Mad Men 2.0
Yellow Mama threw some of my flash from a while back up today. I think I wrote the piece when I got 86ed by a weasel for calling him out on not doing his job. Later, it was discovered that said weasel was, in fact, not doing his job and was fired too. Hell, if I were king half the agency should have been shitcanned, scam artists hiding behind a few genius talents. Oh well. The ad game is ruthless sometimes. Let's call it Mad Men 2.0 or 3.0...or whatever. I called it "BLUNT" Read it here.
