Last week, Scott Monty, head of social media for Ford Motor Company, posted a blog titled “Social Network: The Movie.” In a nutshell, Scott mentioned 10 social media professionals, including Chris Brogan, Seth Godin, Mark Ragan, and Brian Solis, and listed what celebrity would play them if they were in a movie. Also known as their “Hollywood doppelganger,” Scott did a great job finding celebrities to match these individuals.
Well, there was already a Vantage Point movie (released in 2008), but Dennis Quaid and Matthew Fox graced the silver screen instead of our team here in Greenville, SC. But if there were a movie on VantagePoint Marketing, who would play our team?
Note: I picked only a few from the VantagePoint team to highlight – it’s hard coming up with actors!
Craig O’Neal – President and CEO / George Clooney
(Similarities: successful, a genuinely nice guy, and well dressed)
Dave McQuaid – Vice President, Creative and Digital / Jim Carrey
(Similarities: creative, funny and sometimes out there, but in a good way!)
Kristin Ambory – Vice President, Client Services / Nicole Kidman
(Similarities: polished, professional and great attention to detail)
Mitch Mahoney – Summer Intern / John Francis Daley
(Similarities: it’s all in the hair and face)
Me – PR Specialist / Mena Suvari
(I’d rather be played by Rachel McAdams from “The Notebook” or Jennifer Anniston, but I’ve been told I look like Mena Suvari.)
What do you think? Did I represent our people well? I would love to hear what you think, or if you have any other recommendations.
