On February 15, Times of India Film Awards flack Laura Ballance said:
About 35,000 tickets for the April 6 awards ceremony at B.C. Place went up for grabs Friday morning at 8 a.m. — and by 4 p.m. only a few single tickets remained. …We’re virtually sold out.
April 5, CKNW reported the latest version from Laura Ballance:
When 20,000 tickets were offered in February, they were snapped up but she says since then, they’ve reconfigured the stage and seating plan… People can go in and get tickets at the different ranges…
Now, I have a choice to believe TOIFA about a near sell-out crowd or to believe the ticket broker who said they’ll “be papering the place.”
Well, Kingsley Bailey never lied to me before.
Advertising man par excellence Terry O’Reilly on his wonderful CBC program Age of Persuasion, said this:
A generation ago, one of the greats of the Ad business, Bob Levenson, wrote perhaps the most remarkable–and least-celebrated–ads in history.
Titled “Do This Or Die”, it was both a manifesto and a warning to the Ad Industry. “It was a plea for candour and intelligence among advertisers, and for authentic dialogue with consumers.”
That week on The Age of Persuasion, Terry O’Reilly explained why today’s advertisers ignore this plea at their peril. Christy Clark’s team should have been paying attention.
