Random stuff about Wellington since 2005

You’re fly-erred

Plenty of Wellingtonians would have spat out their flat whites on Saturday morning when the Dom Post cover revealed that our old friend Terry Serepisos is going to host New Zealand’s version of The Apprentice. As I’m sure you’re all aware, the American version Donald Trump is famous for putting his name on all sorts of ridiculous things:

With his success in real estate and television, Trump has succeeded in marketing the Trump name on a large number of products. These products include Trump Financial (a mortgage firm), Trump Sales and Leasing (residential sales), Trump University (a business education company), Trump Restaurants (Located in Trump Tower and consisting of Trump Buffet, Trump Catering, Trump Ice Cream Parlor, and Trump Bar), GoTrump(an online travel website), Donald J. Trump Signature Collection (a line of menswear, men’s accessories, and watches), Donald Trump The Fragrance (2004), Trump Ice bottled water, Trump Magazine, Trump Golf, Trump Institute, Trump The Game (1989 Board Game), Trump Vodka, and Trump Steaks. In addition, Trump reportedly receives $1.5 million for each one hour presentation he does for the The Learning Annex.

So what this fly wants to know is what products do you see Terry putting his name on? And would you buy them?
