Ride The Barkley Rocket To Another Reality

The Daily Biz points to Barkley’s Mentorship Program, which is “dedicated to advertising enlightenment and transformation.” Barkley claims that “qualified students will come to Kansas City to live, learn and create amazing work in an advertising utopia.” Which leads me to wonder what qualities an advertising utopia might embody. Maybe there’d be no bad ads there, or even better, no ads at all.
