6797: General Marketing.
Accelerating through the news with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• General Motors reportedly found a buyer for its Hummer brand. Now the automaker is trying to sell Saturn and Saab, in addition to dumping Pontiac. At this point, they might have to go to a singular versus plural form: General Motor.
• The New York Post reported advertising agencies will stick with GM, despite being owed boatloads of money. The shops hope to make the automaker’s court-sanctioned “critical vendors” list, to receive prompt payments while GM rides through bankruptcy. Wonder how many multicultural advertising agencies will make the “critical vendors” roster—versus going into critical condition.
