Props to my advertising friend John Reid

SHACKCNBC
 

My friend John Reid is in advertising. He took a whole Internets worth of heat when his agency took over the Radio Shack account. They crafted a campaign to help make Radio Shack relevant again, culling its focus, branding it The Shack, etc. It wasn't very popular with the blogosphere, and probably not very popular with hip ad types in general. I certainly had my doubts.

Well, I figured it was time to give John Reid his due advertising praise. The Shack is working, Radio Shack is becoming relevant again, they are selling iPhones, and companies want to buy it.

Well done John Reid.
