Panlogic launches virtual voodoo attack on Terry Henry to ensure victory this Sunday

Digital marketing consultancy Panlogic has built an online Va Va Voodoo Doll, available at, to curse the Clio-driving, garlic-munching goal getter that is Thierry Henry. At this site the user may stick his/her pins into the (hopefully) ill-fated Henry to stop him from scoring this Sunday.

Says Oliver Christie, Panlogic’s creative director:” We built this Va Va Voodoo Doll to follow up from the success of the World Cup 2000 voodoo dolls we did for Batistuta and Ronaldo. These both worked a treat, because Batistuta had a shocker and was substituted and Ronaldo failed to score (about the only match he didn't score).”

Much cleaner and humane than raising the dead or killing a chicken in your own cul-de-sac, users accessing the site are greeted by a picture of Henry, accompanied by the following copy: “Cast your spell. Terry Henry – annoyingly good, Camembert munching, garlic-honking, froggy goal getter. He’s a bit useful. So we need you to curse the Clio-driving good before he can va-va voom our penalty area.”

Once in the site, users are invited to drag needles into the dirty frog’s body and hear his pain – and, man, does it feels good. Turn the volume up load to hear him scream, in that charming Gallic dialect of his: “Zis is worse zan your fisssh and chiiips”, and “Why don’t you steeeeck garlick up your derriere?”

Panlogic is a digital marketing agency concentrating on building online brands. The agency is split into two main parts: a strategic arm that develops online marketing strategies and an implementation division that delivers search engine marketing techniques. It’s clients include: Tesco, BBC, Mothercare, Vodaone, Sony Ericcson and B&Q. This project, however, has no client or business strategy attached; it’s purely an opportunity to have a go at the French and a public exercise in clutching at straws.
