Interns in diapers
A couple of creative babes did something uncomfortable, or ingenious, to land a job in advertising.
And while these two may look like actual big babies, we’re betting they didn’t hear the same complaint from anyone in the Havas offices last year.
Now a junior art director and a copywriter, respectively, at Leo Burnett, James Pacitto and Charlie Glassman landed their first gig at the former shop after dressing up in diapers, photographing themselves Anne Geddes-style, and delivering the incriminating evidence to agencies across the city via cardboard stork cutouts to announce the arrival of their new interns.
Some loved the creative cold-doorstep approach… Others did not, with one unnamed CD asking them to “pick [the stork mailers] up by 5:30 p.m. or they will be recycled.”
Yes it’s uncomfortable, it’s weird, but it worked (and they didn’t even have to throw a temper tantrum).
