So Chateau, Clarke, and I brainstormed for a while and then presented our work. Much to our delight, the lines were very well received. It was a nice break considering our less-than-stellar track record with the Mets and Ford.
ONE MINUTE later some of our lines were thrown into a presentation for the account people.
THIRTY MINUTES later we found out that one of our headlines was deemed a winner. We kept brainstorming.
ONE HOUR later we were told to stop because the campaign was cut.
Just like that. One minute you are solving the mysteries of human existence, the next you're staring at the gum stuck to the carpet wondering how it got so black.
This is the life of an advertiser. Back to the Mets.
After work my friend Tom took me to this Mexican place in Midtown called Dos Caminos. Plantain empanadas.
