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


Ego … Celebration … Pettiness … Another Typical Day In Adland

Yes it shows I am an ego-maniac … but I also find it sooooooooo amusing [and pretty cool] that a dodgy bloke from Nottingham can be be on the cover of Asia’s Ad Industry Mag – especially as I say ‘wank’ in the article.

My poor Mum doesn’t know whether to be proud or disgusted, but my boys at cynic are right, royally chuffed with me – proves we can make a difference to anyone … even the big, global ad agencies!

However, the greatest part about all this is that when a certain gentleman [who absolutely loathes me] sees it, he’ll probably start convulsing with rage … so with abit of luck I’ll have ruined his whole week – which is the least he deserves.

I remember Rupert Howell once saying, “Robert, you are a man driven by hate” and let me tell you, he was so right, hahaha!

It’s a story about how I/we won one of Asia’s biggest beer brands [for Y&R Brands] against quite alot of odds.

Hey, in the real world, it’s not like overcoming cancer or anything truly hard – but it still warms the cockles of my heart especially because the thinkings great, the insights are amazing [especially how we got them] and we went in with a no compromise view – even though it was opposite to what the client had guided us to do.

Lets hope they continue with the courage of their convictions because I know I will – that’s half my problem, hahaha!

Nice beer as well 🙂

So they say – you see the weird thing is I’m t-total which is weird given I look like an alcoholic, haha!

[I once got a job because the guy thought I’d been out all night smoking and drinking and assumed I was a ‘mover and shaker’ in the city.
He was quite upset when he knew I didn’t do either and had been in bed early the night before, ha!]

Comment by Rob

Haha! Strike one for the T-totallers.
Bet there arent many of them in the ad world…

Luckily I retain some ‘respect’ from colleagues as I’ve been arrested more times than them – even though it’s for pathetic things

Stealing a tiger?

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Too many to mention.

Well, I am from Nottingham, afterall!

Comment by Rob

But if that concept was always true then id be an ignorant thieving violent racist based on where I was born…

Still, at least you didnt shoot it. You are the new Siegfried or Roy I hear.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Where the hell were you born … Alcatraz?

Comment by Rob

Way to go Robert! Have you framed it up yet?

Comment by Mark

I haven’t – but my Mum probably has and no doubt given it to hundreds of people too, ha!
