German ad agency's overwritten full-of-sh*t recruitment ad.


(click ad, via) Jung von Matt produces some innovative advertising. They produce some strange advertising. They produce some sleazy advertising. And they produce some stupid advertising. This ad seeking creatives is so over-the-top, it zooms miles past parody and makes the place look very unappealing. "Tattooed bisexual redhead interns?" Jesus, please shut-up. Our industry is already despised enough.

Someone's been reading Bret Easton Ellis. Whoever thought this was a good idea really needs to go back to account service and leave the copywriting to grownups.

“It was definitely in poor taste. I'd been prepping for two hours with hair and makeup and getting dressed. And the first interview I do, someone who I have never met before fondles me for his own satisfaction.”

The thing that depresses me the most is the fact that whoever wrote this makes more money than I do

Twenty-something tattooed bisexual redhead's opinion: WTF? I'm having trouble deciding whether this is ironic or not...but either way it's stupid.

wow. I can't quite believe this ad. Wouldn't it have been quicker, easier and more effective to have just written '"WANKERS WANTED" in the ad space? I'm pretty sure they'd end up with the same applicants.

Reminds of FCUK catching attention... once its done, doesnt have the same effect. Doesnt encourage any positive feelings either. Not a fan.

Wow, quel brutal design. Reading that neon highlighted type made me want to die in a fire. If you can't do layouts, just use black helvetica on white and call it "stark", okay?
