Goodbye Otis Inheritance …

Last year, when I joined R/GA, I wasted my sons inheritance by having an array of stickers made for the team.

Of course I did it under the guise of expressing our planning philosophy and approach, but really it was so they could cover their laptops in them like the vandals I wanted us to become.

Or something.

To be honest, even as tools towards hooliganism, they were still better than the stickers and badges I have had made previously. Even the one’s I did to say goodbye to America.

Well a year has passed and I’m still here [fools] so I thought I’d waste a bit more of Otis’ inheritance by having some old-school tech made for them.

That’s them at the top of this page.

To be honest, I’m still trying to work out the reason for them but I think it has a lot to do with basically being cheap as chips [go on, say it, “like me”] … so cheap in fact, that I had some made for a Mike and Sam – a wonderful creative team here – who have the misfortune of sitting opposite me.

And they say I don’t know how to win friends and influence people.

Oh Robert.

Comment by Lee Hill

No wifi? Not even bluetooth?
Who are you and what have you done with Robert?

Comment by George

What do you mean “what have you done with Rob?” This is classic Campbell. He never spends money on things for others that may have some technology element to them. He only spends his money on things for others that are (1) basic and (2) humiliating. This is Rob on brand.

He probably expensed them too.

Comment by Bazza

Thank you for helping me see the light again Baz. Agree, classic Robert. The only surprise is he didn’t create an additional set of mischievously personalised pencils for his clients.

I am disappointed in your basic understanding of me George.

Remember …

Tech and gadgets for me.

Humiliating rubbish for everyone else.

Hope that helps.

Looks like Rob got extra cheap pencils by choosing the DIY sharpener option.

Comment by Bazza

Giving someone a random present that also acts as an insult has taken passive aggressive to an exciting new dimension. If anyone was going to take it there, it was always going to be you Rob.

Rob’s version of halloween is being nice to someone without any asshole sarcasm.
