Chapter 451: Septwolves' Advertisement Tagline!
The three of them arrived at the hotel. It was the Hotel Equatorial along Liangguan Avenue. It was a five-star hotel, but it was not considered one of the high end five-star hotels, but it wasn't low end either.
Liu Qian tutted, "You got such a nice place?"
Zhang Shuang did not feel the pinch and said, "I heard from my friend that the suites here are more spacious. The interior room decoration is also quite good. There's also a panoramic view too and the lighting is quite good."
Liu Qian felt the pinch even more. "Panoramic? A suite?"
Zhang Shuang said firmly, "This time, it's a desperate bet!"
"How much is a single room? 1500? 2000?" When Liu Qian saw Zhang Shuang nod her head and say something along the lines of about there, she whispered, "You are really going all out. Our blogshop's business can't even earn 2000 a month. You sure are good, for you to just spend all of it on reserving a hotel room? It's not even business hours for the hotel til afternoon. Our reservation at best allows us to stay till the afternoon. That's too wasteful."
However, Zhang Shuang insisted, "My brother is willing to be our model, so of course we need a good place for the photo shoot, or else it will look completely off. We can't be as pedestrian as we were with the previous models. If we're doing a photo shoot, it must be done well. Enough Qianqian, let's go in!"
She entered the reserved room.
Liu Qian reluctantly got a hotel staff to help them move the suitcases. There were a total of three suitcases filled with men's clothing.
Zhang Ye followed behind them, carrying the camera equipment they rented.
In the panoramic suite.
Liu Qian instructed the hotel staff to place the suitcases on the ground and then took out a hundred bucks as tips for them. It could be seen that her heart was bleeding. There was no other way. Since business was bad, and there was no other source of income, she and Zhang Shuang were each poorer than the other. They were reluctant to part with even a hundred bucks!
"Will this really work?"
"Are you sure?"
"You've already asked me twice. I'm very sure!"
Liu Qian sighed and began opening the suitcases. Zhang Shuang was also off to the side helping out . They started taking out the clothes and matching them. The clothes' sizing were of course all Zhang Ye's measurements. Before coming, they had already picked the clothes out, which had mostly been done before Liu Qian had gone to acquire the camera equipment.
"Is the lighting okay?"
"Let me try a shot."
"How is it?"
"Good, there shouldn't be a problem."
Zhang Ye did not interfere. He just stood in front of the panoramic glass and looked at the view. His mission today was to cooperate. He would do whatever his sister instructed.
Zhang Shuang called out to him, "Little Ye, we are done. Change into a suit first."
Zhang Ye turned around and gave a look. "Hur, it looks like there will be quite a bit of work. So many clothes?"
"Just endure the hard work, Sis will thank you properly next time." Zhang Shuang said with a smile.
Zhang Ye took the clothes and went to the bathroom. He had experience wearing clothes. Back when he was producing talk shows, he followed his world's "Tonight 80's Talkshow" clothing style. Every episode, he would wear a leisure suit, so he was already very skilled and used to it.
Blue suit, black shirt, black trousers.
Zhang Ye seemed to completely transform after he came out of the bathroom. Compared to the clothes he randomly picked out from before, Zhang Ye's bearing seemed to rise a few hundred times. There was even a glint in his eyes that seemed deep and unfathomable. His smile seemed to have a vague sinister look to it, like the ocean, like the sky, like the universe...
Alright, let's cut the bragging.
Actually, he didn't change for shit.
Liu Qian said listlessly. "Standing there will do."
Zhang Ye moved, "Here?"
Liu Qian said, "Further to the side. Alright, don't move." The moment she become shooting, she was quite professional. "You can smile a bit...Right..Your posture is a bit monotonous, try changing to another pose...Good!"
One set of clothing...
Two sets of clothing...
Twenty sets of clothing...
Zhang Ye constantly changed into sets of different clothes and photos were taken one after another.
Two years ago, Liu Qian had previously done some photography work, and worked for a company, she would help out whenever any blogshop owners needed models or photographers. The company would bring the equipment too, and it was because they had quite a bit of interaction in this field did she and Zhang Shuang decide to open a blogshop. Speaking of which, the number of models Liu Qian had photographed numbered at least eighty, if not a hundred, but truthfully speaking, she had never seen a model as average looking as Zhang Shuang's brother. Height? He wasn't considered tall. Looks? He wasn't considered handsome. Bearing? He did not have any impressive bearing either. His eyes seemed somewhat attractive, and well, his voice was very pleasing to the ears too, but what was the point of that? Photographs did not include sound, so up to now, she did not know why her best friend placed all her hopes on her brother!
And his endorsements cost millions?
Who were you bluffing! Have you seen such an ordinary looking celebrity before?
"Alright, it's all done." Liu Qian kept the camera.
Zhang Shuang, who was sitting at a desk, had already switched on a notebook computer she brought. "Give it to me. I'll arrange them." She began choosing photos. The good ones were kept and the bad ones were deleted. This job was done quickly. The pictures were grouped up and categorized. "OK, let's upload it."
Liu Qian exclaimed, "Upload right now?"
Zhang Shuang said with excitement, "Of course. It's a race against time!"
Liu Qian said, "What's the rush? Our business has been bad for months, and won't miss this short period of time. Let's go back to your place for lunch. Auntie is still waiting for us."
Zhang Shuang looked at her watch. "It's not even 12 yet. Let's upload it first. We'll leave after we uploading it." Saying that, she began to operate the platform's backend and uploaded picture after picture.
Zhang Ye went over to take a look, "Sis, is it done?"
Zhang Shuang acknowledged and then frowned. "No, it seems like something is still missing."
Liu Qian was sitting on the couch and said without interest, "What's missing?"
Zhang Shuang suddenly rapped the table, "Right! We're short of an advertisement tagline." The moment she said that, Zhang Shuang's big eyes landed on Zhang Ye. "Bro, help me to the end."
Zhang Ye said exasperatedly. "You want me to do one for you now?"
However, Zhang Shuang said, "With your literary talent, should that even be a problem?"
Liu Qian exclaimed, "Let your brother make a advertisement tagline? Wasn't our old advertisement tagline pretty good? Simple Men's Clothing-Astralwolves' brand."
Zhang Shuang rolled her eyes. "That was too simple. Now with a true expert here, don't even talk about how we just randomly came up with a tagline from a brain fart. It's embarrassing!"
"Expert?" Liu Qian looked at Zhang Ye.
Zhang Shuang said anxiously, "Bro, Sis is relying on you."
Zhang Ye could only say, "What's your brand called?"
Liu Qian said, "Astralwolves' brand."
Zhang Ye said, "Oh, so do you want the tagline to be long or short? How many words?"
Liu Qian turned gleeful. You sure won't reject any request? Did that mean you could write out anything long, short, fat or thin? You sure sound boastful.
Zhang Shuang gave it a moment of thought, "I want something long, that I can put on our homepage. Others only have a tagline that's a sentence or two. It looks too simple and doesn't look domineering enough. It won't attract anyone."
Liu Qian said, "Blogshops have short taglines because short advertisements are more suitable for the way sales are done. Secondly, everyone is a small business, and can't compare with those big brands. Everyone wants to write a long advertisement, but they lack the literary talent!"
Zhang Shuang blinked her eyes. "Then I'll want a short one too."
"One long and one short?" Zhang Ye asked.
Zhang Shuang nodded and said, "Right!"
Zhang Ye naturally did not say another word. If others asked him for an advertisement tagline, he would definitely talk about the price first before discussing about other things. If he was not satisfied, he would not give it to them, but since it was his own sister, Zhang Ye definitely would not disagree. "Alright, note it down." Without a thought, he already had an advertisement tagline.
Liu Qian was surprised. That can't be? He already has one?
Zhang Shuang was fully engrossed as she prepared to note it down on her computer.
They only heard Zhang Ye said, "Men have more than one dimension-Astralwolves' brand."
Upon ruminating over the words, Zhang Shuang said, "This phrase is full of flavor!"
Liu Qian didn't think much of it. "So simple? It's about the same as the previous advertisement tagline we came up with."
Then, Zhang Ye began to recite the longer advertisement tagline. Actually, it was an extension of the previous tagline. The long and short versions were actually one and the same.
"A simple word."
"Yet carries rich implications."
"They seek closeness yet distant thoughts."
"Willing to forge ahead."
"Visions of the future through wisdom."
"They are restrained yet still soar."
"Calmly facing the challenge."
"Struggling for their dreams."
"They are fashionable yet classic."
"Never perturbed by new trends."
"Yet extend popular tastes to eternity."
"They are hardened yet tender, knowing how to fight for what they want, and know the true pleasures of life. We believe that there are multiple dimensions to men, allowing them to perfectly express the versatility of a man's every role. Using their mortal bodies to create extraordinary achievements."
"That is Men!"
"Men with more than one dimension!"
"True Men that are worthy of our salute!"
Zhang Ye was done.
Liu Qian was already speechless as she looked at Zhang Ye in shock.
Although Zhang Shuang knew of her brother's literary talent, but to hear her brother nonchalantly produce such a classic and long advertisement tag made her fail to hide her excitement!
"Alright! Too good!" Zhang Shuang stood up. "Let's not even talk about our blogshop, with this advertisement, even amongst all the shops on the online sales platform, it is definitely the best. This phrase alone is not a problem for a TV advertisement. It's so high-end!"
It wasn't a problem for a TV advertisement?
This was actually a TV advertisement.
Zhang Ye smiled and did not say a word. This advertisement was actually his world's "Septwolves" men clothing's advertisement. When Zhang Ye watched television, he had heard it numerous times. He always found it quite good, and decided to use it for his sister. Good stuff shouldn't be shared with outsiders after all.
By the side, Liu Qian already looked at Zhang Ye in a different light. This brother of Zhang Shuang had thrown out such an advertisement tag without a single thought. It had truly stunned Liu Qian. How f**king talented are you in literature to be able to throw out such an excellent advertisement without any thought? Holy sh*t, what does this dude do? An advertising professional?
