Trivago corporation announced earlier today the impending replacement of its current spokesman, Tim “Trivago Guy” Williams, with embattled NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams (not related). According to insiders within the corporation, the latter Williams will take over Trivago duties as soon as his resume references check out.
A company spokesperson addressed the surprising hiring with the following official statement: “In the interests of rebuilding our proud company’s credibility, especially in the aftermath of the whole ‘Trivago Guy’ Internet meme, we decided to replace Tim Williams with an equally credible but much more famous Williams—NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams.
As a respected journalist and celebrity this man has visited all kinds of hotel rooms from shot-down military helicopters in Iraq to gang-infested Superdomes New Orleans. Clearly this is a man who knows how to save money on hotel rooms.”
Brian Williams assured practicallyserious.com that he has extensive corporate spokesperson experience, including playing the main caveman in last decade’s famous commercial campaign by Geico. He also claims that he was the guy who played Ronald McDonald in all McDonald’s commercials between 1985 and 1989. He further claims to have been shot at with AK47s during the filming of at least one of those commercials.
Brian Williams’ handlers have suggested to Practicallyserious.com that the disgraced host will require little help from Trivago’s make-up and wardrobe department. Apparently, after less than a week after stepping down from his hosting gig, he’s already sporting that signature disheveled Trivago Guy look. “He’s pretty much picture ready,” said a rep.
