There are do-overs and make-overs, but one of the most stealth ads, “GAP as FUBU,” was maybe one of the greatest get-overs. We wonder if this campaign is studied by advertising students today? Well, if not in marketing classes, hopefully in entrepreneurship classes.
How easy is this? Sometimes the little guy triumphs.

“The measure of our health as a community may reside in our ability to stand in awe of what the poor have to carry rather than stand in judgement of how they carry it.”
-Father Boyle (speaking at Lemoyne College)
Father Gregory Boyd spoke at Lemoyne College last night to about promoting justice and using acts of service to help heal our society. He is the founder and executive director of Homeboy Industries, which is based in California. His talk, which centered on anecdotes from his work with former gang members, was attended by community leaders, philanthropists, academicians, non-profit heads, and elected officials.
Here is a previous TED talk he gave about compassion.
The endowment of Syracuse University increased by 12.3% (source Chronicle of Higher Education, 8/21/2015).
The Comedy’s Best Kept Secret Tour blew into The Syracuse Funnybone on Thursday and marked the return of comedic native son, Dan Frigolette. Also on the bill were Rell Battle (Comedy Central, Key and Peele) and newcomer (to Syracuse) Matt Richards.
So far the tour has logged nearly 7,000 miles, landing in 52 cities for 66 shows (including Canada and Alaska). No topic for the Syracuse leg of the tour (which added Travis Blunt) as the comics went in on Bill Cosby, crazy politicians who choose to swim in Onondaga lake, social media etiquette, Ebola virus, re-defining ladies night, and life on the road.
We are hoping Frigolette will soon unleash the behind the scenes video footage, which has to be a cross between “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and “National Lampoon’s Vacation.”
