Marketing Expert Recommends PSAs For Robert Blake

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Acquitted actor Robert Blake has stated that he spent $10 million defending himself, he’s out of money and needs a job, but if he’s thinking he’ll be able to reap millions in endorsement deals, he’s out of luck.

That’s the opinion of Glenn Pere, head of the entertainment marketing agency The Pere Partnership. Pere says Blake would not do well as a spokesperson for any product, and no company would want him as a pitchman.

Pere says although Blake was acquitted, “people don’t like to see people make money off of death.” That’s why he thinks if Blake endorsed any product it would backfire for him and the company.

He says, right now, Blake is best-suited for pro bono work and public service announcements for topics like gun control and crime, and maybe voiceover work, where no one will see his face.
