Although this is showing up all over the internet, this is an example of real fake news. The originator of this doctored the original sign, which said “annually.” Which means the fake newser, appropriately, is an asshole.
But no more (Via BuzzFeed):
Companies and firms who used to recruit from presidential administrations and brag when they were successful in poaching an aide are making the calculation that the risks of bringing on a Trump administration official outweigh the rewards, according to interviews with 10 current and former administration officials, top recruiters, and lobbyists who did not want to be named to talk candidly. BuzzFeed News reached out to them after previously reporting during an especially chaotic stretch for the Trump White House that some officials were trying to leave but finding their job prospects to be “pretty bleak.” That’s especially pronounced for more junior staff.
The leadership at a prominent, bipartisan Washington public affairs firm went as far as to make an active decision not to hire from the Trump White House because of the “reputational risk” associated with it, a former White House official was recently told. The official asked BuzzFeed News not to disclose the name of the firm.
In another case, a White House official said he was rejected out of the blue for a job after being given indications he would be hired and was explicitly told his affiliation with the Trump White House had been a problem for some at the company.
Honestly, if you owned a PR firm, would you want Ellie Mae Huckabee or the Mooch or Bullshit Barbie Conway or Sean “Biggest Crowd Ever, Period” Easter Bunny trying to convince people that everything they say isn’t a damn lie? Their only hope is if Fox News plans a massive expansion.
Since I rarely watch broadcast television, I didn’t know this Pepsi ad existed until today. (And Pink was the best.)
OK, people. I didn’t know this was a thing:
You have to have a famous football player tell you NOT TO EAT TIDE PODS? Why would anyone eat laundry detergent?
That’s like saying, “Don’t look at the sun” during a solar eclipse. I mean who’s stupid enough to do that?
DIdn’t notice that, did you?
I don’t know if this is an ad or a joke. But Ad Week says it’s an ad:
Ad parody master Mike Diva finally got a chance to make a real commercial, and it’s as insane as you’d expect. In a good way.
Diva (real name: Mike Dahlquist) is well known for having made unflattering but undeniably entertaining parody ads for Donald Trump and Hillary Clintonin the last election, along with other weird stuff like this satanic Furby spot.
Now, he’s been hired by Halo Top ice cream—an ascendant brand that’s already shown something of a fondness for offbeat advertising—to produce a Kubrick-like meditation on the forthcoming robot enslavement of humans, and ice cream’s brutal role in early communication between the two sides.
