Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you must have heard about the allegations that over the years, Bill Cosby drugged and raped at least 14 women. I’m not going to use AdScam to comment on that. However, from an ad agency point of view, I can tell you the guy is a complete fucktard. How so? Back in the nineties, I had a three year perma-lance gig going at Y&R, New York. They handled the Jell-O account, which had a long running campaign featuring Cosby telling stories to little kids. I knew people that worked on the account… Here’s what they told me Cosby demanded on every shoot. The kids had to have three wardrobe changes. He would select which one they wore so that they didn’t clash with his wanky sweaters. At the end of the shoot ALL three wardrobes would be boxed up and sent to his house. His dressing room had to have four boxes of Famous Amos Candy. A case of Perrier Water. Three bottles of Dom Perignon Champagne (He supposedly doesn’t drink)… And… Three boxes of Cohiba cigars. The first time this happened, the agency producer pointed out to Cosby’s manager, that ‘cos Cohibas are Cuban, they are illegal in the US. The manager gave the producer an address on a slip of paper and said… Go get them, which he did for a small King’s ransom. At the end of the day, all this stuff (which he hadn’t touched) was packed up with the kids clothes and delivered to Chateau Cosby… What a fucking douchenozzle!
The delivery for Mr. Cosby's dressing room has arrived!
