The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

Creative Boredom

Part of my job is running creative sessions for clients – helping them think outside of the cubicle they spend their lives in and maybe … just maybe … take the consumer into account and stop being so self obsessed for once.

So recently I was asked to participate in a creative session run by a research company [oxymoron anyone?] and without doubt, my favourite bit was when they asked all the participants to put on a KKK hat because – according to them – it would help us start to think like consumers.

I have no reason why they believed putting on a paper hat would help us [and we certainly weren't targeting racists] but there we were, looking like a bunch of tossers which is best exemplified by this piccie showing, I think it is fair to say, a seriously disinterested person.

This sort of thing is about as creative as a lounge pianist in a Blackpool resort [out of season] who plays Take That covers every night on a casio keyboard.  Pathetic …

Haha … no, not What If (I have a lot of good and bad opinions on them and their tree hugging ways) … it was a research company who say’s they are ‘reinventing research’. I suppose they are, they’re making it a bloody mockery. How are you?
