Y&R thanks me for screwing you.


(click image. I converted it to b/w so you could read it better)
Paging through my super-exciting guide to the upcoming super-exciting Advertising Week NYC, I came upon this example from the less-is-more art direction school via has-been New York ad agency Young & Rubicam ( the last memorable work they did was, oh, about 1967). Way to make it even more likely that us ad hacks will not get laid and will get the shit beat out of us when the conversation turns to "what we do." And while we're at it, let's add some other wonderful contributions we've made to the New World Order: the $100 t-shirt; the $300 sneaker; the $100,000 SUV; and the fucking $15 cocktails that I have to always buy rounds of because I'm the douche who gets overpaid to dupe.

1. ANDYs promoted with Anilingus.
2. I believe that should be: Lies Well Disguised.

It's funny that they take credit for the $5.00, since Starbucks built their brand by doing virtually no advertising. So not only does advertising make shit more expensive, but it also takes credit for shit it didn't do.

The time has come for Y&R to drop the "R" and just call itself "Why?"

They forgot to mention the 15% commission for doing shitty work. Now that's a really nice job.
