Andrea was stumped.
She’d been given over a week to come up with a catchphrase for their new client, Pinterest. And although she’d spent the vast majority of that time messing around on Pinterest, she had nothing when it came to a catchphrase.
So she went into the meeting with only five last-minute ideas she’d scribbled down in her notebook and decided she’d let the Pinterest people pick which one they liked best–which one they’d “pin”, if you will:
Pinterest: PUN INTENDED
Pinterest: All The Fun Of Pinboards Without The Puncture Wounds!
Pinterest: Let The World Know What Type Of Jell-O Molds You Like
Pinterest: Millions of “Pinheads” Can’t Be Wrong
Pinterest: By George, I Think You’ve Pinned It! (This one would feature either a cartoon George Washington or an actor dressed like him).
It didn’t take long for the Pinterest people to come to a unanimous decision.
They all agreed Andrea and her firm should be fired immediately.
