- How could marketers use fake celebrity Pinterest boards to get PR for the things they pin?
- How do you think fake Pinterest boards affect will effect political campaigns?
1. Michelle Obama
2. Nicolas Sarkozy
Oh Nicholas Sarkozy, where would political satire be without you? Although this parody is in French, it doesn’t take a genious to see that this parody Pinterest account is showcasing Mr. Sarkozy’s favorite things. And by favorite things we mean very, very expensive favorite things: watches, yachts, etc. Apparently the economy is back! Do you think the French would look to Mr. Sarkozy’s Pinterest board as fashion and lifestyle inspiration?

3. Mitt Romney
If you don’t know the brouhaha that has surrounded this account, I must ask: have you been living under a rock? Apparently the Romney campaign came after this parody and demanded that the account name be changed to “fakemittromney” (which it has under pressure from Pinterest admin). One of the captions showing a Pelligrino reads- “Have you ever taken a Pellegrino bath? It’s like a jacuzzi, but you save money on electricity! We all have to do our part to protect the environment.” Now, how is THAT not funny?!?

4. Rick Santorum
Okay, this is the last political Pinterest but it’s worth it, I promise. The bio on this account had me in tears (from laughing). It reads: ”To win back women voters, I’ve signed up for Pinterest because I heard you ladies like this site. I like seeing you gals back in the kitchen, and I think all of your cupcakes look delicious.” Conservative, liberal, anarchist…that is hilarious!

5. Mark Zuckerberg
What’s a NON Facebook-owned social networking site without a Mark Zuckerberg parody? Exactly. The only way to truly solidify your social networking site is to have Mark on it – whether in reality or in parody. My favorite of “Mark’s” boards? Definitely the “Famous People” board. Why? Because it has one pin on it and guess who’s on there? Mark Zuckerberg. HAHA!
6. Nicki Minaj
7. Lada Gaga
Hmmm… when a celeb’s social media account says: “It’s Me” it’s pretty obvious that the account is anything but that! Like Nicki Minaj’s board, I was hoping for a bit more FREAK! My hope is that boards named “Freak of nature,” “My little monsters” and the like will appear over time. Regardless, the “It’s me” board gets some brownie points for effort. In addition, this fan DID really get a tattoo in Lady Gaga’s honor. You just can’t argue with that monster!

8. Miley Cyrus
A corny bio, lots of puppies and some neon nail polish… My vote? Add few more boards. Perhaps ones called “Tabloids,” “My really georgeous boyfriend” and “partying” to keep us real hooked on Miley’s life as a teenage millionaire. Perhaps you even show us your dog’s lifestyles and all the cars you own. Make us think of you as the contraversial little adult you’ve become instead of a Disney pop princess.
