"If it was good enough for the Greeks and
Romans, it's good enough for me"
Very funny riff from the Inquirer cracked me up...
. . .
SONY EXEC 1: We haven't got people hating us this week, we need to change
SONY EXEC 2: Yeah, at least three demographics no longer spit when they hear
the name Sony, Something must me done!
SONY EXEC 1: Let's throw parties and kill animals!
SONY EXEC 2: Great, but for what brand?
SONY EXEC 1: Playstation of course.
SONY EXEC 2: Well then, we need topless women and more gore.
SONY EXEC 1: Topless women, check. How about reaching into a goat stomach
and eating offal?
SONY EXEC 2: The goat has to be still warm.
SONY EXEC 1: Of course, this is for the PS3, anything less would just not
SONY EXEC 2: Brilliant plan, I'll sign off on it, but we need to take lots
of glossy pics for our official magazine, parents don't hate us enough, so
we should traumatise their kids a little too.
SONY EXEC 1: Can we distribute a rootkit on the cover CD?
SONY EXEC 2: Legal says we can't use that trick for another seven months.
SONY EXEC 1: Pity.
Less spectacularly stupid, but still a head-slapper: last week Sony co-opted a lot of Berlin street artists into making fake PSP street art, opened a fake "art gallery" of PSP "art," and sprayed a buncha stencils on the sidewalk hyping the PSP.
