What a fun day to be a Berkshire Hathaway shareholder!
When I woke up, the new Entourage movie trailer was all over my Twitter feed. And apparently, our esteemed Chairman Warren Buffett makes a cameo on the movie! Check out his name and picture in the trailer:
I think I remember a few years back that an Entourage clip was included in the video played at the annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting. Does anyone else remember that? I’m wondering if Mr. Buffett shot more scenes for the movie or if the movie producers just included a clip or two from the Berkshire video. Either way, pretty cool!
Then, a few hours later, we learn that Berkshire Hathaway is financing the merger of Kraft and Heinz. We’ve enjoyed having Heinz a part of the Berkshire family for the past few years. And the new partnership is leading to some pretty great ideas on behalf of Berkshire shareholders anxious to see a Kraft booth in Berkyville at the annual shareholders meeting!
Imagine a mac & cheese truck! Or Lunchables and Capri Suns for the kids? Unlimited A1 Steak Sauce for all those steaks at Gorats’s and Piccolo’s during the weekend. Wheat Thins and Easy Cheese for a midmorning snack during the meeting. The possibilities are endless! What are your great Kraft ideas?
We have no idea if Kraft will make an appearance at this year’s annual meeting, but we’ll be happy to see them whenever they arrive! Until then, consider my weekly Kraft Mac & Cheese habit a contribution to the well-being of Berkshire Hathaway!
