Nice work if you can get it.

So I was just catching up on my daily reads and I came across a story that just, well it irks me.

Diet Coke has recently hired Jean Paul Gaultier as its Creative Director.  Diet Coke. Jean Paul Gaultier. Creative Director of a beverage company.

Since when does a beverage company require the services of a fashion designer, a couturier no less, to sell its product?

I know that designers and celebrities everywhere are paid ridiculous $$ for collaborative projects but, has the world gone mad?

I don’t know, is it selling out? Or is it simply a case of nice work if you can get it?

Obviously this is not the first time a very talented individual has been hired by a corporation to help sell a product.  But honestly, has the world gone mad?

I guess if I drank Diet Coke, I would probably be the first in line to buy one the Gaultier signature bottles.

Maybe I’ve just been job hunting for too long.  Maybe it’s Monday!

You gotta laugh, right?
