It’s a brutal Tuesday for one unlucky ad school student as he just totally got told.
After posting a parody of the Bob Dylan Chrysler ad which was picked up by AgencySpy, the ad school student, perhaps expecting accolades or maybe even just a few laughs, instead just got straight up told.
The teller, Nigel, pointed out that the student had not yet “earned the right” to parody the work of “people actually working in the business.”
“Nigel said that about commercial parodies? Well, shit. I guess we’ll stop,” said SNL creator Lorne Michaels . “That sucks. People love our commercial parodies, but I don’t think our staff writers have earned that right yet”
“I think one of them worked at Ogilvy once,” he added. “Let me check with Seth.”
