So this may or may not be unprecedented on AgencySpy to sport dueling comments of the day. But as we bleed into the 16th, this spot for MS 7 caused a little furor and resulted in this stellar retort where someone we guess outed themselves as a Crispin staffer (ID’d as Mattim) and defended the new Windows 7 spot. It began as nicely as this:
“Love it. C’mon all you haters, lighten up. It’s an ad for an operating system. And it’s hilarious, informative and adorable.”
And as tension mounted, escalated into this:
“Dear Pinky and Dumb Ass,
It was just my opinion. But since you are so insanely talented, please come to CP+B and share your brilliance with all of us. Talk to Wendy our recruiter, get a job, march into Rob and Andrew’s office and tell them how to make better ads. Please, we are all waiting for your glory. I should have known better than to comment on Agency Spy and get mixed up with loser creatives whose lack of talent lead them to a website where they bitch at those of us actually producing work. I hope someday you get to work on a high profile account at a top tier agency. Really, I do.”
This is late-night television folks, just deal with it. You can read the whole thread here.
