Infographic—The Evolution of the Ad Exec: 1960 to 2011.

(click image, via adverblog)
Adverblog tellingly calls this "on point."
I call it "asinine and pointless."
Written by a hack account/sales exec, I'm sure.
Each era has its puke-inducing tidbits.
All the 2011 blurbs make me ill.
Maybe you digital media dillweeds/ Mad Men obsessed lemmings will get a kick out of it. This is why I have zero friends who work in the biz.
• A day in the life of a pathetic graphic designer.
copywriters are douchebags—an infographic.
• The asshole art director's checklist.

Hang on!?! Did someone say "On Point"?

Make that two asinine and pointless illustrations of the ad-game...both wasting many hours of company time.

I guess the ad business shut down in the 70's.

I read the infographic before reading your comments on it and was really happy when I realized you were as angry at this horse shit as I was.

Then quit the industry and stop whinging. You won't be missed.

You explain to me what "whinging" is, and I'll stop doing.

intr.v. whinged, whinging, whinges
Chiefly British
To complain or protest, especially in an annoying or persistent manner.

Methinks Anon 6:30 PM is a slimey, limey.

You stonking, slagger, wanker, stop being such a stroppy cow!!! TTFN

Stonking - means huge.
Slag - to bad mouth someone in a nasty way.
Wanker - someone who is a bit of a jerk and cronic masturbator.
Strop - being particularly miserable.
TTFN - Short for "ta ta for now," goodbye!

Conceivably, it could always be worse than this. Right? Right?

Another limey here.

Yes CR is a whinger and it grates from time to time - but there really is no excuse for this sort of SHITE.

I got as far as 'social butterflies' (line 2) and was already nauseous. I work in advertising and it is this sort of BOLLOCKS that gives us a bad name. It's a FUCKING OFFICE JOB, no more, no less, so ARSEHOLES like this should stop painting it as akin to being a FUCKING RALLY DRIVER, or INTERNATIONAL PLAYBOY, or A-LIST FILM STAR. Wankers.
