VB&P Celebrates 10 Years with Awkward Yearbook Pics

Actually, when aren’t yearbook photos awkward? Anyhow, San Francisco agency Venables, Bell & Partners has found its own way to celebrate 10 years of existence by creating what it’s calling a “Facebook flashback,” whereby VB&P builds profiles (and Facebook profiles) for each of its employees based on photos taken when they were 10 years old. Ahh yes, going to the Ten Year site brings back our own memories of all those goofy, forced yearbook smiles we made through middle school and high school, the bad hairstyles and our never-ending quest to get everyone in our class to sign our books and wish us a “radical” summer…or something like that.

You can click on any one of the pics on the Ten Year page, read profiles and vote for things like “Best Hair,” “Most Likely to Hit on a Teacher” and “Most Likely Not to Get Carded for Beer.” Yep, feels just like our school daze.
