Campaign Diary: Pond-Jones quits GGT for the sake of his old mum? Erm, not really

Silly agency names have long caused consternation among some non-advertising people. It is certainly going to affect what we write on the billboards we put up around Soho with details of what Campaign’s big news is.

You may have seen one a couple of weeks ago about Jay Pond-Jones leaving

GGT to go to work with Robert Saville at Mother.



Jay was doing his usual weekly round of parties when, at a music biz do,

he came across a lady who had seen the poster proclaiming ’Pond-Jones

quits GGT for Mother’. Completely unaware that she was talking to the

subject of the story, she confided that she had always thought all

advertising people were a selfish, egotistical lot and that work was the

only thing they ever thought about. Consequently, she couldn’t believe

the generosity of this guy, whom she could only describe as

’Pond-something’. It turns out that she thought he’d left the agency

because his mother was unwell.



Sweet.
