Kodak's "printer gets whacked" commercial and other celebrity fun
Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE EK) has been having fun with their connections to the Celebrity Apprentice TV show. With their EasyShare All-in-one inkjet printer featured as the object of one of the show's team competitions in a January episode, and exposing Gene Simmons' passion for "a Kodak world" (see "Show Biz and the printing and imaging industry"), the company has put together a Simmons-inspired "Kodak World" web site, including celebrity testimonials and a commercial where Vincent Pastore (above, center), reprising his The Sopranos role, "takes out" an older all-in-one from a "leading maker", and brings a new Kodak into the family.
Gizmodo featured the commercial in a recent post with some great printer-related comments, worth checking out.
