Isn't the whole point of this article to parody exactly that? I.e. the idea that many in the industry don't know what they're doing, which leads to all the flashy/fishy practices described in the article?
Not wanted in that agency were you? Cheer up.
Awful. Badly written, terribly made, no idea. I have no idea why you would PR this level of work.
Agency Wnk. The cold hard experience of being agencyside provides an understanding that most staffers even C level ad-types have no clue what they're doing.

Who’s it for: Icebreaker by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: Motion Sickness has blended storytelling with an ad in this beautifully shot video for Icebreaker.

It's a good way to get to know those who are responsible for bringing to life the homes for G.J. customers.
