Corporate board elections are usually dull affairs best left to investor newsletters and government filings. But the battle between Procter & Gamble and activist investor Nelson Peltz, who is seeking a seat on the company’s board, has the hallmarks of a heated political campaign: eye-popping amounts of spending, acrimonious exchanges and aggressive grassroots lobbying of the small shareholders whose votes are normally meaningless. It is the biggest corporate proxy fight in history and staggeringly expensive; the two sides will have spent at least $60 million, and probably tens of millions more, as they try to sway investors to their point of view.

Because everything, even the moon temporarily blotting out the sun, is a commercial opportunity.
There was a moment in modern marketing–and it was just a moment, right around the time social media still felt like a new, fun club we all just joined, but not yet a required media outlet–that a well-timed tweet from a brand to acknowledge, pay tribute to, or joke about a cultural event would be well received, and maybe even thoroughly enjoyed.
