New shit come to light...from marketing, tech, PLOP culture & life sprinkled with Lebowski dust straight out a Folger's tin.... from some poncy dude with a finger on his chin.
Oh Burger King, I'll have it your way.
Very nice perspective on life and love. "We love only by doing, and knowing."
I spent 5 of the best years of my agency life at one of the best ad agencies in the world, Abbott Mead Vickers/BBDO, very much indebted to this man, David Abbott, who the agency world lost this past weekend. I never knew the man, I wish I'd met him. He'd retired from the agency about 10 years before I'd joined. So I wished I'd actually delved more into his career.
So hunted around and found this delightful video of David talking about independent bookshops which gives a little inkling about the kind of human being he was and perhaps the type of humanity that influenced the culture at AMV that I (and so many others) have had the wonderful pleasure of being a part of.
Having worked with Crisis, the homeless charity, for about 11 years....this is probably one of the loveliest things I've seen recently. Woman finds a homeless man who writes...and changes his life. And it's so beautifully told.
