From Lord’s oddly brilliant GLA blog:
Last night at Alcohol Wednesday I think we as a group came up with a great idea.
Just think about it. Ninjas are stealthy masters of surprise and subtlety. They can swoop in, in a second, place an advertisement, and be gone just a quick. The sheer speed of their work will boarder almost on subliminal messages. And hell not a lot will make you remember the name of a company like a logo ninja star to the arm. Lawsuit you say? HAHAHA! Need I remind you that ninjas are deadly assassins?
Also it would be awesome when rival companies set their marketing ninjas on each other. I can just see it, another boring day at the office when Steve from accounting (aw, good ol’ Steve from accounting) comes running down the hall yelling, “Ninja fight in the break room! Ninja Fight!” Everybody jumps up from their desks and crowds to the break room to watch as the dexterous death dealers go at it. And inevitably some flunky from HR gets his ass katana-ed but everybody has a big laugh about it later (everybody except the flunky because he is super dead). I just feel that marketing ninjas would make the work place a bit more productive and if not that at least it would keep everybody on their toes.
Well put, Lord. Well put.
I have been advocating the hiring of Marketing Ninjas for years. Welcome to the fold, Grasshopper.
