‘How to Lose Friends’ & the NYC Media Dreamworld

Share Button

The new international trailer for How To Lose Friends and Alienate People begins with Movie Voiceover Guy taunting as that “there’s a world you will never experience, full of parties you will never enjoy, inhabited by people you will never know.” Well we have experienced that world (kind of), and we have enjoyed those parties (not really) and we do know those people (we’ve seen them around). Either way, the trailer makes working for a major New York magazine seem like a slapstick comedy, when in fact it feels more like you’re caught in an experimental student film.
