Merger she wrote

There's been a whole heap of industry chatter about the proposed merger of Publicis and Omnicom, a merger that would create the biggest holding company in all the world (but would still pale in comparison to Google). And, in true modern style, there's already a parody Twitter account ('This is a parody. But then again, isn't the ad industry') that's skewering the combined entity. 

Here are some of our favourites. 

Michael Roth says we are 'too big to fail'. We completely disagree. We are totally big enough to fail.
