September has been a month of bloopers. While I shudder to think that Kanye’s mishap at the MVA Awards was nothing but a publicity stunt, topped off with an appearance on the debut Jay Leno Show and the all-too-familiar celebrity outcry ~ I gotta get away for a while ~ something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
While it’s fun to see the US President candidly talking about something so mainstream and mundane as the MVA Awards ~ pop culture meets politics ~ I have to question the integrity of the communications department behind this blooper ~ was it really accidentally leaked? The cynic in me wants to know.
While the Kanye and Obama bloopers both prove the theory behind the adage, there’s no such thing as negative publicity, this wasn’t the case for the WWF. The release of their September 11/Tsunami campaign before sign-off prompted an apology posted on their website and left them a little red in the face.
