As continuing proof that you can’t make crazier shit up about Draft/FCB than actually happens there… This just in from my Chicago “Deep Throat” – As has been previously documented, Draft/FCB, ECD, Todd Tilford has alienated just about every creative in the building by turning any ideas he likes over to the freelance Second City crew, who then work them up for dumpster loads of cash… Not that this in any way stems the non-stop hemorrhaging of all their accounts. Now in his wisdom, Tilford has started a secret group of by invitation only, inner-circle creatives known as “The Adventure Team”. Yeah… The Fucking Adventure Team!!! He recently held a secret meeting with a handful of these poor fuckers and actually uttered the phrase “The first rule of Adventure Team is you do not talk about Adventure Team.” He followed this with… “No one is answering our phone calls anymore. (No shit!) I need you all to think creatively about Pro Bono or fun accounts we can get so we can start attaching ourselves to the kind of work to get people to start answering our phone calls again.” And here’s the absolutely, jaw-dropping best bit… To make it all very clandestine, he gave every Adventure Team member their very own medallion to identify themselves as members of the secret society. He actually had a designer make up these desirable secret symbols for him and the team. Yes indeed... Like I said… When it comes to the craziness of Draft/FCB… You can’t make shit up that comes close to beating reality!
What wouldn't you do to get your hands on one of those fuckers? Looks like it came out of a Cracker Jack box!
