Nigeria is mad at Sony for its latest ads that suggesting a lot of scams come from the country. Heaven forfend!
In the ad, a corporate rumor-squasher (read: PR spokesbot) responds to a rumor-mongrel’s (read: pudgy gadget blogger) request for comment about a tip he got about a PS3 price-drop. “You can’t believe everything you read on the Internet. Otherwise I’d be a Nigerian millionaire by now.”
In response to this false, defamatory and confidential claim, Nigeria demanded an immediate recant. “Nigeria also demands an unconditional apology from Sony Corporation for this deliberate negative campaign against the country’s image and reputation,” said a spokesman for the Nigerian government.
