… by simply pointing out that his advice for finding a good woman …

… could also be for finding a good client.

Sorry Bob. Blame the lovely Rebecca in Portland, because she’s the one that sent me this.

Can you hear the whirring? It’s Marley spinning in his grave.

Comment by DH

Nice blame throwing Rob, but Rebecca in Portland didnt put it on a moderately read blog for everyone else to see/vomit did she.

Comment by DH

Fair call.

Comment by Rob

And finally. Did Rebecca in Portland suggest Marley’s lyrics could be reinterpreted as a blueprint to winning good clients or was that horror move your idea? To be honest Rob, history isn’t on your side on this one.

Comment by DH

To be honest, I genuinely can’t remember … but as you said, it’s more likely I did it than her. Oh the shame.

Comment by Rob

Don’t worry Rob, the Hendrix foundation have done far worse to Jimi’s legacy than this. From vodka to a short lived shampoo, if there’s a dime in it, they’ve sold him out to get it.

seems the bob marley car has not yet been made, so who knows where this post might lead..

Yes, that is rather good.

Maybe I could be ‘true to brand’ and make the brakes faulty so the car keeps ‘jammin”.


Comment by Rob

I thought you “worked” in advertising, “jammin” should obviously refer to what happens to the competition’s vehicles – whereas the marleymobile would ensure a carefree journey as far-I as you wished to go.

Fuck that, have you seen this?

Campbell talks to him last week and now he’s in hospital? Coincidence? I don’t fucking think so.

I am innocent and any Smiths fan that says otherwise will be hearing from my lawyer. Or something.

You didn’t a ‘paired depth’ with a hooker or something did you?

Comment by northern

No, I simply gave him the number of the samaritans because he sounded like he needed them. Was that wrong?

Comment by Rob

Just for balance Robert, this could also be used as a rulebook for companies choosing their agency.

Comment by Lee Hill

Get up stand up.

Media Arts prefers Girls Aloud, specifically. ‘No Good Advice’

Comment by northern

Don’t you mean Brotherhood of Man or Bucks Fizz.

Comment by Rob

To be precise, Media Arts really loves James Brown – Talkin Loud Not Saying Nothing (and well excuse the double negative)

Comment by northern

I would love you to write a book on your experience. So short and yet so impactful.

Comment by Rob

I just showed this to the son of a friend and he said, “who is Bob Marley?”

The youth of today.
