Hajj Qassem couture

NOW Advertising Correspondent Michael Weiss dishes up the latest on Qassem Soleimani


Earlier this week, the English-language Kurdish newspaper The Slemani Times posted a photograph purporting to show Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani dressed in a black Tommy Hilfiger sweater.


NOW has kept a close eye on the Iranian spymaster's many photo ops from the Iraqi and Syrian battlefields, as well as his evolving attire. Given that a mortal enemy of the United States is now adorned in quintessentially American couture, might Hajj Qassem be the next big thing on Madison Avenue? A few ad campaigns have already sprung to mind.

    I think this forecloses any pretension that Weiss is either fair or credible. This is pure propaganda.

    Funny but with ideological context, you make him big, he's just a good soldier.
