Accenture Drops Tiger Woods From Advertising Campaigns, Signs Still Remain

As Tiger wood’s private life remaining a daily distraction topic on Tv talk shows and website,Accenture applied in less than one week the basic principles of public relations damage control.

First, as they wanted him to completely disappear, they litterally ordered all employees to tear down all the posters that say” We Know what it takes to be a good Tiger” and replaced by an anonymous skier on the company’s website homepage.

By Monday Afternoon, any visible Tiger Wood’s poster was removed by staff members in their New York office.The next day marketing and communication employees around the world were asked to “dump” any remaining Tiger-emblazoned poster.

Accenture’s spokesman said they didnt tell all of its 177 000 employees to dump their Tiger’s Tshirts, caps, and cheap souvenir away but the company’s intention is to ensure they are no longer using it internally or externally.That meant telling staff members in a e-mail message to review their pitchs and slides shows to ensure that they no longer include Tiger Wood.

On Sunday the company proclaimed that Mr Woods was no longer the right representative for its advertising and began scrubbing his name away even though, ironnically, Tiger Woods was selected wednesday as Athlete of the Decade by U.S sports editors.

Howard not dating Henson

November 5, 2009
2009 Soul Train Awards - Show
Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard perform at the 2009 Soul Train Awards at the Georgia World Congress Center on November 3, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia


The man – really tries too hard to be seen as a pussy hound- has dismissed rumors he’s dating actress Taraji P. Henson insisting he’s been friends with Henson too long to consider a romantic relationship with her.He told Usmagazine.com, “I’ve known her too long. She knows what I’m thinking.”I heard him do a phone-in interview on the radio a year or two ago and every now and then the host would ask him a question and he wouldn’t respond. When the host repeated the question, Howard would say, “Sorry. There are some FINE ladies walking past here and I got distracted.” This happened about four times in less than ten minutesa and it reeked of desperation. I’ve never heard of anyone who couldn’t make it through an interview because they were so distracted by some hot body walking past.

Sarah Palin to appear on Oprah

October 21, 2009

Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice-presidential candidate on Oprah November 16th- big hot fuck*ng mess.Hands down for sure its a public relations scheme as she’ll appear just the day before publication of her memoir, Going Rogue: An American Life.At the end of last year, Winfrey said she had invited Palin to appear and

she didn’t talk to me. But maybe she’ll talk to me now that she has a book deal

Unsuprisingly,the book is already ranked second on Amazon’s bestseller list, kept from the top spot by a new Stephen King novel. Bad- mouthing US commentators have speculated that recent weak ratings for Winfrey’s show could have been caused in part by her support for Obama alienating conservative viewers.

Beautiful piece of Art : this is what happens when you put two of the most creative thinkers in entertainment in a room and lock the door for a few days.Spike Jonze understood perfectly how to portray  egomaniacal artist Kanye West- and render him with some fragility, we ‘re thrown into a place where we could only  understand, pardon,give him credits.We’re touched emotionally,we all battle with ourselves.

update : Kanye West has apologised to fans after he removed the video directed by Spike Jonze from his website.West’s blog says: “Sorry I had to take it down.” It is not known why the video was removed.
