Al Gore’s Name Missing From Posters Advertising His 'Inconvenient Truth' Movie
Every now and then, a storyline for an article hits you that it is so comical it makes it difficult to type between the laughter. This is one of them.
Drudge is reporting (hat tip from reader Sarcasmo) that former vice president Al Gore’s name has been omitted from the posters that advertise his new film: “Former Vice President Al Gore's name is nowhere to be found on PARAMOUNT's poster campaign for the new 'global warming' movie 'AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH.'"
Stopped laughing yet? Well, here’s another punch line: “‘It's not a political movie,’ a top source at PARAMOUNT explained, offering no other explanation on why Gore's name does not appear, even in the film's credits on the poster.”
That’s worth a replay, isn’t it (emphasis mine): “It’s not a political movie.”
I really love that line.
Ready for another hoot? Are you sure? Here goes: “A rival studio executive claims marketing research showed little audience interest in a movie starring Al Gore.”
Now that's an inconvenient truth! Of course, maybe Paramount didn’t count all the swinging, dangling, and hanging chads before it came to this conclusion.
