Would my kid be a son of a biscuit eater?

An e-mail I got today: "Kathleen, hello! I hope this email finds you well. I am working on a special project and was hoping you could lend your talent and expertise…it’s for Bojangles’ Restaurants – we are filming a commercial using “real people” to give their first hand perspectives on Bojangles’ biscuits – the concept is to basically give a review of the biscuit on camera. We will be shooting on May 1 – it would not require much of your time or travel. We can shoot outside of the Observer building or where ever is convenient for you. Let me know if you’d be interested."
Anybody have a story to top that one?

Kathleen Purvis, The Charlotte Observer.

Does the person working PR person think this is news a food editor should cover? It's just an overt attempt to get ink. Plus, filming outside of the newspaper office, especially if the name of the paper appears in the commercial, gives the impression that the Observer has taken to peddling biscuits. Is there no end to the ridiculous ideas from PR people?
