AND NOW, A FEW MINUTES WITH SALLY GRIMES
Vice President of Global Marketing for Sharpie and
The New Sharpie Stainless Steel Spokesmodel
Q: Do you ever work or do you just doodle with Sharpies all day?
A: I do a lot of doodling. Did you know you can work and doodle at the same time?
Q: You look like the Terminator in that photo. Are those robotic fingers?
A: Actually, that’s me trying to hold onto a bunch of the new stainless steel Sharpies. They’ll be in stores in March. In the meantime, I’ve been hording them. People are angry.
A: I hide them behind that blue poster on my window ledge. See it there behind me? I’m planning ahead for the holidays.
Q: Don’t you have to buy them at the store like everybody else?
A: I get a couple of freebies. You know. Perks.
Q: What can you tell us about this shiny new stainless steel Sharpie?
A: It has an etched Sharpie logo on the barrel and a refillable cartridge. It looks good. I mean, this is one sweet Sharpie.
Q: Do you use it to sign autographs?
A: Not yet but I will after everybody reads this. Call me. Let’s do lunch.
