Diary: Adland ridiculed: Part 2

At Campaign Towers, we occasionally try to amuse ourselves by coming up with animals or celebrities that could represent each ad agency. Unfortunately, we can't give any examples here in case they cause offence.

However, the folks at the anarchic US website 4chan, who have adopted a similar hobby, have no such qualms. Some of the biggest agencies in town are publicly skewered by the website, including DDB, summed up with the line "When you have no imagination, just copy your friends", and Fallon, characterised by a picture of a depressed-looking puppy in a bunny outfit with the sentiment: "I hate everything."
