BBH Art Director Leaves. Steals Stuff. Films It. Sends Vid to Agency

BBH Art Director Andy Tider writes, "This week I decided to leave my position as an Art Director at BBH New York. This being BBH though, I couldn't just go out with a "goodbye letter". So I spent my last night as a BBH employee stealing everything that wasn't nailed down. On video. Then I sent it to the entire company. Our chairman, Steve Hearty called it "extraordinary". In fact, BBH people couldn't seem to get enough of the video. I guess I was just expressing what everyone wished they could do."

When we received this email from Andy, we were assuming we'd see some clandestine, commando-style video with Andy sneaking from cubicle to cubicle as he held his camera phone in one hand and his bag of goodies in the other. Nope. What we saw was a professionally produced video shot by a camera man other than Andy. There's even a scene where Andy "hides" from another employee to he won't be found out. Um, we're not buying it.

It seems like yet another agency ploy for publicity. We could be wrong but if you were leaving your job and decided to steal stuff would you film it and then send it to the entire agency? We think not and call shenanigans on this one. Andy.

I wasn't sure the reaction I'd get, but sure enough they loved it. Gotta love BBH'ers.

Are they for real? This video was a waste of time. Who gives a shit that this guy left anyway. BBH should stand for BIG BULLSHIT HO.

Wasn't he only an interactive art director?

Lol, I am sure he left a check for the snacks, beer, and pens that he took. Nothing else had value.

And Yiurt ...

I assume you're in traditional? Then I guess you can look forward to that pink slip in a couple weeks. No?

what a dick.

Uh, why are people ranking on this kid? It's funny. Who the fuck gets annoyed by something like this. It's just funny, that's it. This guy did something ballsy and fun and now ,typically, insecure ad people have to, like, critic it and stuff. Get a life. its doesnt seem like he was trying to win a Lion he was just trying to put a smile on people's faces.
