GLENVIEW, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- While San Francisco may not have won the trophy tonight, they will be getting a cup... of JELL-O® pudding. Second place is nothing to be ashamed of and JELL-O, one of America's most beloved and iconic brands, along with Ronnie Lott, is honoring the San Francisco football team and its fans with a "Pudding Surprise" event this Tuesday, February 5 in San Francisco.
While all the talk these days is about advertising during the big football game and which team is favored to win, JELL-O is the first to take a different approach and celebrate the runner up. As a continuation of the "Fun Things Up" campaign, which kicked off with JELL-O saving the world from the Mayan apocalypse, the new 30-second TV spot shows JELL-O celebrating the accomplishments of the San Francisco team. The spot premiered following the game and was created by CP+B.
"A successful season is reason enough to celebrate, because even when you lose some, you win some," said Greg Gallagher, Senior Brand Manager, JELL-O, Kraft Foods Group, Inc. "JELL-O has always been about funning things up and we want a put a smile on the town that has its spirits down -- plus nothing masks the bitter taste of defeat like the sweet taste of JELL-O Pudding. There's nowhere else we'd rather be than San Francisco."
"San Francisco should be proud of the team's accomplishments -- we've had a great season," said Ronnie Lott. "I'm thrilled to be working with JELL-O in the city I love, and where I played for years, to remind people to smile, celebrate great moments and have fun!"
On Tuesday, San Francisco residents can meet Ronnie Lott at Broadway and Columbus Ave. at 12:30 PM PST and receive free JELL-O Pudding cups(1). For additional "Pudding Drop" locations and times in San Francisco, please visit www.FunThingsUp.com.
Fans not in the area can visit www.FunThingsUp.com for a JELL-O digital coupon to celebrate(2). And since no one likes being pushed when they're down, San Francisco fans can download a browser plug-in at www.FunThingsUp.com to block any gloating from Baltimore fans.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
