Guerrilla Marketing At Its Be$t:: NEWYORKESE Make$ it Rain::

To promote its clothing line, fledgling brand NEWYORKESE poured American dollars onto attendees of Pitti Immagine Uomo, a major fashion event.

The dollars featured the NEWYORKESE logo and the phrase "Tu vuo fa l'americano ma si Made in Italy" -- "you want to be American, but you were Made in Italy" -- the title of a song by Renato Carosone.

CEO Gianfilippo Fontana of NEWYORKESE called the effort part of a "low budget advertising campaign." She added, "Thankfully the dollar exchange was very affordable."
