Copywriter, art director and an account manger are on shoot in the desert. They wander off as the crew breaks for lunch and stumble across a magic lamp. The art director picks it up, brushes off the sand and a genie pops out… granting them 3 wishes… AD: I wish I was in Paris living the life of a famous artist. Celebrated and revered the world over… Poof, she disappears... The CW thinks for a moment, then turns to the genie… CW: I wish I was an internationally celebrated author; living in Spain, running with the bulls, and finally publishing “the great American novel.”… Poof, he disappears.... Deep in thought, the account guy seems troubled—-clearly weighing all the life-changing options before him... He finally turns to the genie... AM: I wish those primadonnas were back here so we can walk the client through the next setup.

Kicking it off: A Creative Director and an Art Director go out for a beer. AD says “this beer is pretty good.” CD says “No, it’s terrible” and takes the beer beneath the bar, pisses in the glass, and then takes a sip. “Now it’s pretty good”

This is a true story: We designed a simple print ad with a stock photo of a woman in a park. Client: “We love everything, but can we retouch the image?” Us: “Of course, what do you want changed?” Client: “We want to keep that exact image but instead make the woman Mexican” .....does anyone know where I can find that command in Photoshop? 😂😂😂

True story: David Ogilvy and team are about to share a final new biz pitch to clients. They have a time limit to present and a bell rings when their time is up. They arrive to discover they are to present to an auditorium filled with executives. Ogilvy looks around and asks, “who here decides the winning agency?” An executive replies quizzically, “Well...we all do.” Ogilvy says, “Well you can ring that bell now.”

Another true story. i was the agency producer on the project Me as we pull up to the location: “ok so base camp is right around the corner and you can see across the street the wide shot is being set up” Client: why are we shooting here. This place is a dump. This isn’t our brand image “ Me : this exactly what we showed you on the shooting board. This is what we discussed and what you approved” Client : “ I know I approved this but I didn’t think we were shooting here “. You just can’t fix stupid. All you can do is muffle it with gorilla tape

True story: I worked for on a healthcare brand in the laboratory space for a while. Obvs, we used a lot of shots of blood in test tubes. While reviewing a contact sheet, one of our main clients asked us, straight-faced, “do all these samples have to be the same color?” Nope. No they don’t. Not on the Planet Vulcan.

True story: We were filming customer testimonials for a chain restaurant. They had just revamped their whole concept and built a “store of the future” near our office. The AE gives me the shoot location: it’s the dusty old location across town. I ask, “why aren’t we shooting at the store of the future?” He says, completely matter-of-fact, “because the store of the future isn’t the direction the company is headed.”

Hi all, I graduated with a BS in CS several months ago. I started a new role in which it is temporarily remote for the remainder of the year. However, that might not be the case after that. I'm currently working as an Assistant Scrum Master. I was wondering if I would be able to be referred to a consulting role in or around Houston, TX. Thanks! Happy to connect.

Any tips for how to figure out if a project is going to have miserable WLB? I know that consulting (esp strategy) is known for rough hours sometimes, but after a project with 2 months of 8am-2am hours + weekend work, I’m really shell-shocked and want to do what I can to avoid that experience. Are consistent 80+ hour weeks just a reality I need to accept? Do I need to change jobs? Help!

Over halfway thru a project and my associate has not done a single thing proactively - either a task is explicitly laid out for them or nothing’s done. They’re new to the firm but had 3 years professional experience prior incl. consulting so I’m having a hard time understanding. I feel like I’ve laid out a bunch of frameworks, open-ended problems, etc., but can’t build any traction. Any suggestions re: 1) diagnosing or 2) addressing the issue?
