“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.”
- Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943
That was the quote that will go down in history as one of the dumbest comments of all time. I say one of, because approximately 10 months ago, I wrote a ranting post on this very website saying how Kate Upton was overrated and did not deserve to be known as the hottest girl in the world. For every day of the last 10 months, those words have been haunting me, as Upton has been everywhere looking better by the day. This ad is no exception. Marketers, take notice: As Always, all you need to do, again, ALL YOU NEED TO DO, is put a hot girl in an ad. It will do better than anything else you try. Every time. Now I need to cut this post short as I rent a car and begin driving the 65 miles to the closest Carl’s Jr.
