Something Brooklyn Law School may want to look into doing in the future: Googling stuff. The administration recently agreed to allow Diesel to do a photoshoot in the school's library—and then were shocked that the photos turned out to be risque. Um, duh. Did anyone at Brooklyn Law even think to Google Diesel and have a look at the company's brand image and editorial/ad strategy? Our sister site Racked NY says: "Most of the students seem to be amused by the campaign, but a first-year named Jordan Hersch told the Post that he found the ad "disgusting" and interim dean Michael Gerber sent a message to faculty and staff saying that the school administration was "shocked and mortified" by the images."
