An ad I did that insulted the NYC mob.

WHEN BFI DECIDED to try to break up the mob trash cartel in NYC, They came to our agency to handle the advertising. Despite the fact that our office is right on the border of Little Italy, we took the business. This was the first ad in the campaign. Shortly thereafter, it was reprinted in a Fortune article about the NYC garbage biz.
The mob’s response (allegedly)? Apparently lacking connections at Belmont, the HEAD OF A DOG was left on the Brooklyn stoop of a BFI executive.

Holy crap, you've got some big ones to do an ad like this. Isn't an animals head a little overdone? Cliches aside, it probably had the intended affect.

Should've had a word with your AD about the layout - those widows and spacings are abysmal.
