The Kodak Video is Back
I was told that the "cojones" comment was out but the "big fat makeready" and "kick their a**" comments are still in. The Animal House line "I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part" was wrong... the really futile and stupid gestures can obviously be repeated again and again.

... and the comments still apply. The most offensive thing is the "big fat makeready" comment, referring to Kodak's history of constantly downsizing and making really bad acquisitions. Again, those were real employees, with real families that the company led on and let go, not even counting the investors who got taken in at those times. So what if some of the bar-room adolescent rant was removed from the video... it's still a dumb video that does not do Kodak any good.
