2nd ad of campaign: he's doggystyling a bear.

(click ad to read copy)
JESUS, corporate firms are fucking obsessed with the wild kingdom, ain't they? Meet Michael Platt, CEO and founder of BlueCrest Capital. I don't know the lion's name. The ad is for the the Chicago Mercantile Exchange/Chicago Board of Trade. Blah blah blah, who fucking cares. Back to the photo. I am actually trying very hard right now to visualize the lion biting Platt's head off while simultaneously clawing his balls. Seriously, what fucking arrogance from this pot-bellied, manicured douchebag. He probably screams in fear at cockroaches. "A risk tamed is a reward captured?" Give this pansy a sword and shield, and throw him in the middle of the Coliseum with a few unfed beast kings. Televise it during trading hours (with a streaming ticker), so's we can watch his company's stock plunge as he's mauled to pieces.

previously in CEOs:
1. CE-O what a mistake.
2. The Deutsch/Trump 69.
3. Blamer, Fudge do lunch.
4. Michael Golden, CEO, Smith & Wesson.
5. How did Air France become #1 in Europe?

Was anybody else confused as to who and what was being advertised? Seems like a weird strategy to highlight the CEO (name and photograph), a quote and name of a company (twice) of a company other than the one who's ad this belongs to. I didn't get it till the end that CME Group is the advertiser, not smug-faced Michael Platt & BlueCrest.

um, I don't know. I deal with futures traders. I think they'd eat both the cockroach and the lion.

BlueCrest manages some big, profitable hedge funds out of the UK. This smacks of hubris.
