So you’ve been falsely identified as an erectile dysfunction ambassador

Eddie McGuire was used in a fake article endorsing an erectile dysfunction supplement last month. He said he'd sue, but is there any point? What's the smart play here?

Brands often use celebrities to help sell their stuff. Ten’s Carrie Bickmore is often spruiking Garnier BB cream in TV ads, her network colleague Lisa Wilkinson is the face of Nutra-Life, The Bachelorette's Georgia Love has her face on Palmer’s moisturisers, and reality TV star and singer Casey Donovan is the latest in a line-up of washed-up celebs to appear in Coles ads.

And that's because it works.

    Someone drew to my attention a comment on Facebook claiming I’d been having nocturnal relations with a former fish and chip shop lady from Ipswich in Bananaland. It had been taken down before I looked, so I had no evidence. I suspect I know who put it there, but can’t prove it. I’m being stalked by an administrator from an Obnoxious School in Victoria. I have never met the lady referrd to above, and at my age I doubt that she or anyone else would find me to be of any interest.
