Because the only way to really get a feeling for what’s going on in the world of advertising is to hear some of the gossip, here are a few things that I have overheard this past week and weekend, one even on an actual elevator.
“There is nobody I’ve met at BBH [London] that I think is particularly smart”
“I interviewed at Grey, but my first interview was mainly the HR lady talking about herself. It was weird.”
“Why be a bitch? You work at Y&R. That’s like the McDonald’s of ad agencies: very large and very well-known but not exactly quality.”
“Buchner [of Fallon] still hasn’t gotten over not winning Microsoft. He was certain it was in the bag.”
