So it’s goodbye to Paul Simons for the moment. The Diary is sure the old scoundrel will be back sooner or later.
For now we would like to point out the remarkable resemblance between Simons and Fast Show hero Swiss Tony (with, of course, the addition of a false moustache). The Diary also understands the similarity hasn’t gone unnoticed in adland. And to top it off, both share a love of cars.
We can just hear Simons now. “You see, working for an advertising agency is very much like making love to a beautiful woman. You come up with new ideas; try to be as creative as possible and hope somebody else doesn’t make a bigger impact than you.”
