Met Life, say it isn’t so.
You’re dropping Peanuts as the spokes characters for your brand?
Snoopy and the gang can sell anything…plus, your timing couldn’t be worse.
The popular comic just released a new feature film, and a weekly cartoon series is coming to television at the end of the year. Not to mention a new book (that I wrote) which is being released November 1st.

We are living in the age of the TV spokesperson.

An update on my recent pasta post…
Those stylin’ shells have been spied on the shelves!
The pasta packaging without compare was on display in a grocery store in Toronto.
Thanks for the pic! (I’ll take one of each.)

I am also hungry.
