Tall Tales From Miami’s Advertising Legends

Sam Crispin, Chuck Porter and Alex Bogusky got together in a room in Miami today. For students of the business, this is great source material.

At 18:00 minutes in, Porter recalls how all the account people at the agency used to hate Alex and “wish he was dead.” Classic. The news of which leads Bogusky to smile slyly and remind Porter how he solved that problem. By promoting him. Classic.
