With a new fake Apple news site, two TBWA\Chiat\Day veterans bite the hand that fed them
A sampling of the headlines from Scoopertino, the "insanely funny" fake news site that launched Tuesday:
The site may not be quite up to the standards of The Onion it aspires to, but it does have its moments.
Here, for example, is how the mind-control app works: You think of something you'd like to do, and if Apple agrees with your thought, the process is initiated.
Scoopertino is the brainchild of Michael Rylander and Ken Segall, two ad guys whose ties to Apple (AAPL) go way back. They were both part of the TBWA\Chiat\Day team that created Apple's 1997 Think Different campaign, and Segall was the creative director who came up with the name "iMac."
