It's from a movie called 'Crazy People.'

Well worth seeking out. It's about an advertising agency that uses mental patients to write their ads.

Some of them are very, very funny.

Thanks to Karl Marx for ripping it for me...

"Volvos. They're boxy, but they're good."

Another good bit is when he's convincing the MD (in the clip on the blog), that the room full of patients in dressing gowns can be the new creative department.

"They'll be great, watch. Who here wants to be in advertising?"

Feverish show of hands...

MD (not convinced): "Hang on a second. Who here wants to be a fire engine?"

Same feverish show of hands...

Come IN Jamaica.


(for a scary movie.)

Pancreatic cancer.. maybe. Flavour? For sure.

Awesome film.

As an interesting sidelight, I was a junior copywriter when this film was released. Our client was the distributor, UIP. This was one of the only films the client let us develop local material for the Oz market. The US poster, unvbelievably, had no reference to the advertising theme of the movie in its poster. So we convinced the client that hey, advertising sells, and got not one, but two lines on a new visual for the poster. One said: "There are two types of people in advertising: the committed, and those who deserve to be." The sign off was "Trust us, we're in advertising."

The new cigarette Cancer PICTURE warnings on Winfields, are accompanied by an "inside the pack lid" message - Anyhow have a Winfield.

Now that's truth in advertising.
