even better than the real thing



There was a fake New York Times distributed across NYC yesterday. And it only featured dreamy, good news. If you're feeling sad, you can even check out the website. Nothing but good news, all the time.

Gawker gets to the bottom of the stunt, which was pulled off by notorious pranksters the Yes Men. Even the NY Times likes it. Good news, all around.

Nationalizing oil companies? I guess there's no hiding the NY Times love for socialism.

So cool, so creative. You gotta love those Yes Men. I recommend renting their movie (titled The Yes Men) for a different vision of strategic marketing.

It's kinda scary if you read some of these articles. Forcing big box retailers out of poor neighborhoods, nationalizing industry, capping wages. Um, communism?
