Kevin Nalty (aka "Nalts" the YouTube video blogger) told NewTeeVee's Liz Gannes that "the fact that Merck was recently being unfairly linked to me and fart videos was the ’straw that broke the camel’s back.’”
Nalty recently quit his day job as Consumer Product Director at Merck, where he marketed Propecia, and decided to "follow his passion" full time -- making videos, working with Hitviews, and starting his own consulting practice (see "Kevin Nalty Goes Nalts Full Time! Quits Merck to Become Online Video Marketer").
Yes, Jim Edwards over at BNET Pharma and others linked Nalty's "farting in public video," with his position as a Merck Marketing Director. Embarrassing as it is to be caught farting in public, much more embarrassing to Merck were two other Nalty videos that I was the first to reveal here on Pharma Marketing Blog:
"ADHD Boy" (see "Kevin Nalty, Merck Marketing Director, Exposed as 'ADHD Boy!'") [SORRY! NALTS HAS RESTRICTED VIEWING OF THIS VIDEO TO A PRIVATE AUDIENCE, BY INVITATION ONLY. If you want to view it, contact Nalts through his website: WillVideoForFood.com]
"Sucks Away My Will to Live" (see "Kevin Nalty (aka "Nalts") Says Co-worker Once "Sucked Away His Will to Live") [SORRY! NALTS HAS RESTRICTED VIEWING OF THIS VIDEO TO A PRIVATE AUDIENCE, BY INVITATION ONLY. If you want to view it, contact Nalts through his website: WillVideoForFood.com]
Despite what Nalty says publicly, "Farting in Public" cannot compare to the above two videos in terms of public humiliation for Merck.
