Luke Sullivan Gets Roasted, Lightly

With Luke Sullivan departing GSD&M to become head of the advertising program at SCAD, some enterprising co-workers of his have put together WhippleRoast, which features many video tributes, including this one from Lee Clow.

My own Luke story is that I met him, briefly, as an ad school grad showing my book at Fallon. And Luke, true to form, was very friendly, telling me about the book he was working on at the time, called “Hey Whipple, Squeeze This.” (he didn’t actually look at my book; others did, which might explain his friendliness.)

Luke did however, serve as an inspiration for an early Talent Zoo column entitled Hey Luke, Squeeze This. SCAD is lucky to be getting him.

You can also see various comments about Luke by following the #WhippleRoast hashtag on Twitter.
