Xmas Message

"By the way if anyone here is in advertising or marketing... kill yourself.
No, no, no it's just a little thought. I'm just trying to plant seeds. Maybe
one day, they'll take root - I don't know. You try, you do what you can.
Kill yourself. Seriously though, if you are, do. Aaah, no really, there's no
rationalisation for what you do and you are Satan's little helpers, Okay -
kill yourself - seriously. You are the ruiner of all things good, seriously.

No this is not a joke, you're going, "there's going to be a joke coming,"
there's no fucking joke coming. You are Satan's spawn filling the world with
bile and garbage. You are fucked and you are fucking us. Kill yourself. It's
the only way to save your fucking soul, kill yourself."

- Bill Hicks

Planting seeds. I know all the marketing people are going, "he's doing a joke”... there's no joke here whatsoever. Suck a tail-pipe, fucking hang yourself, borrow a gun from a friend - I don't care how you do it. Rid the world of your evil fucking machinations. I know what all the marketing people are thinking right now too, "Oh, you know what Bill's doing, he's going for that anti-marketing dollar. That's a good market, he's very smart." Oh man, I am not doing that. You fucking evil scumbags! "Ooh, you know what Bill's doing now, he's going for the righteous indignation dollar. That's a big dollar. A lot of people are feeling that indignation. We've done research - huge market. He's doing a good thing." Godammit, I'm not doing that, you scum-bags! Quit putting a godamm dollar sign on every fucking thing on this planet!

"Ooh, the anger dollar. Huge. Huge in times of recession. Giant market, Bill's very bright to do that." God, I'm just caught in a fucking web! "Ooh the trapped dollar, big dollar, huge dollar. Good market - look at our research. We see that many people feel trapped. If we play to that and then separate them into the trapped dollar..." How do you live like that? And I bet you sleep like fucking babies at night, don't you?"

That Bill Hicks thing was used in an ad for Axis ad school 3 years ago. If you want to get your message across you really need to make sure your creative is original. I think you're really let yourself down here.

The Bill Hicks thing was brilliant and can be trotted out as often as one likes. It's alweays funny and always relevant. The fact it was used as an Axis Ad School recruiting poster is irrelevant. Do you think they were the first people to read it?

Now. What have you done that's original, 101

Brilliant? I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that it was brilliant heard in person. Reading it on a blog 11 years later is really fucking boring.
