As I pointed out in a post last week, one of the reasons for the recent layoffs at W+K was because Coke had extended their payment period out to 120 days. W+K, in its independent douchenozzelry, laid off 60 staffers, instead of telling Coke to fuck off – Yeah, easy for me to say, but at least W+K isn’t answerable to a BDHC… But, money is fucking money… Especially when you need a new yacht. Meanwhile, over at AdAge, Ken Robinson has some advice on what to do about this situation. Basically, it is that agencies who are not prepared to act as their client’s bank should stop doing it. Ha, good fucking luck with that. As I have pointed out in my last couple of books… The vast majority of BDA’s, and their BDHC’s, will offer their wives into prostitution, sell their kids into slavery and bend over and take it in the arse for a Coke sized account… And. Oh… How does six months payments sound to you, Mr. Big Time Account?
For fucks sake... Repeat after me, you little arsehole... Money, money, money!
