Marty Weiss’s Search for Friends Continues

A week after he initially began his experiment, ad man Marty Weiss‘s search for friends in New York City soldiers forth, only this time with a little less success. Weiss’s man-on-the-street project, where he simply asks, “would you be my friend?” to total strangers, is essentially a self-promotional effort for his newly rebranded agency called, yes, Marty Weiss & Friends, which works with the likes of Grand Central and Sobieski vodka. If you stick around until the end, you’ll see Weiss, who seems like a friendly enough character though NYC passersby aren’t really having it, eventually catch up with a rather familiar name from the ad world. During his 25-year ad career, Weiss worked at the likes of TBWA\Chiat\Day and served as creative director/founding partner of another New York-based agency called Weiss Whitten Stagliano for well over a decade. You can check out his YouTube page here.
