'Ad Guy Starter Kit' Helps Creatives


A hilarious site containing a Ronco-style TV commercial in the vein of all those other agency spoofs, called, "Ad Guy Starter Kit," provides those wishing to become super cool ad guys a kit which includes a dickie, soul patch (chin hair), certificate of creativity, eight piece tchotchke desk set, coffee shop card, bagel with cream cheese and, yes, a Creanus Award. The site was created by Young Isaac, a Columbus, Ohio-based ad agency. Of course, it's all virally and you're supposed to send it off to all your ad buddies.

Hilarious? Meh. You have no judgement. It's mildly amusing at best. Good idea. Bad execution. I'm glad you're not my creative director--you trash funny stuff and praise crap. Do you work at Saatchi NY? Either that or you're an account guy.

I was an account guy. Satisfied?

You must have a soul patch! You bitter do-nothing. Get back to work shoveling out 1/8 page ads...

I know Artie Isaac, President of Young Isaac. Artie Isaac is a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Artie Isaac.

um. whoa. and here i was going to talk about how crappy and cheesy the stream was and try not to mention that due to my chromosomes this obviously has nothing in it for me but you all carry on. yours is by far the more provocative diatribe.

I've never seen a creative guy with that look. Maybe at grey or mccann or y&r, but none of the actual 'creative' shops.
