OK, advertising execs, this one is for free:
I don't know why April Fool's Day isn't a bigger television advertisement day than the Super Bowl. It offers SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES for celebrities and companies to trade millions of dollars, have fun, and get viewers and customers, and it would make television advertising relevant again.
Think about it. First, the companies can hire people that they normally wouldn't - Justin Bieber plugging for the AARP, for example, or LeBron James for Summer's Eve. They can make ludicrous advertisements - ones that are over the top absurd, worthy of Dali. They have a day to compete for viewers and plaudits. Then, the next day, the celebrities claim it was all in good fun, that it wasn't serious, and their brands won't be tarnished. They get paid. The companies get attention, and are known for having a bit of fun at, and for, their own expense. Viewers are glued to their TVs or computers. It's like Will Ferrell doing Old Milwaukee, but for every company that exists. Stars could be born; new companies could come out of nowhere. We could have an award for the best commercials.
God, it makes SO MUCH FARKING SENSE. I need to be in advertising. Someone effing hire me.
Also, the burger at the museum is pretty average, all around. The lettuce tasted incredible - that was the best thing that could be said for it. If I was going to go back, I'd get one of the naan rolls - they looked delicious and didn't take nearly as long to make.
Also, I don't know why they aren't using the atrium to grow produce for their kitchen, though. That's also an obvious thing for them to do, year round. That's TWO FREEBIES IN ONE POST PEOPLE.
