Discount Retailer, Discount Ad Campaign?
Stolen identity is the theme of the week - Lifelock made a splash in the sponsorship world with their WNBA jersey deal this week and now CNBC's Darren Rovell points out that discount retailer T.J. Maxx might have taken their "value" mantra to a whole new level by using a Tiger Woods "lookalike" in a recent ad campaign.
