Hawks’ play on Ashley Madison meant to drum up fan interest

Atlanta Hawks launch Ashley Madison ticket promotion.

The Atlanta Hawks unveiled a new marketing campaign Friday – taken straight from the headlines – in a promotion for ticket sales. “Have you had a little rough patch with your first love?,” one of the Ashley Madisons asks. “Maybe they just don’t deliver the excitement you need anymore.In a bizarre promotional play, the Hawks hired three Georgia natives — all named Ashley Madison — to push the team’s new 10-game flex ticket plan.

The team is urging fans to “Start a new love affair with the Hawks,” and the promo features the team’s mascot with its finger over its beak in a hushing pose, an obvious play on the affair website AshleyMadison.com. The new lighthearted TV spot has its fair share of detractors in the wake of Ashley Madison – the online company – being hacked earlier this summer.

But he fell in love with the jumper at times and didn’t attack, and that was fine with defenders because even that improved jumper was less dangerous than a dunk. A year ago, Bruce Levenson announced that he’d be selling the team after emails he sent in 2012 saying “the black crowd scared away the whites” came to light.

As far as what we worked on, a lot of face up, off the post, off the elbow, a lot of short roll stuff, getting into the lane, floaters – just because we get so much of that with our spacing of the court and how many pick and rolls we run with CP. [I worked on] a lot of stuff actually off the dribble too, just like one dribble pull-ups and things like that. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again. The team announced the plan on Twitter Friday morning, and while some users applauded the team for its outside the box thinking, others pointed out that the Hawks were capitalizing on an unsavory situation. This year, I’m really trying to perfect that balance of pick and pops versus putting it on the floor and making plays, so that’s kind of why I focused on everything this summer.

Green Day will finally release Heart Like a Hand Grenade, the “lost” documentary chronicling the making of their Bush-era protest album/rock opera, American Idiot, with a wide release scheduled for October 10th, DIY reports. Filmed around the same time as the release of Metallica’s Some Kind of Monster, Roecker recalled Armstrong worrying that the film would falter without the same kind of intense, intra-band drama — but the filmmaker wasn’t phased. “It shows a band on top of their game creating incredible music,” Roecker said. “It is a film that inspires. The bigger questions are can they play better defense consistently, and can the added depth on the roster with guys such as Lance Stephenson and Josh Smith come through for them in the playoffs? And finally the little film that could is being released.” Despite neither releasing new music, nor hitting the road this year, 2015 has been big for Green Day, who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April.

The band has also been working on the follow up to their 2012 trio of albums, with Armstrong telling Rolling Stone in the spring he had about five tracks finished. “I’m going to take it really slow,” he said. “I’m just going to make sure every moment is inspired and that we have something that’s really special to us.
