New marketing director Kyle Ramsey stood up in the conference room. “I have a brilliant new marketing campaign. Considering 90% of our product is purchased by white people, from now on, we will market exclusively to white people. We’ll save millions!”
His colleagues stared at him, aghast.
Kyle started to sweat.
Then one woman smiled. “Ah, I see. This is an April Fool’s joke.”
Kyle looked at the date. Oh, thank God. “You got me! Haha, April Fools! Meeting over!” The others laughed dutifully. Kyle quickly closed the PowerPoint detailing his manically ill-conceived marketing campaign and fled the room.

Close thing. Most radical marketing ideas bear second scrutiny.

Bahaha the one day of the year you should present hair-brained schemes and get away with it. Very clever take! 😂

That was my thought exactly! Save up the most questionable suggestions for April 1, just in case…
April 1st, 2016 at 7:46 am
Haha, thank goodness it was just a joke.

At least he saw the error of his ways before April 2. 😉 Well done.

Perhaps we all have a April 1st moment, sadly usually it happens on a different date. Well written

Donal Trump is getting away with his white only marketing plan on all days. God save us. Good story.

Good thing it was April Fool’s day, or he would have been looking for another job, 🙂 unless of course the conference table was filled with white supremacists. 🙂 Have a happy April’s Fool’s day to you, too, David. Hey, have you heard who has moved/or in the process of moving, to my neck of the woods? Actor, Johnny Depp. No fooling. 🙂 I shared the article on my Facebook page. He’s moved to Greeley, just a half hour east of my town of Loveland. My daughter lives out there.

Hmmm… some “jokes” go over better than others…

Oh, you fooled me! April Fool’s, David. Did you play any jokes today? Great story. He picked a good day to embarrass himself.

Lucky him. I’ve seen some commercials that should have been stopped at the beginning and unfortunately weren’t. Well done, David. 🙂 — Suzanne
