Sticking with Jim over at bNet, he has a post describing a rather bizarre situation over in Europe. Apparently, StrawberryFrog has published a 17-page dossier on a possible future employee titled “Sam Ismail will never work in advertising again if I have anything to say about it.” StrawberryFrog planning head, Heather LeFavre, put together the dossier after Ismail failed to show up for a job at the agencies Amsterdam office. It’s all a bit weird, particularly the reasons given for the no-show… Full disclosure here… I know Sam, I’ve got fucking drunk with him in London… He’s a nice guy. I was going to speak at a conference he was pulling together, then the economy shit hit the fan and it was cancelled. I assume through no fault of Sam’s. Heather contacted me for my opinion of Sam. As I pointed out, I had no bad experiences with him. But what the fuck do I know. The ad biz is full of crazy fuckers. I’ve proved that over the years. Anyway, I wish Sam well, and hope he’s OK.
Crazy... Who are you calling fucking crazy?
