Good on 'em. I wonder if they'll be given any briefs. Or will Ben and Josh get all the good ones.

Let the Ben and Josh defence begin....

Ain't a hope in hell,
Nothing's gonna bring us down,
The way we fly,
Five miles off the ground,
Because we shoot to kill,
And you know we always will,
It's a Bomber
Scream a thousand miles,
Feel the black death rising moan,
Firestorm coming closer,
Napalm to the bone,
Because, you know we do it right,
A mission every night,
It's a Bomber
No night fighter,
Gonna stop us getting through,
The sirens make you shiver,
You bet my aim is true,
Because, you know we aim to please,
Bring you to your knees,
It's a Bomber

Those guys have been doing good work for years. Not surprised they've moved onto one of the best agencies in Melbourne. I just hope the hierarchy there doesn't stop them from continuing their good run.

Listen up 1.41pm - Jim really is a fashion victim, you cruel bastard!

He had all his clothes, (yep, every single item) stolen from a laundrette in Richmond and understandably is very sensitve about his clothing.

You're the tosser, you tosser.

What the fuck have these guys actually done apart from hide in the closet and not get fired. I was there mentor at Award School and I wanted to bash them for delivering shit ideas. One of them slept with my grandma (I won't name names but take a look at the photo and you'll work it out). And the other one just jacked off in the corner. They are a good team though.

am i wrong or does it look like they're holding hands in this photo.

if they haven't come out yet, I give them 3 months in a room with James McGrath and they'll be wearing their nipple-tassles to work.

it looks like the photographer just dropped an evil fart and they're both half-cringing.....THAT"S LIFE FUCKERS.

It's 'they're', not there.

And what is 'holing'?

I shudder to think.

Years ago me and Murray Watt got flown to FCB Melbourne to work on some Honda pitch or something. Jim and Ben were just new in the agency and really keen to work with us. So we let them do everything. They worked like dogs and I'm pretty sure they won the business. Me and Murray got the credit though. Because we were older and that's how it works.

Ben C,

Just don't get mixed up with Ben C like that other time, you might accidentally get some good briefs put on your desk. I mean, you might just get some good briefs put on your desk regardless, but either way, you look good in briefs.
