ADVERTISING SUCKS SMELLY DICK

Pathetic "real" bloggers within this biz have made it known recently—in their shrill nerdy voices—that they don't like my blog. "Waa, you don't play nice. Waa!" I thought this was clear, but let me say it plainly:
I DON'T LIKE THIS BUSINESS. I don't have any ad friends. I DON'T WANT ANY. This blog is for people outside of the sycophantic, douchebag-infused, circle-jerking "hey, good ad you did there pal" clusterfuck. It's for non adpeople to help them understand how navel-gazing this industry is. You don't like it here ad boys? Don't read. And save your personal attacks for people you actually personally know.

I'm a dickhead copywriter (have been for 15 years) and I love your blog. Sorry.

Feel better after your rant? I hope so.

And I'm not in the ad world and I think your blog is a riot.

I hate to confuse you with logic, CR, but aren't you making "personal attacks" on people you don't "actually personally know" with this post? So everyone who disagrees with you is a "dickhead copywriter?" I guess that's a convenient way of looking at the world: If you don't like me, it's only because you are jealous of me.

I happen to read the blog you are referring to and I have to say, it's nothing like what you describe. There's very little kissing up on it -- just honest opinions and analysis. I don't think the people who post there take themselves or this business too seriously. I'm afraid if anyone's taking himself too seriously, it's you. Seriously, man, grow a pair - and grow up.

It's like that one guy said: If you have such an incredible job at such an incredible agency making such incredible money, why are you so incredibly angry and bitter?

"why are you so incredibly angry and bitter?"

because it's comedy gold...duh.

Comedy gold? Talk about an easily entertained audience. (No wonder ad guys always think they're so brilliant.)

No, this is not gold. Nor comedy. It's anyone-can-do-it pissiness with no real purpose or content. Just bile poured out of a can onto someone else's ideas.

I believe the key to all this is lies atop the Oct.18th blog....

The whole thing is silly. It's like Vice getting in a fight with the National Review.

I'm your perfect audience. What the fuck is a copywriter? What do you copy? Is that some fancy term for the guy who works at Kinko's?

Now that's funny.

As for what they copy, pretty much anything they can get away with.

A problem? Nah. Myself and the copyranter are a lot more than he realizes when it comes to our views on the sour-milking underbelly of the advertising world. We just don't see entirely eye-to-eye on how to express it....

I love it. If you're in marketing, kill yourself.

advertising doesn't count. except for the 1% of ads that have enough talent and money behind them to be more than just a nuisance.

note - this post is anonymous because I can't be bothered to join the weakass blogger network

Check out McCann Erickson's Base Line... "Truth Well Told."

There's no fine line between truth and lies.

You ask me a question, I give you an answer, and you ask me the same question again, this time it's a different answer, same question, different answers. You know by now how 'Truthful' I am.

Now let's try it the otherway round, you ask me a thousand different questions and I give you the same answer. That's the truth.

So when somebody sells the same product, giving us a thousand different answers, it's pure lies. "Truth Well Told"

They're so clever, aren't they?

Selling Lies with the word, truth. Nothing but blatant lies. 24/7/365.

Branding came with horses and addiction to tobaco. If you can get someone addicted. You've created a brand. Wow to the human race!!!

Dude. I'm a copywriter. Been doing it for 15 years. What else is there to say except you're 100% on the money. Advertising is one huge gang-bang... the most ridiculous dick measuring cluster fuck on the planet. It's all smoke and mirrors my friend, and people who say otherwise are completely full of shit and themselves.

Some of these ad cretins actually believe their work makes the world a better place. Go fuck figure that one out. And designers? Retards. All of them. Who gave these fuckers the right to have opinions? They should stick to playing with their digital crayons and leave the real work to people who don't communicate using a color palette. You know, like 99.5% of the planet's inhabitants.

Oooh. That felt good. Anyway, CR, keep up the good work. Screw the haters. They know you're right and are simply afraid of their bosses catching on.
