Read this and weep/cringe/spew/laugh …

It should be an April Fool’s joke, but instead it’s just another example of a brand that has become a joke.

[Seems being an arse is the new marketing trend for 09, pioneered by these tossers!]

A scale of stupidity not seen since Mr Ratner’s rather unfortunate prawn sandwich declaration. Simply astounding.

Comment by Lee Hill

But surely Owen Wilson had to take off his Rolex to slit his wrists in the first place?
This is awful and cringe inducing, I love it. 🙂

I hate to use such a cliche’d internet phrase but:

Oh My Fucking God!
That is so beyond bad its funny. At least the PR company will have one easy redundancy decision to make.

I forgot to thank Ella for putting me onto this. She is the journalist sniper par excellence …

I assume Owen Wilson wasn’t consulted on this press release before it was released so couldn’t he sue Rolex for libel?

If I’d known it had been in the Guardian, I wouldn’t have blogged about it myself – but then I don’t read that sort of thing.

i think we should sue rolex for keeping that talentless floppy haired blonde twat alive. ive not read shit like this since billys cv

Comment by andy@cynic

if rolex really does save people’s lives, perhaps they need to head to gaza and see how they can help out there. or maybe sudan, somalia or sri lanka. who knows what a watch like rolex could do with all those desperate people.

Just finished a rant on this. Its unbelievable.

Good idea though Lauren. Lets send the writer of this to the Gaza Strip with a US flag strapped to their head.
