Does Anyone Still Work at VB&P?

While agencies are still going through layoffs, the folks at Venables Bell & Partners seem to have tons of free time to make dreck like this video. From the bullshit storyline, it sounds like Venables is looking to rebrand? Huh? Ya, I still don’t know who they are, and Biggie Smalls might be rolling over in his grave after this clip that looks like a ripoff of the late rapper’s “Hypnotize” video. Wait, is this a plug for a new Jersey Shore, based in San Fran? Because that’s what it looks like. I’d love to see how much of the company budget they blew on this piece of crap. And monogrammed hats…REALLY VB & P DOUCHES? REALLY??

Update: Like our commenters say, sources tell us that individual employees got together, wrote and produced the video without VB&P management knowing about the video or its content. They entered it in a talent show and won. From what we hear, the VB&P brand has nothing to do with this.  Here’s a link for reference.
