Letting Rock Stars Get A Taste Of Reality …

As you know, I have a side gig where I basically get paid to be shouted at by members of a famous heavy metal band.

Well, strictly speaking, it’s one member … along with their management team, Q-Prime.

In all seriousness, they have been nothing but supportive, even when they absolutely detest what I’ve done for them but recently I received a text that may just be the best text I’ll ever get.

Even better than the one I got from Richard Summers at Wieden, who I had sent to visit China’s 6 fastest growing cities, who messaged me to say it was so cold, he had to steal toilet paper from the youth hostels – I had insisted he stay at – to keep himself warm.

Here it is.

Just helping you to keep it real boys.

Ahem.

Happy leap year weekend everyone … to make it sweeter, know there’s no blog posts until Wednesday as I have to nip off to the US.

America’s loss is your gain.

I now appreciate you for being an equal opportunity prick to all.

Remember when he gave Richard Branson a cold vanilla coffee as a birthday present? This is nothing compared to that.

Comment by George

Trying to but still can’t.

Comment by Bazza

Hahahahaha, Jill was talking about that recently. It was meant as a gesture of birthday kindness (after all, what do you buy a billionaire as a present?) but it ended up looking like the act of a lunatic.

It is in the vaults under the section entitled, Campbell folklore.

Still keeping people on their toes I see.

Comment by George

Where in the US?
Is there a reason you didn’t tell me before?

Comment by George

Finally doing something nice?

Comment by Billy Whizz

You’re safe. The trip has been cancelled due to corona virus. I’m glad the US is finally starting to take it seriously because just yesterday I got an email that showed a level of ignorance that was breathtaking.

Not only do you not have to see me (and I only didn’t mention it because it was an in-and-out trip), I’ll maintain the zero posts for Monday and Tuesday. Consider it an early Christmas present and it no way has anything to do with me being too lazy to wrote something.

But you will now have time to find some more fake ads.

Comment by John

More like you didn’t mention it to hear everyone make quick excuses of why they couldn’t catch up. Glad the corona virus scare worked. Only joking Rob.

What the fuck is going on with your wallpaper?

Comment by Billy Whizz

Do you want it for your phone?

I’ll tell Jill, she made that and I’m sure she will be so happy you want it too.

Comment by Rob

I would rather have corona virus.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Well the way Trump is dealing with it, you just might get it.

Comment by Rob

they only hired you because they think youre fucking satan.

Comment by andy@cynic

That explains everything.

They also were right in their assumption.

Comment by DH

Still alive?

Sadly, we’re all out of blog sanitizer.
