Circuit City has apologized for their temporary hissy fit over Mad Magazine‘s “Sucker City” ad parody and will begin selling America’s favorite pre-teen humor magazine once again.
Best part is quote from the press-release whereby Circuit City proves it somewhere has a sense of a humor:
As a gesture of our apology and deep respect for the folks at MAD Magazine, we are creating a cross-departmental task force to study the importance of humor in the corporate workplace and expect the resulting Powerpoint presentation to top out at least 300 pages, chock full of charts, graphs and company action plans.
In addition I have offered to send the MAD Magazine Editor a $20.00 Circuit City Gift Card, toward the purchase of a Nintendo Wii….if he can find one!
Mad really should send a thank you to Circuit City as this is the first sign of relevance for the magazine in at least 30 years.
Where are you Don Martin when we need you most?
