And then I woke up. What a nightmare! Because the judgement was against us. In my dream, Bailey sued us for using her image on our label without her consent.
It was just a dream, right? Not for Russell Christoff, who is perhaps better known as “that guy on the Taster’s Choice can”. Seems everybody except him knew it, at least until 2002. Mr. Christoff, a model, posed for the photo in 1986, but never knew that photo was used on the label sold in 18 countries. He sued, and was awarded $15.6 million. Of course it’s still being wrangled in court, nevertheless….

For the record, Bailey is compensated daily with morning walks, homemade dog food, and lots of affection.
