Marketing is dead. Or so they say. They, in this case, being Fred Webster and Bob Lusch (2013), top profs both. According to the distinguished duo – marketing’s self-appointed morticians – our esteemed discipline has passed over, gone west, bit the dust, kicked the bucket, popped its clogs, joined the choir invisible, shuffled off this mortal coil and, not unlike the deceased parrot in Monty Python’s much-exhumed comedy routine, lies a-mouldering in its grave getting ready to meet its maker.
