The truth about ad sales

Someone has been busy on YouTube working up a humorous take on the world of ad sales and media agencies.

It's a pastiche (a rather close one) of another effort done a few years ago, the US made Truth in Advertising, which is better.

But that said the Truth About Ad Sales definitely raises a laugh or two and is definitely worth a look. The back stabbing, the bollocks and the bullshit is all there.

The scrubbing out of one clients name on a PowerPoint presentation and the adding of another is all spot on. As is the liberal sprinkling of buzz words. That's strategy for you.

...and if you haven't see the original, well take a look.
