CAMPAIGN DIARY

Glad to see that the comedian, Harry Enfield, hasn’t lost his trademark sense of humour when he was shovelling disdain on the advertising industry in the Sunday Telegraph at the weekend.

Glad to see that the comedian, Harry Enfield, hasn’t lost his

trademark sense of humour when he was shovelling disdain on the

advertising industry in the Sunday Telegraph at the weekend.



After stating quite openly that he thought it was advertising executives

that got paid ridiculous amounts and not actors, he went on to say that

HHCL & Partners should never have won awards for ’best original idea’

for his Mercury ads.



They were, he claimed, characters from his TV show and the advertising

industry just didn’t appreciate the irony.



Of course not. Just the same as Telegraph readers, along with the

industry’s ’sycophantic’ Campaign magazine, are not going to appreciate

the irony of a millionaire TV star who believes advertising folk earn

pounds 50,000 a year for ten minutes of copy.
