To be fair, the BusinessWeek announcement WAS dated Jan 30 - one day after AK threw away her iPhone and stopped using Instagram for good. :lol:

I would expect her handlers to attempt to keep tabs on potential social media gaffes like this one could have been.

She does look great in that suit.

This is what happens when you mix marketing people with technology that they don't understand. Again, I'm very disappointed in adults.

Charlie's scathing reviews on the madness of modern life usually raise a smile. His black mirror fiction series isn't bad either.(new series starting tonight in the uk btw).

This just in.....Justin Timberlake is the new Creative Director for Bud Light Platinum.

Seriously.

I think this is a case of "Those Words Don't Mean What You Think They Mean". Marketing people or CEOs somehow don't know what a Creative Director really is or think general public don't.

What was wrong with just having the personality drink/use the product in your ad?

Hah, missed that one, cynical but amusing!

But this must generate little more than a few extra seconds in the spotlight. Does it really generate more credibility to portray some not even close to the industry to be a "part of the team". Would like to know if it the idea came from the boardroom or the marketing dept.

Nice loogey in the faces of the staff at design department.
