Trendspotting Spoof

Looks like my "reaction" to Trendspotting pieces was more of a test of my moral reflexes than I had guessed: Dear Paul, We hope you enjoyed the very special trend briefing we sent you yesterday. If you didn't, then please pour yourself a strong cup of coffee and take another close look. It's a SPOOF. Fake. Not to be taken at face value. Even most of the sites we referred to are, well, ours—and entirely fictitious. We thought it would be fun, just for once, to mock overzealous marketers, crass consumerism and—above all—ourselves. :-) So please don't ditch your pet, stay in ugly hotels, pollute the earth, paint your walls turquoise or start marketing to unborn babies, OK? Rest assured that we'll back with 'real' trends in December, the kind of trends you've been getting from us since 2002. If you can't wait that long, check out our Trend Database or our 2008 Trend Report. All real, all authentic, all useful. ;-) Best, Reinier Evers Founder,
