X YEARS WASTED
A Decade In Exile
 
Page 7 of 7
 

7.AEROFLOT CUSTOMER SERVICE. In one of Aeroflot's many rebrandings, it advertised its new customer service hotline. So we called them up and complained, in a loud annoying American voice, that a passenger sitting next to us in our last flight was farting the entire flight, and that the stewardess wouldn't help, so we wanted our money back.

8.THE MOSCOW TRIBUNE CONSULTANCY. When we first started out, we had two competitors: The Moscow Times and The Moscow Tribune. But the town wasn't enough for the three of us. So, posing as a rep from The Moscow Tribune, we called several PR agencies asking them to help us find a way to get readers to pick up our papers, which collected in stacks on stands. What marketing gimmick could they could offer in order to convince people to pick up our paper? Scratch 'n Sniff? Incredibly enough, every PR agency told us that the Tribune was hopeless, and that marketing couldn't save it.

9.MICHAEL WINES' PIE-BY ATTACK. (See "Ten People Whose Lives We Touched" list.)

10.IKEA PEDOPHILE. Terrified of what the opening of Russia's first IKEA would mean for the Russian soul, we called IKEA's manager to complain that one of their workers molested our child while she was playing in the IKEA playground area. We managed to squeeze a promise out of them for a free toy, meaning even child sex is incredibly cheap at IKEA!
