I ran across this today: Produce Paradise:
No, it’s not to the tune of Gangsta’s Paradise — would sound a lot better if it were — but anyway the point I’m making here is that the idiots at the A&P supermarket chain are suing the kids that made the video, have both worked at an A&P for several years, and even got permission from the local store before taping. You can barely even see anything that says A&P on it!
Are those executives extra-extra-stupid or what?? Here’s how it’s going to shake out. There will be loads of good publicity for the boys (culminating with an appearance on whatever late night talk show wins the battle for them — I’m guessing Leno, but Letterman could pull it off), and negative backlash for the idiots at A&P. At least one of the idiot suits will lose their job, the suit will be dropped, and, if A&P gets unstupid in a big hurry, they’ll hire the boys to appear in their commercials, to try to stem the unofficial consumer boycott.
Upper management all over the country is rushing to cash in on all the new net technologies and trends — and they ALWAYS ending up fritzing it up, don’t they?
Why is that?
