By the way if anyone here is in advertising or marketing...kill yourself. It's just a little thought; I'm just trying to plant seeds. Maybe one day they'll take root - I don't know. You try, you do what you can.

(Kill yourself.)


Seriously though, if you are, do.

Aaah, no really. There's no rationalization for what you do and you are Satan's little helpers. Okay - kill yourself.

Seriously. You are the ruiner of all things good.

Seriously.

No this is not a joke. You're [going], "There's going to be a joke coming." There's no farking joke coming. You are Satan's spawn filling the world with bile and garbage. You are farked and you are farking us. Kill yourself. It's the only way to save your farking soul. Kill yourself

Planting seeds.

I know all the marketing people are going, "He's doing a joke..." There's no joke here whatsoever. Suck a tail-pipe, farking hang yourself, borrow a gun from a Yank friend - I don't care how you do it. Rid the world of your evil farking machinations. (Machi...) Whatever, you know what I mean.

I know what all the marketing people are thinking right now too: "Oh, you know what Bill's doing? He's going for that anti-marketing dollar. That's a good market. He's very smart."

Oh man, I am not doing that, you farking, evil scumbags!

"Ooh, you know what Bill's doing now? He's going for the righteous indignation dollar. That's a big dollar. A lot of people are feeling that indignation. We've done research - huge market. He's doing a good thing."

Godammit, I'm not doing that, you scum-bags! Quit putting a goddamn dollar sign on every farking thing on this planet.

"Ooh, the anger dollar. Huge. Huge in times of recession. Giant market. Bill's very bright to do that."

God, I'm just caught in a farking web.

"Ooh, the trapped dollar, big dollar, huge dollar. Good market - look at our research. We see that many people feel trapped. If we play to that and then separate them into the trapped dollar..."

How do you live like that? And I bet you sleep like farking babies at night, don't you?

Oh boo hoo.
You sit at a desk and think up weird things.  Nothing you do actually *has* to work.  Even if only 1 out of 10 things you do works (and that's if you can even measure it), you're a success.

Yeah, coming up with your 15th listicle of the week is soul-sucking, but you work 9-5 in a climate-controlled room and have no risk of job-related injury other than carpal tunnel.

Ok. That makes me feel better about turning down jobs at ad agencies and p.r. firms - even though those are perceived as "sexier" jobs than some others. What I know though is that every industry needs marketing (persuasion) and communications professionals. Find a good industry, find a good salary.

Sweatshops exist in many industries.

In the end, it's not what you get paid overall.
but what you get paid for how much output.

If you're putting in extra-hours, off-hours, sweat and insanity
It may not be worth the total pay and benefits.

Everything counts
