Dennis Rodman Finally Gets the Help He Needs…from a PR Firm

2005 was a rough year for everyone.

See, here we thought Dennis Rodman had finally succeeded in becoming relevant again after spending many years in the “remember that guy?” wilderness where outrageous celebrities go to spend a few months in rehab and reflect upon lives of excess.

Today, however, we received a press release from New York firm The Pitching Staff announcing that its latest client would indeed be the former Bull.

We appreciate the honesty in the release, starting with the subject line “Dennis Rodman’s people ask PR firm to help”. We also like the bite-the-hand-that-feeds-you opener:

“In the aftermath of Dennis Rodman’s very public rant on CNN, Rodman has tapped Jules Feiler at The Pitching Staff for public relations council [sic].”

While the word “alcohol” doesn’t appear anywhere in the release, we like how the writer cuts right through the fat before listing the usual client history, etc.

Dennis Rodman Loves Kim Jong-Un, Gives Disturbing Interviews

Something tells us that Dennis Rodman can’t afford media training services. A few subtle hints:

  • He cannot pronounce a word to save his life
  • He says he “loves” his “friend” Kim Jong-Un and strongly implies that captive American Kenneth Bae did something very, very bad (he’d love to talk about it but can’t for some reason we’d rather not explore)
  • He begs the question: Are you gonna smoke that cigar or just wave it around for the camera?
  • He makes CNN’s Chris Cuomo look good

We might recommend this clip as a case study in how not to behave during an interview, but it’s too painful to watch more than once.
