Giving Young Hungry Guys What They Want

It has been said that talented young people have little motivation to join the ad business today.

Naturally, that is a steaming pile of horse shit. For one, you could find yourself at 72andSunny working on Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr. and “giving young hungry guys what they want.”

Or you could be working at TeamOne, dreaming up an idea for Lexus that focuses on the challenges presented by Tori Praver’s curves.

[UPDATE] It is okay to speak up and say what a sexist load of crap this is. That’s what we’re here for.

Seriously, a swimwear model has curves, and guess what? So do racetracks! Puh leeze.



About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
