Franz Ferdinand Turn Down $50million TV Ad

Recommended Posts

franzferdinand.jpgScottish rockers Franz Ferdinand have snubbed a $50 million offer to appear in an American television advert. The group rejected the lucrative contract, despite promises the publicity would quadruple US sales of their second album YOU COULD HAVE IT SO MUCH BETTER. Frontman ALEX KAPRANOS says, "We'd have been surrendering our integrity it we'd done it."

Excellent work.

I'd like to take a moment to point out that a rewritten article that carries the gist of the original [facts] but doesn't copy any of the original article's wording is in fact not copyright infringement. In that sense we could actually have completely original articles without any linking if we had the time to do that.

Tip: bullshit located BELOW the dash line (---------------) is a SIG that for some strange ass reason pops up on each and every post. :lol::lol:

There's a fine line between integrity and taking yourself and your music too seriously. For me , that line is $234.87.

If I'm not mistaken, I've heard their shitty music playing on commercials before. So I suppose that's ok and not "surrendering their integrity".

You got that right. They should hand all that money back--and give it to people with real integrity--like us. :lol:

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
