Frankly, I think they'd be better off pitching Ted Bundy. Its harder to get people jazzed over a guy who's victims you need a super computer to count rather than a guy who's victims can be counted on a couple of hands. Lets face it, mass graves creep most people out...unless they're hard core leftists of course, then mass graves are just all in a day's work.
However, Bundy wasn't found hiding in a hole like a rat either. Advantage Bundy. Hiding in a hole like a rat was just tacky. Tacky, tacky, tacky.
Lets face it, Bundy was a better looking guy than Saddam too. Saddam was never going to make the cover of GQ even on a good day. Saddam
Got to have the look.
Got. To. Be. Hot. -- or you'll never get people like Paris Hilton on board.
So, all factors considered, I have to say HRW is making a strategic blunder here going with the Saddam product over the Bundy product.
Being based in the USA, HRW should have considered the publicity negatives associated with choosing foreign products over domestic ones. Do we really need to outsource like this?
Have we no pride?
Is there not some domestic home grown, true American mass murderer or serial killer somewhere in this great land that has the chops to make it in the big city as HRW's poster boy? Sure there is. You all know him. You all love him. Ted Bundy
