Gee, I remember these guys back in the late 1990's
when they were considered a couple of juniors working in the unglamourous Direct division at, er, um, Saatchi's.

Love, Monty

When are you guys going to realise it's not all about 30 second TV spots?

Correct:

Online grows, TV slows

6:35.

Whatever the stats might be, there's only one measurement that counts:

When you tell people that you work in advertising, do they ask you what online ads you've done recently?

No, they only want to know what TV ads you've done.

Frankly, online is only of any interest to the award-obsessed. Which is most of you tossers who work in advertising!

All of which proves how out of touch you are with the real world.

Anything else I can clear up?
