Hey Whipple, Roast This! GSD&M lets everyone say farewell to Sullivan

Hey Whipple, Roast This! GSD&M lets everyone say farewell to Sullivan thumbnail

Which advertising legend has had the biggest impact on your career? Clow? Goodby? Bogusky? Hagerty? Please, those guys may have inspired you, but what did they ever do to get your fledgling career off the ground? No, the correct answer is Luke Sullivan,  whose masterpiece Hey Whipple, Squeeze This is like the Bible, the Qu’ran, the Torah and Dianetics of advertising, all wrapped up into one.

Well after nearly eight decades of making ads, Luke has finally decided to start a new path as Chairman of the Advertising Department of Savannah College of Art & Design. Of course, he had to first quit his current job over at Austin’s  GSD&M, and it looks like they’ve had their fill of the guy anyway.

Introducing Whipple Roast, a site where ad people the world over can write, film, tweet and basically sound off on how much of a rip-off his book was, or any other bon mots you can think of to send Luke on his way.

Of course we at ihaveanidea have nothing but good things to say about Mr. Sullivan. He was our muse when we created the hit Burn Back song “Squeeze My Whipple”…

…so we will leave it to the rest of you to go to town on Mr. Sullivan
