Having Known Leo Burnett Makes You Old


Mike Yuhas over at AdFreak has a great You've been in advertising to long list if... list that recalls some really old ad markers like the DoubleMint Twins seeing you through puberty or actually saying you knew Leo Burnett versus saying you know Alex Bogusky when you're trying to pick someone up at an ad conference. The most depressing indicator: agency interns calling you Sir or Ma'am.

Well, I agree with the Leo Burnett comment. When I got out of college, my parent’s New York doorman introduced me to Maxwell Dane (of Doyle Dane Bernbach - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxwell_Dane ), another tenant, because the doorman thought Maxwell (who he said had something to do with advertising) might have an ad job for me. He didn’t.

So, yes…. It is time for me to get the hell out of this business!

But Peter it's more fun to watch the younger punks suffer!! Besides now I can blame all of my stupid stunts on gray roots.

you know you've been in advertising too long if the only diversity you're aware of involves your 401k plan.
