The Economist Dumbs Itself Down For Dallas.
(click images) Apparently as part of a new city-by-city, targeted marketing campaign, the smart-as-fuck London magazine, via ad agency BBDO NY, recently invaded Big D with a prissy, branded mechanical bull, plus a billboard sporting the most famous question in Texas state history. I know us Americans are pretty slow on the uptake when it comes to complex economic world issues. But this is just insulting. Hopefully, at the least, the message-draped fake-bull helped some Texans better understand the financial crisis on a physical level (images via).
