My own empire
A few months back ESR-W came back from a trip to Europe with a tearout of a magazine. The tearout was of a fragrance entitled: Jette by Night
I laughed of course being that's my last name and kept it aside for a keepsake.
Well more recently I saw another ad for Jette by Night, but this time for a shower and body gel!
So I decided to look up the product. Lo and behold the product is a huge sensation throughout Europe! No way! Not only is it a fragrance, body and shower gel, but there's also jewelry, clothing, footwear, eyewear and even skates! Crazy!
I found out the designer is a lady named Jette Joop so she named all of her product line after herself (although secretly I think she named the products after me!). In fact, the designer is so popular she throws huge bashes when a new product line is launched!
It's crazy. And since it's a European based company they definitely use sex to sell "my product". Take a look at these hot 'adverts':
I'm thrilled my product is all about the high fashion. Especially the roller skates.
My skates are off the hook!
Obviously it's all one big coincidence that the product line is named after me. But regardless it seems like this "imposture" is making quite a living off using my name. Maybe I'll have to consult my attorneys to get some royalties. I mean she's gotta be raking in millions!
So Ms. Joop or Ms. Jette...or whatever you go by, just remember, as Brooke Astor said: "Money is like manure, it should be spread around."
