P&G Encourage Stage Diving!


P&G's CEO or Head Proctoid A.G. Lafley urges companies to 'let go' or risk losing touch.
So the time has come when even the most pedantically obsessive compulsive research infested corporation is going to make the metaphorical stage dive...hmm is the stage goanna become redundant?

A.G. Lafley quotes always come in handy with conservative clients, more so a quote like this.

I just hate Russell Davies so much it's giving me nightmares about him. Shame on anyone for thinking his as an inspiration. Whilst he meets his bum chums to 'natter' over coffee and the newest software available so they can make their over theorised and boring blogs even easier on the eye, others are in fact working.

Apologies, but this is the most recent post and I was delighted to see someone slamming this chump with a mock blog.

I imagine his coffee mornings being so cringe worthy and quite close to a situation where everyone sits in a circle and places their right hand on the genitalia of person next to them.

His concepts on marketing theory are great, if you're a sci fi loon with nothing to do but dream over a world like in Minority Report. Otherwise he's filling us in on his dull and dreary observations, like someone in a shop putting up a poster - I can't even discuss this any further, it's making me too angry.

I can't, I really can't bring myself to have anything good to say about this false God that everyone seems to worship.

I remember being in a conference room in Saatchi's London when being read the LoveMarks commandments and looking around seeing a bunch of docile zombied faces all nodding and dribbling and thinking the same thing.

Rather than celebrate this fool, why not sacrifice him instead, he's better off in a tall Wicker man with flames licking his Starbucked up body.

Is that a bit much?

So if Russel gives you a buzz to come on round and work for him you would roll in with a box of matches?

Russel Davies is the epitome of an ad man, he stats the obvious in a flashy way. Granted there is nothign particularly original about him, but essentially he is the manifestation of advertising in a life form.

OH MY GOD!! Check this out, his most recent post which is his bullet in the head:

This post is by way of an apology. I'm way behind with my marking and all sorts. I owe you responses on the Maple Syrup assignment, and the last one. And I'm planning to write up some thoughts on the creative brief thing really soon. And I've not done anything about Post Of The Year, too late do you think? Just wait for Post Of The Month for January?

I have no excuses except for laziness, feckless time-wasting, being slightly over-whelmed by the response and the need to make a living. It's harder to get this stuff done when you're working for yourself rather than slacking off under the corporate yoke. I will get everything done just a bit after as soon as possible. Sorry.
