I don’t think he really got the tattoo. The camera gets blurry on the C/U shots and moves to his feet. Seems like a hoax

I can tell you everyone hated it at the office and we were all making fun of the kid for it. We are hoping he doesn’t get hired Also... the tattoo artist kinda sucked. Not a good tattoo at all

I’ve looked at his portfolio and his work is good. I think this stunt got our attention but if he does get hired for an “internship” at R/GA, it’s going to hopefully be based on his work.

Cheap stunt. RGA shouldn’t have fallen for it. They should have made a point about saying it takes more than that to get in the door. Take a stand about making smart work.

... it's for the internship program. I agree this was extraordinary stupid for so many reasons, but it's not like interns are able to demonstrate smart work. They're friggin interns.

Who’s going to tell the poor kid that R/GA will suck the life out of him and then dispose of him when he’s empty?

Lol this is by far the stupidest thing I've ever seen. And for rga. It's sad because I'd make fun of him more, but I'm desperately trying to get a junior position with two internships and a year of experience under my belt and I've barely been able to get the time off day from anyone. So... Anyone know a good tattoo artist?

funnylike

On his gf's Instagram, there isn't a tattoo. Hey, he got everyone talking and went viral. Good results if it is fake.

Sad but true

Anyway, is the tat real?

like

Honestly, I don’t think it’s real. The camera angles were set-up to make it seem that way. If you really got this done, why wouldn’t you show the needle going in and get close up? Show the grimaces on his face while he’s getting it done? It would be easy enough to create a temp tattoo and fake the visit. That would also be why the “redness” around the tat wasn’t “quite right” from my experience. I figured he did the video production around this to show how good his work was to create something and make it look real. Also agree with others that most tattoo artists I know (including mine) would refuse to do face work.

He probably made a video like this for 10 different agencies.

Reminds me of the President of Xbox tattooing the GTAIV logo on his arm to announce the game coming to Xbox.

It was seen as tryhard, especially since he did the stunt to announce Halo 2 (which at least was an exclusive for Xbox).

I really hope this is fake....

https://instagram.com/rudeht Hope that tatt makes up for the brain he lacks.

Other than the tattoo which might not even be real, what makes you say that?

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
