Apparently, Bob From Accountemps Is In High Demand

Driving to work in Atlanta, I used to hear some really bad radio spots for Accountemps featuring some Spacely-from-the-Jetsons-type awful boss praising some guy called “Bob from Accountemps” while berating a squirrelly-voiced employee.

Lately, however, the campaign has taken a bit of a turn with Christopher Guest-style spots entitled, “Find Your Bob.”

FindYourBob.com has more information about Accountemps. Traction in San Francisco is the agency that created this new effort.
