The Fourth of July provides an opporutntiy to reflect on where you are as an individual within the context of all of the sacrifices and good times shared by Americans past and present. One of those rare opportunities to appreciate America in general, it comes down to one word: Freedom.

@dough It's a perception issue, not one of legal employer-employee relationship. :) Doug, come over, we can discuss over a drink.

@dough Perhaps, but perhaps not. Two notes: 1) As a potentially temporary spokesperson, is he really an employee? Technically, yes, but... 2) What if he was hired by Doe-Anderson, Maker’s 40-year-and-counting advertising agency of record. (http://www.doeanderson.com/)

@marksherrick Fair enough. For what it's worth, it was the combination of Maker's Mark (a brand I enjoy) and Jimmy that got me posting. As some proof at face value, here's a picture of a receipt I took of an excessively priced Maker's Mark Manhattan at Bar Dupont in Washington, DC in May. $16.50... absurd for the location. https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/1I6SLmoNcxoeZQifRzJ6ytzJjJJG0T6Z2-F6ZV3wxoE?feat=directlink

@marksherrick Mark, that's the thing, I love Jimmy and watch Late Night when it's on. My issue is solely with the script. I wonder if there is another dynamic worth exploring... whether the average consumer in their target demographic would recognize his voice. If not, why pay the premium for him? If so, does the position in the post above hold weight?
