Sure it’s not the greatest ad in the World, but I do like the sentiment of the idea … a letter is written with emotion whereas an email is written with efficiency.

Hmmn, so I wonder what that makes the post below written by?  Have a wild guess … ha.

i’d like to see the next frame of that shot – where she’s covered in white body paint and his writing’s all crumpled and smudged up (and more like the letters you actually end up getting delivered from Aust Post)

With that level of cynicism, you should be working for us!

What would this ad look like if was one of those emails where you mistakingly press reply instead of forward?

Eh?

A client sent an email with a really stupid request, I forwarded it to a the creatives with the comment, “Silly cow”.
..except I didn’t forward it, I’d replied by mistake

You are Andy’s hero. Oh go on then, you’re mine as well. And what the hell happened then? God, this is more exciting than the cliffhanger of Dallas … but not quite as exciting as the Sausage competition.

Wow… this could be interesting…

This is absolute gospel:
She phoned the account director and said she’d forwarded the email to the marketing director… and was going straight to see him to demand I be either fired or we lose the account.
She did.
Problem was he agreed with me.
He fired her that day – he just hadn’t got around to it yet, but this was the perfect excuse. He also bought me a bottle of Laphroig fir my barefaced cheek.
I did get a written warning – but in the end it was worth it.
And the moral of the story? Free tennis lessons can save your career. Thanks to me, he finally beat his best mate in three hard fought sets.

This isn’t in my CV…

Genius, and I love the twist at the end with the initially obscure tennis reference…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Brilliant. Honestly brilliant.

Comment by Marcus Brown

That is absolutely brilliant … dynamite story with an astounding ending. I am proud of you, Leeds and your client with the sacking capabilities!

Comment by Rob

I’ll tell you my five a side story with Northern Rock another time…

And there I was thinking only I had been visited by the [Potential] Fuck-Up Fairy!
