Lack of American Food Sends Goodby Creative Team Back Home


We love these little nuggets concerning the real reason why people change jobs. A tipster tells us, "Two Wieden + Kennedy creatives are heading back to Goodby after only slightly more than a year in Europe. Creative team Hunter Hindman and Rick Condos have asked for their old jobs back in San Francisco, The spin: family reasons.The reality: they constantly bitched about the food and lack of American things and missed Rich Silverstein's hand on creative management style." So there you have it. Even more irrelevantly important news you can't live without.

Typical spoiled, bland Americans. How disturbing that a couple of supposedly creative guys cannot enjoy the adventure and sheer gastronomic pleasure of the food abroad. My 12 years overseas have left me aching for foreign foods!

Don't agree with you Garath - Amsterdam is not an adventure. It's rated the most boring and blend town on earth. The food is bad and the no-service even worse. Good luck to them in SF.

if that really is the reason: idjits.

All they had to do is hop a train to Antwerp. Tons of incredible tasty food and more tasty beer than Homer and Barney could handle.

Or for a long weekend there's plenty cheap flights all over Europe. France, Italy, Spain. I'll give up Kansas steak for all that any day.

And people wonder why some of the world thinks Americans are lame-o. They gots to get back to the soy lattes and the In and Out Burgers and the Whole can see all that European culture stuff on the internets!
