How Cool Brands Stay Hot: Bergh and Behrer draw on their collective brand management experience with MTV, H&M, and other youth-oriented marketers to explain what drives Generation Y (teens and twenty-somethings). Also known as the millennials and Generation Next, consumers in this segment do not just do what advertisers tell them. Instead, they rely on the collective wisdom of their peers, and get their buying cues from social networking. The authors sum up the winning attributes of a hot youth brand with the acronym "CRUSH" ("Coolness; Realness; Uniqueness; Self-identification with the brand; and Happiness").
