The Evil Step Sisters Strike

Before Cinderella met her Fairy God mother and Prince Charming, she was just a girl who had big dreams. She had her very own Twitter account that she uses to connect with her friends, Snow White, Ariel and Jasmine. She would share with them her hopes and her dreams as well as what her stepsisters are doing to make her life miserable.

One day, while Cinderella was out running errands for her mean stepmother, the evil stepsisters went into Cinderellas small corner room and decided to mess with with her Twitter account.

  1. The first think that the Stepsisters did was to set up and auto response. This started to make people think that the account that they were following is actually a spam account and not actually Cinderella.
  2. Next, they went through all her old tweets and started to repeat them. More and more people started to question the credibility of Cinderella’s Twitter account and unfollowed her because no one likes to see repeated information and tweets.
  3. Next, the three evil stepsisters decided that they wanted to use her account to sell not only their own items but sell Cinderella’s items to obtain a larger profit. People can get very annoyed when all you are doing is selling stuff on Twitter. That is what Craigslist and Ebay are for.
  4. Saying whatever the $&!% you want. They began to post obscenities left, right and center. There are some people that are on Twitter who do not like profanity. These people unfollowed Cinderella fast. They didn’t like to see the f-word all over their timeline and had enough.
  5. The last thing that the evil stepsisters did was claiming other people’s tweets as their own. People do not like and respect those who plagiarize. There is a retweet button for a reason.

The actions that the stepsisters did over the course of a few weeks resulted in a huge drop in number of followers for Cinderella. She felt as if she had no friends and was alone in the world.

The Evil stepsisters took away all credibility that Cinderella had built-up over the past few years. It will probably take her a lot longer to get her credibility back, if ever.

Jack Sparrow, Public Relations Expert

Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean was Disneyland’s famous log fume ride turned movie. Producer extraordinaire, Jerry Bruckheimer took a child’s fantasy ride and created a movie that lasted two hours and grossed over $46.6 million on the first weekend.

Bruckheimer and Johnny Depp brought the main character of Captain Jack Sparrow to the main screen. Sparrow captivated audiences with his wit, charm and his wavering allegiances to both the good side and the bad side. He single-handedly made the pirate look cool again.

See how cool he looks?

The movie franchise went on to create three more movies and grossed over $3.7 billion worldwide.

I just recently decided to watch the movie out of sheer boredness, and after I finished with the first movie, I thought that Captain Jack Sparrow would be a good Vice President of Public Relations for a pirating business (if they had a legit business).

Here are the reasons why:

  1. Knowledge: Sparrow has been a pirate for pretty much all his life. He knows the ins and outs of the trade. He knows what common mistakes that young pirates make and knows the general public perception of pirating. He could possibly use this knowledge to combat peoples pre-determined misconceptions of how pirates act and behave and counter their attacks. There is once scene in particular where he is talking to Captain Norrington and is trying to explain why Norrington should let him go free and actually succeeded.
  2. This brings me to my second point, Captain Jack Sparrow is charismatic. He is able to woo women and charm his way into what he wants. He used his charismatic ways on the rum traders that came to the island he was trapped on. He managed to cop a ride with them back to civilization instead of what people believed his did, which was ride off on sea turtles.
  3. He doesn’t give up. Sparrow always goes for what he wants, whether it be gold or his ship. He commandeered the fastest ship in the Royal Navy just so he could chase his beloved Black Pearl. He always goes after what he want and wont stop until he gets its. Gold is another thing that Sparrow loves and tries at all times to procure more of it. He will do what it takes to get what he wants.
  4. Experience: He might not have any public relations experience but he sure does have a lot of pirating experience to draw upon!

I feel as if all of Sparrow’s qualities are expressed nicely in this video of him by the Lonely Island featuring Michael Bolton:
