better, but it wasn’t always the most popular brand. When marketing agencies released an ad campaign that called for men to “Smell Like a Man, Man,” Old Spice made its comeback.

Dr. Martens

It’s almost impossible to find a hipster that doesn’t own a pair of Dr. Martens these days. Popular in the 90s, these shoes were the epitome of grunge. When the company released a “Vintage” line in 2010, everyone rushed to get their hands on a pair. Marketing agencies took advantage of the then popular, “throwback” and “vintage” trends and Dr. Martens were on runways across the world once again.

The Muppets

While the Muppets never fully disappeared, they faded from the limelight in the early 2000s. With a movie in 2011 that earned nearly $89 million, the Muppets came back stronger than ever.
