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


The State Of Adland In [Another] Picture …

Yes I know I wrote about this just a few weeks ago … and this is my attempt to ease us back into working life … but the wonderful Mr Weigel misguidedly sent me a photo [he was jet lagged, so he forgot how stupid an idea this was] that highlights how the downturn in traditional adspend is having an impact on the entire industry.

This …

Let’s face it, when one of the best agencies in the World is diversifying to make some coin, it must be bad.

On the plus side, when my mates at Adam&Eve see this post and tell me to go “screw myself”, I’ll interpret that as them offering me a solution, not being angry. Perfect.

Your ability to switch from emotional openness to idiot still amazes me.

Good post yesterday. This one is approaching the barrel scraping standards of last weeks post on the pink front door. That you throw Martin Weigel under the bus just makes you even more of a maniac.

Another agency where you’re a marked man.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Marked in a good or bad way?

Comment by George

What do you think?

Comment by Billy Whizz

He has a track record of situations turning in his favour.

Comment by George

I don’t think Adam and Eve could ever be that stupid.

Then, I did think the same about Wieden, Google and R/GA.

Cue: evil laugh.

You can try all you like to appear a Bond villain, but we all know why they hired you, what you achieved and the people you developed. I’m one of them.

Crawler.

Comment by Bazza

That’s very kind of you Pete but you do know I am not responsible for your payrise anymore?

Comment by Rob

I have a feeling Martin, in his jet-lagged state, didn’t even register the product being sold, just that it came from Adam and Eve. I still believe in your professionalism Martin. Robert on the other hand…..

Comment by George

Your compliment to Martin makes him sound fucking repressed.

Comment by Billy Whizz

I don’t think Martin would want us discussing his abilities at recognising sex toys while suffering jetlag on this blog or anywhere.

Comment by George

if hes got any fucking sense he wouldnt want anyone talking about him in the same sentence as campbell. thats far fucking worse.

Comment by andy@cynic

I don’t think you have to worry about having “mates” at Adam & Eve any longer Rob. You may be pushing your luck having Martin as a friend as well.

Comment by Pete

Wow, you’ve all been busy character destroying me haven’t you? Hahaha. Mind you, you’re saying I’m doing that to Martin and Adam and Eve so it’s probably fair.

Comment by Rob

Oh Robert.

Comment by Lee Hill

Yo and he are clearly the dream-team.

Comment by John

Yo? Are you trying to be 90’s cool again John?

Comment by Rob

Just copying your Twitter style. #hugeconcept

Comment by John

let’s be honest, Martin allowed himself to be photographed next to you wearing a Birkenstock t-shirt, the fact he searched for sex t toys while travelling will have limited further damage to his credibility

Comment by Northern

dont know what photo youre talking about and dont fucking want to but i wonder if weigel looked for sex toys after it.

planners. fucking pervs.

Comment by andy@cynic

Can you imagine what it would be like at one of their courses?

Comment by Northern
