Anti-Capitalist Capitalism

Posted: Sep 22, 2009 11:55 AM

Last night, Esquire sponsored the premiere Micheal Moore's new movie, "Capitalism: A Love Story." According to one advertising executive who attended, Esquire shuttled the attendees from the movie theater to the afterparty, which included "a fully decadent penthouse where every square inch is paid for by a luxury sponsor. Hot tub, $120k pool table, $60k home theater, fine food." The executive concluded:

I had fun….But ooooh the irony. Everyone I talked to was like, “man, this is the most bizarre combination. I bet Michael Moore would freak out if he saw that this was happening.”….And then he showed up. And was eating it up. And then one of the families from the film came.
