Who is Scott Galloway? NYU professor says he's a fan of one night stands: 'I call them nut and bolt'
'The man of your dreams is here,' Scott Galloway proclaims at the start of the Bloomberg Quicktake video
NYU professor Scott Galloway is a fan of one night stands. And he calls them “Nut and Bolt”. This revelation comes in the form of a video — a now-deleted promo for a Bloomberg series.
On April 20, Bloomberg announced in a press release that Galloway's ‘The Prof G Show’ was added to Bloomberg Quicktake's summer/fall lineup. "We hope to reveal something new about business and modern life with our forward-looking programming," said Tre Shallowhorn, Senior Executive Producer of Bloomberg Quicktake. "Quicktake also covers all aspects of culture today — design, food, travel, sports, entertainment — and we use business as a lens to understand the make up of modern culture, guiding our editorial focus."
‘The Prof G Show’ featuring Galloway was introduced as a weekly show, in which the host “tears into the taxonomy of the tech business with unfiltered, data-driven insights, bold predictions, and thoughtful advice. The show will kick off with Galloway's insights on a single topic, using his unique blend of data-driven commentary and humor. He also interviews guests who both complement and challenge his thinking on various issues of today and delivers an ‘Office Hours’ segment, providing the world an ‘open door’ to the advice of the nine-time entrepreneur. The show closes with the ‘Algebra of Happiness’, reflecting Galloway's hard-won wisdom for achieving a fulfilling life and career.”
Galloway had said then, "We're going to try to collapse and collide the day's news, the most interesting news, with trends around society. We're going to try to cover without fear or favor, but we're also going to try to cover and find the stories that no one is talking about, the most interesting stories, specifically around the markets, around investing, and how politics, society, and capitalism all intersect.”
"Our job, our mission is to make you smarter, entertain you so you can digest this information and give you an edge such that you can develop economic security for you and your family,” he also said then. “I've worked with Bloomberg for the last 15 years. It's data driven, it's thoughtful, it's committed to integrity, journalism and has global reach."
This now-revealed video shows a shirtless Galloway wearing a hard hat and holding a mattock. It was shared by New York Times reporter Katie Robertson on Twitter. She wrote, “Scott Galloway (@profgalloway) has a new show on Bloomberg’s @Quicktake streaming service and … this deleted video gives some … insight into what to expect?” She added in a second tweet, “I’m reliably told people all over the Bloomberg office are playing this video right now.”

“The man of your dreams is here!” Galloway proclaims at the start of the video, adding, “If your dreams include the Village People meets a 47-year-old Jewish academic with erectile dysfunction who’s on testosterone.” He also said that he likes to “bring construction into” his sex life. “I’m a big fan of one night stands. I call it the ‘Nut and Bolt',” he said. “Anyway, Bitcoin, b***hes!”
Galloway is a professor of marketing at NYU Stern School of Business where he teaches Brand Strategy and Digital Marketing to second-year MBA students. Galloway was elected to the World Economic Forum's "Global Leaders of Tomorrow," which recognizes 100 individuals under the age of 40 "whose accomplishments have had impact on a global level." He also has served on the board of directors of Eddie Bauer, The New York Times Company, Gateway Computer, and Berkeley's Haas School of Business.
