News, but not the serious kind
Stand up, Mr. Spector. Oh, sorry!
Well, Madison Avenue gets screwed again!
Below, you can see photos of music legend Phil Spector released by corrections officials, without any of his numerous wigs, as he begins a sentence of 19 years to life for the 2003 murder of an actress.
But WAIT! The caption warns that these photos can’t be used for advertising campaigns.
Just suck it up, all you ad agencies champing at the bit to feature a bald, 69-year-old murderer to sell your Dentine or Lucky Charms or whatever.
Sorry, that goes for you guys with the Hair Club for Men advertising account, too.
But here’s what I really like about these photos. As if Spector doesn’t have enough trouble, they add insult to injury by releasing mugshots that show he barely covers the five-foot mark on the wall. Gee thanks, guys!
