Kevin Bacon and Friends
I received an email with the subject line “Kevin Bacon Invites You to Join Six Degrees.”
The body of the message was indeed such an invite, which describes Six Degrees as “a program which makes it easy for you to raise awareness and support for a charity that’s important to you.” So far, so good.
Then the pitch: “You may recognize some of my friends who have already joined me: Kyra Sedgwick, Jessica Simpson, Ashley Judd, Dana Delany, Jane Kaczmarek, Bradley Whitford, Kanye West, Rosie O’Donnell, and Nicole Kidman.”
Clearly, they have not done their market research very effectively if that thought this was somehow going to persuade me . . .
