The Campaign A List

They say no one reads the A List apart from the people who are in the A List.

But I did. And I've rootled out the funny(ish) bits, for you.

What would you change about yourself? I'd have a tail (Graham Fink)

Best thing about your job? The frisson of staff fear as I stride to my desk every morning (Leon Jaume)

Worst thing about your job? The constant backdrop of distant, mocking laughter (Leon Jaume)

The biggest lie you've ever told? The one about advertising (Trevor Beattie)

What would you change about yourself? My constant fucking swearing (Ringan Ledwidge)

Your USP? Tits and balls (Kate Stanners)

If you could be anyone else in the business, who would it be? I'd have Beattie's head, Davidson's gut and Craigen's hollow legs. I'd be a fucking ripsnorting ad monster (Ben Walker)

Advice for a wannabe A Lister Work every weekend (Tim Delaney)

Hey Tim! You're never getting those weekends back. Yeah, that's right. The ones you could have been spending with your family. And now Leagas Delaney is a washed-up carcass. Was it worth it? You can cling to having the right to give a bunch of pointless meaningless answers in this booklet, but honestly...

Doubt any of its gonna make the stand-up circuit.

Why would anyone work weekends?! Surely you wanted a job in advertising because it'd be more enjoyable than busting a gut in a dead-end job for the next 40 years?

Ben Walker wanting to be an ad monster? Er, aren't you half way there mate?heh

Can't fault his choices, though.
I'd only add Juan Cabral's accent. Clients seem to surrender to a good ol' Argentine accent.

And Braze's lack of interest in his department. More time for him to do the briefs.

You should all be asking yourselves who Joe Koprowski is.

Read Mark Tutssel's bullshit. That's got to have been written by a PR person - the bit about Mobile cracked me up although he probably didn't intend it that way

Any further gems from Tiger Savage?

It's worth having a look at Anca's fantastic blog and read the latest entry dedicated to Dave Trott. Who would have thought that a game of 'guess the song lyric' would have led to such a profound personal revelation.

To Anon asking about Tiger Savage this is from a previous thread

Tiger Savage: Q: If you could be anyone else in the business who would it be? A: Charles Saatchi - because he keeps himself to himself.

What? I would have thought as a desperate self publicist she'd hate to keep herself to herself.

Tiger's USP is 'Tiger Savage', which is spot on, actually.

Then she goes all crap again with the answer to what's your favourite shop? Too many to mention.

Scrolling to the bottom of the list, I mistakenly attributed the headline 'The ten biggest cocks in advertising' to this lot of recherche shit.
Or perhaps not mistakenly.
