If you read the Sunday New York Times, you’ll know that it’s not uncommon for some special interest group to dish out huge dollars for some kind of full page ad in section one. These ads usually have some kind of political, social or religious message.
This week, though, there was a giant ad for a band called V2 (pronounced “V-squared) trumpeting their recent 7-award haul at the Los Angeles Music Awards.
V2 consists of twins Vittorio and Vincenzo. They’re 11 years old.
What the hell is going on here? Who’s bankrolling this?
