Victoria's Secret Black Friday at Westfield San Francisco Centre 2009

 

The Victoria's Secret "brand manager" told me I couldn't take photos of the store.

 

I told him I had taken many photos already of the store in the Westin St Francis Building.

He said I couldn't take photos there either.

 

I pointed out Black Friday is a news event & he couldn't stop people from taking photos from a public sidewalk.

 

He said he still didn't want anyone to and threatened to call security on me, so I didn't get to point out to him that Victoria's Secret publishes 400 million catalogs a year with many of the same images.

 

Plus advertising, tv shows, and even an iPhone app
