You Know You Want It. Too Bad You Can't Have It
Looks like we've got an early contender for Dumbest Press Release of the Week.
Here it is, with a couple of parts bolded for stupidity:
I'm forwarding you this information to inform you of JAMIE FOXX: UNPREDICTABLE TOUR which is coming to Houston soon. Jamie starred as the legendary Ray Charles in the hit movie "Ray" and is also starring the new movie "Dreamgirls," which is in theaters now. Jamie is also a singer, song writer and producer. He's an Oscar Award winner and has received 3 Grammy Award Nominations since the release of his chart-topping album entitled Unpredictable. [...] I'm quite sure that your audiences would love to hear what he has to say about his performances, his life, upcoming projects as well as the tour itself. If you'd like to interview the artist, please give me a call at the number listed below or send me an email. Jamie Foxx Tour hits Houston on Thursday, March 7, 2007; therefore, if you'd like an interview with Jamie. Please contact me at the numbers listed below. However, I cannot guarantee that Jamie's time will permit him being able to do an interview. If something becomes available I will try to fit you in. But, I don't want to give you false hopes of one happening. We have been encouraging all journalists to pick up wire stories or do creative picture driven previews.Alas, our love can never be.
So our readers would most definitely want to read a Jamie Foxx interview, but that's too bad, because it's probably not going to happen? Well, shit, thanks for letting us know. — Keith Plocek
