News, but not the serious kind
Are you wearing an AWNING, Lamar?
Okay marketing staff, we’re riding the wave now!
Our recent decision to sell more fashions by inventing new items and creating a demand for them has paid off in solid gold with the Rube Tube and the Skanktop, but we’re not stopping there.
Ladies and gentlemen, I now give you the first wearable art.
It’s a colorful piece of canvas for men, with lots of straps and buckles, and you can wear it, sleep under it or hang it on the wall.
That’s great, Boss. What are we calling it?
Well Lamar, it’s canvas apparel for men, so we’re calling it The Manvas!
Boss, you must be a GENIUS to think of stuff like that! So what does it do?
What does it DO, Lamar? It sells for $499!
Guys can wear it when they go out, and when they’re at home they can strap it up on the wall for decoration!
But Boss, some guys don’t care much about art.
Oh, they’ll care about it if it has straps and buckles, Lamar. Trust me.
Now, the key thing is we need to get some famous guys to be seen in Manvases, so regular guys will think they need to get one. Lamar, are there any celebs who will walk around in a a thing like this?
Uh, you could offer a couple of bucks to the British royal family. Maybe Prince Harry?
Good idea, Lamar. Send Harry a Manvas and a $100 Starbucks card.
