AdScamer Josh, has very cleverly dug up a 2009 “Wharton Leadership & Change” interview with new McCann Uber-Fuhrer, Harris Diamond. It’s chock full of priceless gems such as “Shoot the frowners.” Others include such blindingly insightful ones as… “Negative perceptions can trump positive messages, cultural differences should not be ignored, and change -- even destructive change -- can be good.” Yes in-fucking-deed. Harris, I can see nothing but success for McCann from now on. The interview also points out that while he was running Weber Shandwick, the PR company advised the milk industry on its "got milk?" campaign. So there you have it… Obviously Goodby Silverstein + Partners stole the campaign from a wanky PR company. Better pack up all those Gold Lions, Jeff, and send them over to McCann. Oh, it also points out that Harris’s first job was at at Prudential Insurance… That’s right, fucking Prudential insurance. Obviously that’s where he met Michael Roth… Wheels within fucking wheels… Right? Fuck the Drudge Report, get your real muck here!
Us insurance chaps must stick together!
