First, a Ford named "Alessandro Uzielli"? Come on. Made up. Second, what's his name? At least throw a Ford product name in there like they did for Edsel Ford. We bet in private they call him Thunderbird. Or T-bird. Or T. And what's Thunderbird's job? Product placement. Come on! That's not a job. Well, it's not a hard job.
Thunderbird: We'd like to pay you $10,000 to put a Ford in the show.
Producers: We need a car that won't start.
Thunderbird: That's why I'm here.
Producers: Ah ha! That's why we already picked a Ford.
Thunderbird: Dang it. I guess I'll go back to my 80-foot yacht.
Producers: And we'll go back to hookers and booze.
Thunderbird: Ah ha! That's what I said!
And we think it's a bit disingenuous when Thunderbird says:
"Failure is not an option," Uzielli, 39, told The Detroit News in an interview this week. "We cannot afford to fail. We have to succeed."You can afford. You are richer than rich. It's like Arthur. But no butler. Maybe Thunderbird does have a butler. That'd be cool.
