The Legend of the Brand Brothers

There is the story in the Bible of Moses coming down from the mountaintop with the Ten Commandments. But recently, scientists discovered an Eleventh Commandment, which Moses would’ve had if he hadn’t stepped on a beer can and dropped the stone tablets, chipping off #11. The commandment was: Thou Shalt Not Do Fake Branding! Mainly because fake branding breaks the other commandments like lying, stealing your clients’ money, and killing (your difference).

Fast forward 4,000 years.

Lorenzo Gomez III, author of The Cilantro Diaries: Business lessons from the most unlikely places, was ice climbing in Tibet when, peering into a crevasse, he spied what looked like a perfectly preserved ancient human, frozen upside down in a glacier! Lorenzo chipped the ice away with his phone’s ice-chipping app. First, the actual shoes, a pair of brown wingtips, appeared. Then, a nice suit, a club tie, a glass of scotch and a cigarette appeared in the human hand, still lit! This was no ordinary find. It was a New York ad guy who was lost while shooting a Pizza Hut commercial with the Dali Llama.

That guy...was Bill Schley. Lorenzo revived him in seconds by trying to take away the Scotch. In that instant, a brotherhood was formed. A brotherhood to fight the evil forces of fake branding—to reveal the secrets of the real Brand Titans--so instead of fake branding you can have great branding!

Thus, they returned to the branding capital of the world, San Antonio, to start the greatest of podcasts.



The Brand Brothers make every listener one simple promise: They guarantee you will know more after listening to six shows than ad execs in New York making $650,000 per year. And it’s cumulative, so if you listen to three shows, you’ll know as much as an exec making $350k. Four shows, $450k and so on. After six shows you’ll get your own slot on Sirius XM Radio.

So, what are you waiting for? Maybe for this Introduction to end? Okay!

Welcome to The Brand Brothers.
