If you thought Mike Hutcheson was the smartest man in New Zealand, you thought wrong. Turns out it’s Brennan Martin. And we couldn’t help but chortle with delight/smack our gobs in disbelief at the man’s brazen show of commercialism when we received a press release boldly offering his services to endorse various goods and services. “Everybody who is human has their price,” he says, very intelligently, while smoking a pipe in a room filled with leather bound books. “As a unique promotional opportunity being offered to public and private businesses, I anticipate I will be well paid for my efforts. The rights to use my image and voice are a bargain at any price. However, my performance and appearance fee are negotiable.” Mmmm, confidence. He’s basically the thinking man’s Dan Carter. So tell us what kind of product/service/promotion you could use the country’s smartest man for and we’ll send the best effort a Tui gnome, a hip flask of Smirnoff and maybe even a couple of crappy business self-help books.
