Oi! Are you looking at my job ad?

Ever witnessed the hard face of marketing? No, not the tough pitch or the look on the marketing director’s face when the Advertising Standards Authority phones up with a fistful of complaints about the ad campaign you so lovingly created. What the Diary is talking about here is the badass, kick-you-in-the-teeth-as-soon-as-look-at-you marketers. Never heard of them? Neither had the Diary, until it was sent a release from German creative agency Jung von Matt.

The company ran this ad in a German newspaper, in its recent search for new creatives. As you can see from the state of these two, there was obviously a creative disagreement over what the ad should look like. The Diary feels that, rather than attracting Germany’s brightest brains, this pair of bruisers probably scared them off.
