If Men's Wearhouse is really looking for drastic changes to its marketing after ousting founder George Zimmer, maybe it can turn to John McAfee. The founder of McAfee Inc. -- you may have McAfee Antivirus on your computer right at this moment -- is back in the states and taking a shot at online video.
He's definitely got decent comedic timing and a strong presence. But if the Men's Wearhouse board didn't like Zimmer talking back, it's probably not going to be a fan of McAfee. Intel, which now owns the company McAfee founded, certainly isn't too thrilled by the not-safe-for-work video, titled "How To Uninstall McAfee Antivirus."
The good news for Intel is that neither McAfee nor his technical assistant ever do teach consumers how to successfully remove the program from the computer. But only because the tech assistant is distracted by a half-naked boss who's cavorting with strippers, snorting bath salts through a silly straw and playing with guns and knives. He caps off an increasingly unhinged and profanity-laced rant by saying, "Fifteen years ago I had some beautiful software and they took it over. I don't know what they did" and then shooting his computer.
This is obviously a play off of McAfee's recent life. As ABC's Joanna Stern so deftly summarizes it: "After the founder of the McAfee software security company was believed to be a murder suspect in Belize, he hid out in the jungle, escaped to Guatemala, faked a heart attack and returned to the United States."
"While we take any attack on our products seriously, these ludicrous statements have no basis in reality," the company told ABC News.
