Yea. We know. There's really no redeeming quality nor reason to mention this new campaign featuring the Kardasian sister's pimping their new Beach Bunny swimwear line except for the fact it's summer and it's hot and they're hot. Well, that's a matter of opinion but they're wearing bathing suits and, well, it's summer so, yea, that justifies this.
In every career, there are always a few times we'd all like to just get up and leave. Trouble is, we have to eat and we need a place to live hence the perpetual need for money. So no matter how much we might hate our jobs, leaving isn't always an option.
Unless, of course, you are someone like Alex Bogusky who, as we all know, has left MDC to "pursue a number of issues apart from advertising." With an annual salary of $2 million, the man certainly has a cushion. But, as BNET's Jim Edwards uncovered, the $38,974,000 MDC paid as earnout to agency founders, Bogusky is set for life.
We're not complaining. We're not jealous. The man is a major figure in the advertising industry and has contributed much to the business. Of course, parting with $38,974,000 "in these economic times" never sits well with the industry's hoi polloi.
When you write about advertising every day, suffering de ja vu every once in a while comes with the job. Today, Julia Stiles is the cause of our ailment. She's in a new Stoli commercial in which she talks to herself and debates the merits of going commercial versus staying indi.
Though the ad is new, we could swear we've seen it before. Maybe it's because we couldn't stand watching Hugh Hefner talk to himself and we conjured Julia instead.Anyway, anytime we can see Julia Stiles is a good time so we're not going to complain.
