Dealing With Henki and Tempus Fugit
He's worked in the business, he calls bullshit when he sees it, and he does not care if you like him or not.

00:00 - 00:03I can't believe he posted that!
00:04 - 00:05I mean, it's the truth, but damn!
00:05 - 00:07He thinks he can fool us
00:08 - 00:12He moved to Boston from California
00:12 - 00:15But it's the same guy.
00:17 - 00:19Maybe if we send him an invite to...
00:19 - 00:21Some event we know he can't attend...
00:24 - 00:26I don't think that will work.
00:27 - 00:28He'll simply say he can't go.
00:31 - 00:33We tried offering a free watch
00:34 - 00:36But he said with the new FTC regulations...
00:53 - 00:58The F'ing FTC...
01:13 - 01:15But that doesn't stop some of the others!
01:15 - 01:17They have their grasping hands out for everything!
01:18 - 01:23It was bad enough when it was considered a gift...
01:25 - 01:28But Henki said that the new rules are clear, no more freebies!
01:29 - 01:31We used to be able to buy these people
01:31 - 01:34"here's something shiny!"
01:34 - 01:37"You're a friend of the brand"!
01:37 - 01:40When did paying for a good review become wrong?
01:40 - 01:42Well, before the FTC ruling it was just an ethical issue...
01:42 - 01:46Ethics?!? What does that have to do with watches?
01:46 - 01:48But now that it's the law, Henki won't budge!
01:48 - 01:52That slippery little turd!
01:53 - 01:54Fine, let him have his "ethics"!
01:56 - 01:57He won't make any money that way.
01:57 - 02:00Once he can't pay the rent, he'll change his tune!
02:00 - 02:03He'll be back in our pocket in no time!
02:04 - 02:08He'll see the others...
02:08 - 02:13Hamptons trips, surfing lessons, business class travel...
02:14 - 02:16This is the way the game is played!
02:17 - 02:21He's only fooling himself!
02:27 - 02:29I mean, we grease all of the big outlets and get coverage...
02:30 - 02:34Ethics? Ethics has nothing to do with us!
02:34 - 02:36Money, freebies, paid vacations...
02:41 - 02:42That's how you manage the press!
02:43 - 02:47He even said no to the SIHH!
02:48 - 02:53Who DOES that?
02:54 - 02:56We'll cancel his BaselWorld appointments!
02:56 - 02:59We won't send him press releases...
03:00 - 03:02We won't invite him to our cocktail parties
03:04 - 03:07This happens every year, it's okay
03:14 - 03:16Ethics...
03:19 - 03:23Well "Mr. Henki"...
03:25 - 03:26I've got your "ethics" right here!
03:31 - 03:33I miss the old days...
03:40 - 03:46Journalists were affordable...
03:46 - 03:49And not so hard to manage.
03:53 - 03:56Any other ideas?
