But it made you think, didn't it? Something different for a commecial. Now, if you toss in some punctuation, you could say:

Think "different."

Which would be a grammatically correct imperative insisting that "differentness" come to mind when you engage with the product so-sloganed. But sometimes you just gotta break the rules (which that slogan does, figuratively and literally). I mean, how cool would Star Trek have been if Kirk said:

To go, boldy, where no man has gone before

If you're gonna have a cult classic, sometimes you just gotta split an infinitive.

My vote for worst slogan? "Welcome to the Social"
