Greenwich Mutiny asks:

Now I know this isn’t strictly Greenwich talk, but I would be interested to know what you think of it???

The Phantom replies

I love it. It speaks to the youth of today in a fresh and exciting voice, one that the kids will understand.

No – just joshing there, folks.

I suspect the story goes like this. Design company is paid up-front for the job and clears off to the Bahamas for six months. The night before they have to hand in their grand idea, they hit a blank. Nothing’s coming. They try idea after idea, but it all just gets crumpled up into the bin. There’s nothing for it, they’ll just have to hit the bottle. They get horribly drunk and end up throwing up, before falling into a drunken stupor, slumped across the desk. The next morning, they have no choice but to drag something out of the basket unfold it and hand it in…

With enough bullshit you can convince anyone of anything.

Personally I think it smacks of old people desperately trying to appeal to what they think ‘ the youngsters’ will want.

Any one out there actually like it?

  1. It depends on how you look at it and wherever you might be coming from on the subject really. In the long run attractiveness is in the eye of the beholder, but I’m with you on this one.
