Dude. What’s With The Girl Sitting On Your Lap?



This clip was posted on a wonderfully scrabulous site I've just discovered (thanks Paul) called Agency Spy.

It's an interview with one Harry Bernstein - aka Harry B - a Senior Art Director at Berlin Cameron United in New York. Watch it and find out why it elicited comments including: "What a douche", "Punkassbitch... way too old to be wearing his hat like dat", and "This guy is a triple douche."

I bet he's wearing Converse One Star;-) Only American's can love themsleves so much and believe they are super-talented when they are barely average. What a bell-end

Toad said...

I worked at the same agency with him at one point.

He's a real person. (I'll leave it at that.)

And anonymous the last: only Euros wear Converse these days. American hipsters are all about obscure skateboard sneakers. Usually in some shade of brown. Extra points for some sort of argyle or skull & crossbones pattern.

Ha said "work hard play hard." He should have also said "you don't have to be mad to work here.... but it helps."
No wonder everyone thinks were all douches. What a douchebag.

Reminds me of a character from Derek & Clive who gave his address as Cunt, London. Just substitute New York.

this is indeed a great moment in douchery. no denying that.

but let it also serve as a reminder to all ad folk that, and apparently this lesson has to be learned YET again, we sound like tools when we talk on camera about what we do.

but he is a MONSTROUS tool. who is his English counterpart?

English Counterpart: Rob Clayman, DLKW. Washed up, Halifax-ad-writing doucheroonie.

Tiger Savage? Every time she gets her name in print it's to big up her wardrobe and mention the names of "famous" designer friends. Embarrassing

FWIW, he's not a player in the US. Pretty much under everyone's radar until this video.

oh he's a player now. heh!

always thought, as did everyone, that Tiger Savage was something that lived better in concept than reality. but she did snarl her way to the top. no arguing with.

unlike say, Harry B. whose chair-arm jewelry seems to be his biggest achievement to date.

Harry B !!! like he's one of the beastie boys!

i think his hat is in case he gets lost. must be. he travels a lot. makes sense.

I have it on good authority that Tiger never came up with the ads she did with Paul Silburn, and what did she do after working with him? That's right, fuck-all. I think she scales the heights of female douche-ism with fuck-brained skill.

He does that annoying 'check my mobile/BalckBerry' thing that so many people do in meetings/lame interviews

Is it true John Heg said "Claire Beale should sort her own shitty rag out. And get some food inside her"?Probably not.

i know this guy, he's so not a player in any sense,work or play.
He's not smart, gets by because his partner Griffin is the brains behind any work with his name attached....he's a real loser...
