POM Wonderful Presents The Greatest Movie Ever Sold
So I've come here a few times to promote films I've produced. I have Morgan Spurlock's POM WONDERFUL PRESENTS THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER SOLD coming out this weekend in theaters across the US. The film has been previously mentioned on MeFi after the premiere at Sundance. It's a documentary about product placement, marketing, and advertising that's funded entirely through product placement, marketing, and advertising. The film is currently sitting at 87% on Rotten Tomatoes, and it's played incredibly well at festivals over the last few months. In the spirit of the film, I'm trying to sell sell sell to get MeFites to see it in theaters this weekend or whenever it comes out in your town.

I wrote Pom Wonderful a letter after I heard a story on NPR about the FTC bringing them to task over health claims for their product. I tried the stuff for the first time just yesterday. It was quite tart and surprisingly cloudy. I was expecting something more along the fruit "juices" I am used to drinking.

I wrote the letter back in September. They answered a couple of weeks ago.

I can't wait to see this film. I imagine it'll be a huge inspiration for people and places to write.

As a person who has a marketing degree and is also a major fan of Adbusters, I must see this. But I'm bedridden. What's the expected DVD release date?

Just heard the NPR piece today and it was great. POM is pretty good stuff, mixes well with good vodkas, but WONDERFUL Pistachios are even better. I'm hooked on them and just made $75 for mentioning them!

Oh boy oh boy, but no East Bay showings? The kabuki in SF it is I guess.

While looking for European release dates, I found this.
Starting 1:00pm yesterday, Wednesday April 27th, Altoona Pennsylvania has been renamed "POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold" for a total period of 60 days.
Morgan Spurlock bought this temporary name change for $25,000.
