A Word from Our Sponsor:
- Joe Lynn Turner & 10-10-345
- October 4-10; A Bit of Lucre From Lucky Dog
- By Seth Schiesel
- Oct. 11, 1998
- What do Larry Hagman from ”Dallas,” Isabel Sanford from ”The Jeffersons” and Joe Lynn Turner from the rock group Deep Purple have in common?
- They are all dogs. At least, they help play dogs in television commercials for the Lucky Dog Phone Company, the first brand AT&T has created in its 113-year history that does not actually mention AT&T.
- There is a good reason for that. Since 1885, AT&T, the nation’s largest communications company, has built an image based on trust, reliability, convenience and a sense of community (as in ”Reach out and touch someone”).
- But the Lucky Dog campaign, which supports a new calling service called 10-10-345, is based on, well, good old greed.
- Every day, AT&T will give away 345 prizes to people who use the service, plus a $1 million grand prize in January. Its market research found that people who like to save money with flat-rate services like Lucky Dog (a dime a minute, a dime to connect) also like sweepstakes.
- The research may also have discovered something else: that a phone call is a basic consumer product rather than a high-tech way to improve someone’s life. Maybe that is why the AT&T executive who invented Lucky Dog used to market Diet Pepsi.
- For the record, Mr. Hagman is the voice of a bull mastiff, Ms. Sanford a basset hound and Mr. Turner a mutt. SETH SCHIESEL
