Page A3: Cut Flowers

A couple days ago, Laura Fields and I opened The New York Times to discover the best juxtaposition between an international story and an ad for Tiffany that we’ve seen in quite a while.


On the left, “Brazil, Alarmed, Reconsiders Policy on Climate Change” — a story about Brazil’s slow awakening to deforestation in the Amazon. On the right, “Cut Flowers.”



A small joy; but to those of us who are watching, notable.

Not as poignant, but related.

For some reason I was reminded of the filmBlood Diamond when I first saw the image. Those happy accidents always put a little smile on my face. Armin's link was very enjoyable as well.

($49,000? I'd like to make that in one year!)

Does Tiffany's not really care if this sort of thing happens? It's a total turnoff for their product imo. Is this totally unavoidable?

eric’s comment is:

Tiffany's normally pays a premium in the dailies they advertise in to get a specific placement, which stays the same every day. So it must not matter so much to them what news they are placed next to, so long as they get their same spot every day.
