Brand Marketers should watch Colbert

Posted by: Burth Helm on February 15, 2007

This brand extension — equal parts irony, humor, and ego — is oddly perfect. Actually, makes me wonder if Bill O’Reilly secretly wishes he had an ice cream brand himself.

True if anyone needs a sense of humour it's advertisers. They should watch the Colbert Report.
