See Oprah, Get a Car

I’ve said some good and bad things about Oprah in the past, but the stunt she pulled on her season debut has made me reevaluate everything I’ve said.

On Monday’s show, Oprah gave every single audience member – all 276 of them – a brand new Pontiac G6. Here’s a Chicago Tribune blurb on it. Many audience members were selected when they wrote Oprah and spoke of their car and financial woes but, can you imagine? You go there and come home with a new car?

Of course it wasn’t paid for by Oprah herself, and it’s more of a PR stunt on Pontiac’s part, but who’s going to be thinking about that when driving in a new car? They’re going to think that Oprah is super great. And for Oprah, that’s super smart.
