If you don’t know who Gene Albamonte is, well now you know, as the NYC-based Possible Worldwide senior copywriter (who works on Dannon and Pringles among other accounts) has penned a new tome called Huckster: An Unnecessary Collection Of Essays On The Advertising Industry. Thebook, which was released a few weeks ago, offers Albamonte’s cynical/satirical take on the industry he and you call your own. According to the tipster who sent us this note about Huckster, which admittedly flew under our radar in recent weeks, “Advertising is particularly absurd when written about in an absurdist manner.” If you’re feeling up to it, you can purchase it through Amazon or just watch Albamonte channel his inner Jack Handey in the clip above.
