Brand This Thing
For "Brand This Thing", John is put to the test when he's asked to brand a random object. He unknowingly comes surprisingly close to the object's actual purpose, which is a first for Marketing614. To be fair, how many people have seen a dish towel scarf?
In our Mt. Rushmore segment, John tells us which four brands he'd place on Mt. Rushmore and why he thinks they excel and stand out in the marketing world.
