Qifa Nabki: Marketing Firm Says Iranian Regime Unresponsive To Re-Branding Efforts
““We came to them and said, ‘Hey, why not consider changing your name back to Persia? The current name — the Islamic Republic of Iran — brings to mind 1979, the hostage crisis, Khomeini, all kinds of unpleasant associations,” explained Mr. Ransom.
“On the other hand, the name ‘Persia’ is fantastic. When you hear Persia, what do you think? Persian carpets, Persian kittens… it’s just a friendlier, more welcoming vibe.””
“Take Khamenei, for example. Does he really need to be called the ‘Supreme Leader’? Why not something a little more modern, like Chief Spiritual Officer? Or Celestial Attaché?”
“Council of the Guardians? I mean, come on… what is this? The Lord of the Rings?” chuckled Mr. Ransom.”
