Do you ever have one of those weird moments when someone does something you thought only you did? Sure, Stephen did it as a joke. But I really kept an album of my favorite print ads when I was a teenager. Yes, seriously. I dismantled it to use pieces in some Marketing class projects back in college, but most of it remains intact downstairs in my basement. My husband looked up during Stephen's bit and said, "Jesus, honey, he's you."
Colbert seems a bit surprised that there are no longer unifying ads like we experienced in our youth, so I guess I should have shared my Marketing paper from 1989 with him: "The Demassification of the American Market."
Call me, Stephen. We'll do lunch.
