VIDEO- The New Account Man Pop-Up






So I was sitting in a meeting a couple of days ago hearing, not listening, to someone superfluously pre-selling an ad to a client. Now please don't get me wrong, I think pre-selling is important, target, insight, creative strategy, 'campaignability' etc...
But, most pre-sell I hear involves someone explaining execution to someone else who in many cases is a member of the addressed audience which makes the need to explain cause for worry.
This is the part of the meeting where my hearing shuts off and escapism kicks in as I begin to imagine how funny it would be if we had an account man pop out of every magazine ad...

Thought it might look something like THIS!

Many thanks to 'Dolla Sign Doxy' for the much needed comedic input.

How true this is...My concern lies in the age and experience of some of the people who tend to sell execution...
Great Post X, any way we can get a hold of the video itself?
