MSNBC’s Ed Schultz gets his own Spike Lee promos

Remember last summer when Ed Schultz yelled in the middle of the MSNBC newsroom, “I’m going to torch this [bleep]ing place” for not being included in election night promos?

Well, that was so six months ago.

Not only is Big Ed getting his own promos they’re going go be directed by Spike Lee. Schultz is heading to his hometown of Norfolk, VA today where he’ll tape some “Lean Forward” promos.

HamptonRoads.com reports Lee will, “showcase Schultz in a series of ads focusing on jobs, outsourcing and unions. The ads will be unscripted and shot like documentaries, an area for which Lee has also garnered acclaim.”

The promos will begin running next month.
