Hallelujah, It's Raining American IOUs!
To promote its clothing line, fledgling brand NEWYORKESE poured American dollars* onto attendees of Pitti Immagine Uomo, a major fashion event.
The dollars featured the NEWYORKESE logo and the phrase "Tu vuo fa l'americano ma si Made in Italy" -- "you want to be American, but you were Made in Italy" -- the title of a song by Renato Carosone.
CEO Gianfilippo Fontana of NEWYORKESE called the effort part of a "low budget advertising campaign." She added, "Thankfully the dollar exchange was very affordable."
Don't thank us, honey. Thank the Big Man in Office.
* Never mind that the dollar is worth less to the Europeans than Sarkozy's back hair.
