A cycle boutique, a bar that screens movies...really?? How low can Singapore sink? This is what NY Fest used to be like.

You forgot private storage and art pencils. Two huge Ogilvy advertisers yeah. Wonder what department handles those. I don't recal the job numbers during wip!

You suck said:

So you work there We suck? Wow, loyal much? Or perhaps you're just pissed off & have a wee tanty coz you're still making everyone coffee while the talented people get to create ads? Poor you.
Still, if you work there, I guess you could always check the job numbers with Steve Back. I dare say he'd be happy to oblige anyone who has the courtesy to question his integrity to his face.

Yes, I work here. But not on your creative floor. Our ecd just knows that he has to win in Cannes at any cost. I think we entered near 200 entries and only got 2 bronze lions what. My loyalty is to me I admit but want Ogilvy to win for our big clients like Shanghai Coke Grand Prix.Sorry, but it is true. Good luck with the last days of the the festival. I really hope OM score more than two bronze medals after all the pressure here the last four months leh.
