This “hip” new restaurant in Greenwich Village looks a whole lot like the old Horn & Hardart Automats that were all over Manhattan when I was a kid. Back then, they were populated by old people who would sit around all day over a cup of coffee and perhaps a piece of pie. Now, judging from the picture on the front page, it’s where reasonably attractive girl-next-door types (probably NYU students) congregate.
Anyhoo, I get ideas from time to time that would generate publicity for certain kinds of businesses. I’m going to put hints to some of them up on this blog, in the hopes that people who actually own those kinds of businesses will pay me to walk them through the idea, thereby profiting from the fruit of my massive brain. I’m the guy who thought up the idea to “protest” when Binney and Smith changed eight of their Crayola colors, which sold millions of dollars worth of crayons for them. In 2006, I was the guy who hoaxed the press by pretending to be the winner of the largest-ever Powerball lottery. That one got me on Good Morning, America (I’ve been on the Today Show, Oprah, Lie Detector and tons of other TV shows, too. I’ve also been written about in Time, Life and People magazines as well as the New York Times, The New York Daily News, The New York Post, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.)
Yes, I have a real idea to get press for this “BAMN!” place. If you know the owners, or if you ARE the owners, contact me ASAP. I can give (sell) you an idea that will generate business and publicity for your New Wave Automat.
