Mullen Copywriter Releases Rap Album, Examines Agency Life
For an ironic peep inside the world of agency life, a new album, Straight Out of Winston, from Mullen Winston-Salem Copywriter "StrataG" (aka Joe Beutel) and others from the agency peers inside the walls of agency life rapper-style. Whether exploring the obsession over awards, the pain of writer's block, the illogic of "creating a viral," the war of art direction or the stupidity of focus groups, the album pokes fun at life as an advertising professional.
If you work in an agency, you will identify completely with the sentiment of this album. If you are a client and work with an agency, you'll get a good look behind

I also think that one of the main goals of the album & site is to used as a recruitment tool 4 young talent. Progressive way to go about it.
I am gonna go light my ears on fire. Worst thing I've ever heard
Reminds me of The Onion's thug accountant, Herbert Kornfield.
Straight up representin' accountz receivable before his untimely demise.
where's weird al when you need him
It's hack. Like all the work coming out of Mullen Winston Salem.
I would rather listen to that song "Informer" by Snow. On repeat for a week straight. Full volume. While chewing gum someone else already chewed.
wow...people talk tough when they've got the internet to hide behind.
Mullen is apparently grasping for straws at this point. Sad.
Hmm...I wonder if "wiremill" works at Mullen Winston Salem.
Maybe Mullen Winston Salem gets so many books that they've had enough and decided to release an anti-recruitment tool.
GENIUS! Incredibly successful!
I like it. I think it's really hip and cool.

This is one of those rare occasions where I'm actually embarrassed for the people involved in creating something.
Yes, it is really bad and cheezy. It's SUPPOSED to be. I'm feeling that some of the commenters on this board have no idea what satire is. And from what i've heard, Mullen in W-S is as bad as these songs describe so at least they're honest.
You know the old saying "There's no such thing as bad publicity?"
Well, that doesn't apply to this.
A little late to the Tea Partay.
"satire" would be releasing one track. Pathetic and suspiciously sincere is going full-album length. Perception is reality.
