This Is Not An April Fools …

So today is a national holiday which means only one thing.

Yep, I’m on holiday again.

I know … I know …

But if you think that’s annoying, I’m going to be on holiday again on Friday.

And then the week after, I’m going to be in Tokyo again.

Which means there won’t be many posts this week or next.

But if you’re still kind of in shock at …

1. How lucky you are.

2. How I have managed to pull this off again.

… wait until you read this, it’s going to fuck your mind.

I’ll touch on it tomorrow. I have a feeling you’re going to have a lot to say about it.

I’m not sure what I’m shocked about most. Another holiday. You teaching creativity to kids on behalf of Dan Wieden. Or your photo with a smiling face and photoshopped muscled arms. It’s all too much for me to take on a Sunday evening.

Comment by DH

His arms do look like Popeye’s, after consuming spinach. It must be shadows, I refuse to accept any other possibility.

Comment by George

the only time campbell, now known as wannabe but never will be jason statham, smiles is when hes about to fuck someone over. id be afraid for my fucking life if i was one of his students. or the idiots paying his salary.
id still sign up for it though. it would be memorable as fuck for all possible fucking reasons.

Does this mean you’re going to work?

Comment by Bazza

He’ll give them a book to read and tell them they have 6 months to do an assignment on it. He’s going to have more holidays than ever. Best planning he’s ever done.

Comment by DH

Congratulations Robert. This is brilliant news for everyone involved, the students, Wieden and you. But does this mean you are doing the teaching full time?

Comment by George

of course he will. double fucking enormous salary. someone call an ambulance, uncle dan has officially gone fucking mad.

Comment by andy@cynic

Definitely doing both George … but not for reasons of ‘double pay’ as Andy suggests [there isn’t any, based on the fact they think I should probably start earning my salary after almost 6 years] but because I want to do both and I think/hope I’ve found a way to do it. Guess we shall see …

Comment by Rob

the world has gone fucking fucking mad.

Comment by andy@cynic

Congratulations Robert, smart decision by Wieden. There are some students who are going to be very fortunate.

Comment by Lee Hill

For those saying ‘congrats’, thank you.

For those saying ‘what is Wieden thinking’, I agree with you.

Now I’m off to enjoy my day off. So there.

If you destroy “stuff”, it ceases to exist and thus cannot be liberated.

Comment by john

If you’re always on holiday, you canot be working.

Comment by john

They’re not all connected John. Some things – as you well know – need destroying. Like this blog. Mind you, that would mean you’re all liberated, so maybe they are all connected. Who knew?!

Comment by Rob

Since disruption requires a new entrant that is not as good as the incumbent but slightly cheaper, I’m not sure it applies to this blog.

Comment by john

why are you quoting tbwa shit. what the fuck has got into you doddsy?

Comment by andy@cynic

I’m citing Clay Christensen not some agency’s Cliff notes version of it.
