Shingy Is Our Muse

In a surprisingly candid piece in the New Yorker , AOL’s own Digital Prophet, David Shing AKA Shingy AKA Miley Scissorhands described, with utmost sincerity, a bear wearing a shirt covered in ones and zeroes. The bear was also wearing zebra-print pants.

From the New Yorker:

Next, Shingy stopped by the office of Erika Nardini, the chief marketing officer of AOL Advertising, and handed her an iPad Mini. “Wanted to show you a little brain fart I had on the plane,” he said. It was a cartoon he had drawn of a bear wearing zebra-print pants and a shirt covered in ones and zeros. “Love it, love it, love it,” Nardini said. “I’m thinking of the bears more as a metaphor.” “A thousand per cent,” Shingy said.
