Tulane in Liam Neeson movie

Post by Rotorooter »

I know I have to turn in my Man Card for admitting this one, but my wife made me watch a mediocre movie "Made in Italy" that stars Liam Neeson and his son. Not five minutes into it, Neeson's character appears in an Angry Wave Tulane t-shirt and wears it for the first 30 minutes of the movie. The shirt is very prominent. (Movie is set in London and, you guessed it, Italy). Come to find out Neeson's other son is a junior at ole TU and has an eco-friendly clothing line. So it is a good old-fashioned capitalist movie promo for his son's clothing, but the Tulane reference, and Angry Wave, is unmistakeable.

That's:
a) fantastic
and
b) extremely disappointing that Tulane has not publicized this loudly and proudly
and also
c) curious that we haven't heard all about "Liam Neeson's son's eco-friendly clothing line".

On edit, a little googling - lots of mentions of Tulane in the stories - though that's more a reason that we should have heard more about this:

P.S. if you go look at his son's online site, there are no Tulane shirts for sale, so it wasn't an advertisement for his son's stuff...

My daughter just finished putting on her annual music festival Virtually to great success when it looked like it wouldn’t happen back in March . It’s amazing what you can do if you task some tech savvy 20-30 years olds, give them a problem set, and turn them loose. Tulane should hire a handful few tech wizards who understand online marketing and how to capitalize on things like the Neeson cameo. When you have older folks like most of us here running things you sometimes don’t know what you don’t know.

Hire them? Don't they have a campus full of kids who are both tech-savvy and also all about spreading news on social media? Make it part of the class requirement to do projects that promote Tulane. Heck, Neeson's son himself is majoring in something like digital media (from one of the stories I linked).
