“Accenture surely know what it takes to be a good Tiger”

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.

The Chicago emcee Lupe Fiasco speaks

November 14, 2009
Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival 2009 - Day 3

Lupe Fiasco has been on a tear lately.  Once staunchly on the wrong side of leaks and giveaways, the Chicago emcee who once printed a list of reasons why he’s upset with the current leak-heavy music scene has been releasing a tirade of freestyles via blogs and websites.  The reason for Lupe’s surge in activity can be traced to MTV’s Hottest Emcees list of 2009, and Cornell Westside’s (as he’s been dubbed) absence from the list. But for Lupe, inclusion on MTV’s list wasn’t just about ego or the current standing of Lupe Fiaso. As he told us during an exclusive interview,

“For me, another part was ‘I gotta make that list because the kids have to see that you don’t have to do this to be successful.’ If you look at it and 90% of it is negative, it’s like we gotta have something positive on the list.  That’s not taking shots at anybody.  All those people are my homeboys, but if we come down to the nitty gritty and what’s effecting the streets, you got kids getting beat to death in the streets. You really have to take the responsibility to step up and be like, ‘I have to show my success.  I have to work this hard.  I have to be to be looked at as this top ranked dude and top ranked Emcee.  It’s not because I want the glory and fame, but so kids can have a different role model or choice of role model.’  If we’re excluded from that, the top pop culture thing for Hip Hop is devoid of anything positive, oh naw, we got to go to work.  The conscious backpackers have to go to the club and go to work.”
