CD For Sale on TradeMe

With the advertising community at large so often accused of being "out of touch" or "elitist" the team at Sugar (one of NZ's independent advertising agencies) has decided to attempt to a social experiement of unusual daring:

In his absence (annual leave, Fiji) we have decided to send our esteemed Creative Director out into the community to connect with the real people.

Your opportunity? Become a "CD for a day" in the wild and crazy world of advertising!

The pay-off? We send our guy over to cover for you too (or try to provide a suitable replacement if your job is simply beyond his capabilities).

No reserve.
No experience required.

Happy trading!

I'm keen to start some rumours or backstabbing. That shit on the CB blog slamming the DDB team was pretty good till it got pulled, lets have a bit of that. Anyone keen to nominate someone to be slagged, doesn't really matter who as long as it's not me. Not that you know who I am coz it's all anonymous anyway, so we're safe to slag till our sad little hearts are satisfied.

I think someone in Wellington, after all, no one cares about Wellington anymore.

I really like the 42 below stuff in Vice.

The latest Goldstein stuff on the telly is rubbish - when did it stop being funny?

I'm planning on holding up 'scam' signs at Axis, they're going to be written in tomato sauce.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Goldstein was funny? Thought it was a Zionist plot or gag on Jew bankers.Perhaps both.At the same time.

Never once thought it was funny.Always lumped it in the "Seven Periods with Gormsby" oh-dear pile.

Unbelievably, people are downloading Seven Periods with Gormsby. Although one can't help but suspect that it's probably the kids on the show trying to destroy every copy.

Apparently CAANZ sent a list of the winners to the 'all DDB staff' email address. Could have been an even bigger cock up, but there's only 11 people on the list.

hardly surprising. no one ever wins at axis.

its there a master list of finalists anywhere so we can pick it to shreds please?

Someone from DDB should post it. Apparently it's dominated by the MTA ads.

If you want to slag something new, on the CB blog there's a nice pic of the Whybin head of art with his Grande Clio at the awards the other night in Miami.

I'm assuming the only problem you have with the picture is your notable absence?

Best bit of work out of nz for a while - you dont really pick up a grande clio everyday. Especially if you're Whybins. Remeber these guys were sitting on one (1) axis finalist this time last year so i reckon they are doing good. So how about slagging yourself for being a miserable cunt... just an idea.

2.18. Probably for the best. I reckon this site has run it's course and gone far off it. It's got SFA to do with advertising, just bitchiness.

I vote it gets shut down.

Where's Heidi? She'd sort all this out. She'd know what to do. And she'd fix up the fact that we're still (supposedly) talking about a CD that's not even for sale on Trademe any more. (They removed the listing - presumably because somebody bitched.)

I don't know if it's allowed to blog here without leaving a sprinkling of profanities. But I'll click the button and see what happens.

Meanwhile - did anyone see Lost?

2.18, I also sent something in - some funny Skittles TVCs - but they never appeared. Maybe the person who runs this thing has died. People do die.

On that sad note, let's reflect on all the good times this blog has brought us (you know like a "clips" episode) and then take a moment to thank them in your own special way. R.I.P.

C'mon, whoever has got the keys to this blog, can they pass them on to someone in the creative fraternity who has a bit of time on their hands. It's a great forum (despite some of the nastiness) and worth the effort to keep it going - and by all accounts there's a lot of folks tuning in each day who would miss it if it disappeared.

Actually all the cool creatives are hanging out at another blog.

It's just you losers here.

That fear of rejection you've had since childhood?

Justified.

The cool kids don't like you.

Actually 9.13 - I run this blog and I've been too busy donkey punching your wife and mother to upload anything more than my man load on those dearest to you. I hardly speak to them afterwards either.

Funnily enough the word verification on this post is WAY VD. Something you may catch off your mother soon.

That you Neil? Where have you been - trapped in a mine somewhere?? The natives are getting restless. Speaking of mines, I still reckon that the two weeks it took to find & free the Aussie miners could have been slashed to an hour (less ad breaks) if someone had called International Rescue.
