We all know Anderson Cooper is one hell of a journalist, covering everything from Hurricane Katrina to the Haiti eartquake. Well, now he’s got the trend forcasters in an uproar after breaking his forthcoming Nike/Crocs collaboration, no doubt a big part of the reason behind hedge fund Blackstone scarfed up $200 million of the soft and technically edible once-trendy foam shoe’s stock. When we live in a society where advertorial is the future and even the New York Times is jumping whole-heartedly into the native advertising trend, why shouldn’t a hotshot host sign a shoe endorsment? It’s the obvious next step. Anderson dropped his social media Freudian slip with this Twitter post, ostensibly promoting the replay of his wholly unecessary, Putin-esque Just Do It solo dive with the dangerous Nile crocodile:
Watch a terrifying dive with deadly Nike crocodiles. It’ll get your blood pumping. 60minutes tonight http://t.co/14e6sEIBJh
