The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


I Am A Muse …

So a while back, Marcus [remember him?] sent me this …

Like him, I immediately thought it looked like me.

Then I looked again and I am convinced it’s me.

Sure, the glasses are wrong, but the rest is scarily right … so scarily right, I swear it has been taken from this video.

Now of course, there is a chance this is all one massive coincidence which would mean one of two things.

1. There is someone very, very unlucky out there.

2. If this ad career goes to shit, my calling appears to be in Tech Support.

Comment by andy@cynic

Perfect description.

Comment by DH

it could mean something else campbell. you have a cosmic fucking twin out there who is living the shithole life you should be fucking living.

Comment by andy@cynic

Oh I know that without a cartoon version of me telling me.

Comment by Rob

The thought of 2 of you is too much for me to deal with. But if there is a Rob version of you who works in tech support, I bet he’s going to get pulled for hacking in to bank accounts any day soon.

Comment by DH

“How do I print a video?”
Definitely talking to a planner.

Comment by DH

I don’t know what scared me more.
The thought of a Rob evil twin (and which twin is evil?)
Or the idea that someone thought one of Rob’s videos was the correct place to find a catch all tech support image. In fact, the thought that someone decided watch the video at all

Comment by northern

Thanks for making me sound like a member of the Menendez brothers.

Comment by Rob

That’s a scary illustration. But not as scary as the idea Rob works in tech support. I use the word work lightly, obviously.

Comment by Bazza

The automation of marketing.

Comment by John

Hahahahaha.

Comment by Rob

Bet that is Rob. His way of getting more money and more holidays.

Comment by DH

that sounds far too fucking possible.

Comment by andy@cynic

Yes.

Comment by Bazza

Now there’s an idea …

Comment by Rob

Given that you won’t have been able to resist watching yourself again, let’s get this straight – when you say that “we’ll be promoting robots”, that’s not futurism. The real lesson of this video remains the reminder that your colleagues refuse to socialise with you.

Comment by John

Surely Robert would want to promote robots? Wifi enabled ones especially.

Comment by George

Well the context of what I said had nothing to do with futurism as you well know John. However as for the reference to my colleagues not wanting to socialise with me … that’s as true now as it was then.

Comment by Rob

you know how they say opposites attract? you fucking prove that statement is a load of bollocks. and there sure as shit is no one who is similar to you. thank fucking god.

Comment by andy@cynic

Maybe there is an army of Campellbots out there.

Comment by John

That is a confronting likeness.

Comment by George

Alarming.

Comment by Lee Hill

You are more a mule than a muse.

Comment by Billy Whizz

This means your future involves dealing with stupid questions from clients – now it makes sense.

Comment by John

not as stupid as questions from planners. especially when the fuckers are trying to comment on creative work. it would be hilarious if you didnt want to smash them in the fucking face.

Comment by andy@cynic

I’m still here. Lurking. Waiting.

Comment by Marcus

By the way… they’re running another ad with you. You are now ‘content’.

Comment by Marcus Brown

Is the same picture? Please say it’s a new one with sandals

Comment by northern

New picture. Him behind his desk. Red background. Really shit.

Comment by Marcus Brown

With his lifestyle, of course he’s content.

Comment by John

[…] It was for some tech support social platform and – alarmingly – featured an illustration that looked very much like me. […]
