We’re a little late on this one, but an AgencySpy commenter really let another commenter have it yesterday.
The bloodbath went down in a thread about a GIF award show, where commenter “CD Villneuve” kicked things off by really letting all kinds of people and companies have it including McGarryBowen London, techno-hipsters, post-Bogusky CP+B, and people who attempt to “harness grassroots internet culture.” But it wasn’t until commenter “Naysayer” jumped in to say that he actually liked the idea that things really got interesting.
And by “things really got interesting,” we mean “he really let him have it.”You may remember “CD Villneuve” from other AS threads where he really let hipsters, prankvertising, responsive Twitter campaigns and SF agency Argonaut have it.
Bad news this morning for Draftfcb Chicago as commenter “Navable” has confused their new campaign for KFC with a fart.
The campaign, “How Do You KFC?,” is actually “a new movement celebrating the connection KFC fans have with the food” and not, in fact, a fart.
How’s your week going? Okay? So-so? Kinda meh, but y’know, tomorrow’s Friday so whatever, things could be worse? You must not be in the ad school business, then, as commenter “The Old Man in the Mountain” has single-handedly taken down the portfolio school business model, dashing the hopes and dreams of hundreds of would-be creatives and burning millions of dollars in future ad school revenue in the process with a mere 34 words in the AgencySpy comments section.
Posted in response to a student project that he wanted to criticize, the commenter offered up sage-like, almost ethereal words of wisdom for free that hundreds of future creatives would have paid tens of thousands of dollars to hear.
“This is really not good for us,” said Ron Seichrist, the now-ruined co-founder of Miami Ad School. “Luckily Pippa has her real estate license and I’m a registered notary public. So, y’know, we should be cool.”
“The Old Man In The Mountain? Fuck that guy,” said Norm Grey, Founder & ECD of Creative Circus. “Seriously,” he added. “Right in his fuckwad ass.”
No word yet from The Old Man In The Mountain or the Miami Ad School creatives in question, but we can only assume that this is the beginning of a long-lasting creative mentorship that will be professionally fulfilling for all parties involved for the foreseeable future.
Update: Turns out all you need is a print ad for toothpaste and a banner ad for spaghetti sauce.
A bit of sad news to round out your Wednesday as commenter “Ed Lopernaukeriz” has died after watching an ad for new Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups.
The ad featured a couple — peanut butter and chocolate — going for couples therapy before promising that “the relationship between chocolate and peanut butter is about to change.” It remains unclear as to why the commenter decided to post an AgencySpy comment about his imminent death rather than alerting the authorities, but you know how these ad people are.
Rest in peace, Ed Lopernaukeriz. We hardly knew ye.
In a stunning show of solidarity with some Canadian guy named Tyler, commenter Shane Randall has boldly stepped forward to defend man’s right to get a tattoo of a taco in exchange for a lifetime supply of Doritos Locos Tacos from Taco Bell.
Supporting the defenseless Canadian in the face of vicious comments such as “Wow, that guy must be really stupid” and “At first I didn’t believe anyone could be so dumb but he sounds like he had bumped his head pretty hard,” Shane Randall stepped forward to point out that it’s “no different than a guy with a maple leafs emblem,” although it’s not for him, but again that’s what he likes and he get paid for it.
In a stunning turn of rhetorical play, he also pointed out that leafs fans don’t get free tickets for life in exchange for getting a tattoo of the team’s logo.
“Way to go,” he added.
No word yet from Tyler, Taco Bell, or the Toronto Maple Leafs, but we consider this argument pretty much over.
Must be a slow day at the agency as three separate commenters have actually taken time out of their days to respond to someone named “BigballzMghee.”
Posted in response to a derisive troll comment regarding the death of an 88 year old man, the three commenters took time out of their days to acknowledge the comment, call him an idiot, and question the commenter’s life accomplishments and legacy. No word yet on the identities of the commenters or what work projects were somehow less important than engaging with someone named “BigballzMghee,” but we imagine they must have been pretty awful.
Following news of a broken pipe at Leo Burnett Chicago, commenter “Mitch Kumstein” has taken the opportunity to let everyone know that he has smelled human shit and piss before.
You may remember Mitch from this boner joke.
