If you could hire a dead ad guy…


Dr. Frankenstein comes over one day and tells you he will revive any one ad god of your choice so you can hire him as a freelance consultant. Who do you pick? Is it Bernbach? David? Chiat? Leo?

intro If you could hire a dead ad guy...If I really had to spend time with a dead guy I guess I’d have to say Bernbach would be at the top of the list. He redefined advertising, put it on its head. He was behind so much work that you could run today, decades later, that would clean up in the shows with its simplicity, insight, intelligence and humour. Even today’s high profile VW work still can’t hold a candle to the original work. (Janet will have to give her own answer, as we are individuals, contrary to rumours.)
