Ashton Kutcher and that Horrible San Francisco-Based PopChips Company Make the 2012 Fineman PR Blunder List

Monday, December 17th, 2012

All the deets are right here, at FinemanPR.

And there’s a little background on this after the jump.

Ashton, you’re not funny – try something else.

Ashton, your entourage (and also all the Pop Chips people) were afraid to tell you that your skits were not even remotely entertaining. What else didn’t they / don’t they tell you?

Oh, and the reviews are in:

God, Popchips are awful. The flavors suck.”

Popchips SUCK! I can believe I let you weiners influence me into buying a bag of that collossal garbage.”

Pop Chips Snacks are Bad for You – Don’t Eat PopChips – Here’s Why You Should Avoid This Company’s Products

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

That Popchips company thinks it’s funny to have dull-witted spokesmodel / dull-witted investor Ashton Kutcher* do some free YouTube videos only to take them down if they prove too controversial.

All right, Popchips, here’s the thing: The problem with the video wasn’t that it was “controversial.”

The problem was that it was stupid.

Oh, and not funny.

Not funny at all.

Did you all think enough to say something, Popchips people? Something like, “Yeah, Ashton, we know you want to do these videos, but they’re not good.” Oh, you all just thought that, but you didn’t want to actually say anything at the time? Well that’s just not going to fly.

N0w let’s hear from people who actually tried eating the product that Ashton Kutchner wants to make money from:

God, Popchips are awful. The flavors suck.”

Popchips SUCK! I can believe I let you weiners influence me into buying a bag of that collossal garbage.”

And if newfangled Popchips turn out to cause cancer, then you the consumer just might end up dead from buying something that made dull-witted spokesmodel / dull-witted Popchips investor*** Ashton Kutcher ever so slightly richer.

You wouldn’t want that, would you?

*He reminds me of our similarly dull-witted former Mayor Gavin Newsom, for some reason.** Hey, whatever happened to that guy?

**Oh, maybe it was the Fiji Water I was reminded of. Our former Mayor just loved his Fiji Water, of course. I could totally see Gavin becoming a dull-witted spokesmodel / dull-witted investor / Brand Ambassador for the Fiji Water.

***Back in the day, famous actor O.J. Simpson similarly invested in HoneyBaked Ham. You know, because he liked the company. But OJ had the sense to not do stupid commercials for Honeybaked.

Benjamin and Peter Bratt Open the SFIFF with “La Mission” at La Castro

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

The poor devils in the rush line out in front of the Castro Theatre this evening had to face fierce winds while waiting to see if they’d be let in to see La Mission. A sell-out crowd enjoyed the movie as well as bacon bon bons and PopChips at the after party in la mision.

A good time was had by all.
