Shocker: ‘Hire Us or We’ll Marry’ Saga Ends without Actual Nuptials

Well, who didn’t see this coming? Nearly three months after creating a little buzz with their “Hire us so we don’t have to marry each other” ploy (did you get an invite?), Miami Ad School Brooklyn alums Alex Otis and Charli Hoffmann each wound up landing month-long freelance gigs at L.A.-based shop Mistress.

Now that their mission is complete, it appears that the pair has parted ways, with Otis now serving as a copywriter intern at Rosetta and Hoffmann back in Germany.
