Photo Shoot

I get it. Trump is a bastard. But The New York Times is a newspaper, not People Magazine. This image appeared on the front page, above the fold today.

The caption tells us that this Muslim girl is studying at her family's home in the Bronx.

What it doesn't tell us is why she chooses to have such a menacing image of Trump, the current front runner and leading Islamophobic on the screen while she studies.

Photoshop or photo staging, this is shoddy journalism. Total bullshit.

I think Old Spice guy would agree with me; the respectable kind of swagger is the kind that isn't announced on your license plate.

Swag on, Swagmaster.

Smug, Thy Name is Nespresso

DeVito, one of my least favorite actors. And Clooney. Meh.

"Why don't you like DeVito? He's great!"

That's your opinion.

Those smiles. Must've been a nice paycheck. Clooney doesn't get out and shill for less than a ton of money. But pair him with DeVito? Must be the supercool guy and the dorky sidekick routine.

According to Agency Spy,  "George Clooney has been starring in Nespresso ads internationally for nearly a decade but is just now finally making his debut for the brand in the U.S., in a new ad from McCann New York entitled “Training Day” which also stars Danny DeVito."

(You can see the video at the above link. I'm too lazy to embed right now.)

Big name American actors, too cool to tarnish their images stateside, have no qualms about collecting ad dollars overseas. Guess Clooney realized there's this new thing called the Internet that has blown his cover. Might as well go full-bore pitchman now.
