A senior Rolls source told PR Week: “It's not something we've done in the UK before, but we'd be very interested in hearing any ideas from agencies.”

Rolls describes the Ghost as showcasing a “more contemporary, modern and cool” side to the brand.

Some clowns, only a few weeks

Some clowns, only a few weeks back, HP2-Z23 were guffing about Tesla being the rebirth of the US auto industry, a paradigm shift, a milestone equivalent to Microsoft's founding and kickstarting of the PC HP2-Q06 computer industry or Google and Internet 2.0. All utter guff. It was just another bling, flotsam and jetsam bauble for the look-at-me American craperati to feed their egos and HP2-K33 earth-saving cred.

I work in PR. I used to work in the car industry. I am rolling on the floor in hysterics at this.
