The advertising agency, McCann NY, that helped brand companies like Coca-Cola and Mastercard in your brains to make you buy those products:
It’s in this New York agency where some of the most famous brand-building advertising has been developed, whether “I’d like to teach the world to sing” and “Mean Joe Greene” for Coca-Cola, or “I’m Worth It” for L’Oréal, or “It’s everything you always wanted in a beer. And less.” for Miller Lite, or “Priceless” for MasterCard, or “Army Strong” for the U.S. Army.
Now wants you to vote to make the farce of the George Zimmerman case to be “Truth Well Told”, a phrase which they brand themselves with on their website(http://www.mccannny.com/capabilities/), and vote in the Webby Awards for their “A Million Hoodies For Travyon Martin” campaign they threw together:
The nominating information:
links to this video:
which is made up of a collage of videos and audio filled of course with the typical crap we’ve all have seen ad nauseum and even uses the same editing technique that NBC is being sued for to make it appear the NEN call George made that makes it seem like George is the one making race an issue.
You can thank “Daniel Maree at McCann Social Central” and the “team” for the genesis of the million hoodie thing and helping to “sell” the “hoodie” as being significant to the George Zimmerman case as “Truth Well Told”:
“Our co-worker Daniel Maree at McCann Social Central started a partition for Trayvon Martin case on Facebook, linked to Change.org, asking for a million signatures to encourage police action in the case. The team came up with the tag “#millionhoodies” to encourage people to submit their photos of hoodies on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as supports. Also, they organized a rally on March 21 at Union square to get the attentions from the media.
We got the request to build the site 6 hours before the rally started. The idea was to aggregate images, which were tagged with “#millionhoodies”, from different social networks into one place and encourage more people to submit their hoodie photos. Each social media platform has its own APIs and tricks. The challenge was to get the images from different platforms and consolidate them in our database. Our team did a great job, collaborated very well and built site in 12 hours.
Looking at Maree’s twitter it appears he didn’t start in on the case until March 19 with a retweet followed by this tweet:
Unsurprisingly Maree writes in his article “In Florida They Shoot Negroes” http://danmaree.posterous.com/in-florida-they-shoot-negroes, again the same typical race based bullshit we’ve again all have heard ad nauseum in George’s case, even telling us how the words from the movie The Great Debaters; “With violence or civil disobedience. You should pray I choose the latter.” ring in his head and how, of course, the “hoodie” played an important role, got to get that branding in there ay?
Of course Maree “knows” George should have been charged writing; “The authorities must take action and charge Trayvon Martin’s killer. Until then, I won’t be able to stop thinking “in Florida they shoot Negroes.” How does he know? He doesn’t say, nope, not a piece of evidence mentioned aside from the supposed screams of Trayvon; oh and of course that Trayvon was black, was wearing a hoodie, clearly the shooter was not black and George wasn’t charged yet(24 days into the investigation), what more does a black man need to know?
That is the person, Daniel Maree, the company, McCann NY and its “team” who helped inflame the passions of black folks that caused the white folks to run like cowards and ultimately charge George Zimmerman and now supported by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences through its Webby Awards.
So let’s add them all to the list of the many players who got us where we are today so we do not forget how we got here and who to watch in the future when another “black” is the “victim” of a “white”.
Here’s a list of some of the players we’ve come to know in George’s case:
Where’s “our” “Maree” to fight this crap? Where’s “our” “McCann”? “Our” “Julison”?
