Kirshenbaum creatives wrap lips around founders' penises.

(click ad for closer look)
I love it when ad agencies try to advertise themselves—they universally suck suck suck at it.
This ad was scanned from my official guide to Advertising Week NYC 2007, the annual self suck-off where our industry's brightest and whitest see if this is finally the year they're able to take it all in, right down to the hilt.
Here the kb+p drones (who're responsible for one of the worst ads I've ever seen) lovingly slurp their has-been bosses' Design® markers.
(to answer your question...as a matter of fact, no, I don't never want to work in this town ever again.)
previously in ad agencies are chock full o' douchebags:
1. Y&R thanks me for screwing you.
2. ANDYs promoted with anilingus.
3. his salary is about 6 bucks/second.
related on Gawker: BBDO. Neither B stands for Bloated.

It's like Stockholm syndrome...you suck up to clients for the billings and do stupid work all day and without knowing, you wake up one day, loving the stupid work you do. And worse, you actually think it's 'edgy'. Anyway, what really is the purpose of Advertising Week?

If you want to see something really stupid, check out the Advertising Week in Washington. A silly knock-off of the NY idea. www.advertisingweekdc.com.

Holy crap. Have you looked at AWNYC07's website? It only works in IE. Check out the screenshot in Firefox. What is this, 1994? I thought all the ad hacks used shiny Macs anyway; what gives?

Well, I'll tell you. The website proudly bears the name of the site designer (after all, who wouldn't want to advertise their web incompetence to all of the Internets?), Mediatavern ("whatever you need, we've got it on tap" is arguably better than "we're too drunk to write proper code"). On their website, Mediatavern feature a TWO MINUTE FLASH INTRO that demands I "turn my volume up". OK, but no. It's the worst flash intro I've ever seen, although admittedly I neither watched nor listened to it because their logo looks like the Republican party's.
