Daryl Sommers? Working at Song Zu?
Russell Crowe? Oh no, he's from NZ originally isn't he.I give up.
Mike must be spewing.
My money's on Steve Back.
I heard Steve Back was gonna be the new CD oF JWT Melbourne. Just kidding, I dunno, Lachie???
Of course it's Steve Back. Hence the punny headline - a Lynchie speciality!But where, oh where, is he going?
Maddox? Hasn't Steve Back only been at Saatchi a few months?
Mike was on the ferry last week, he looked slightly green because there was a swell running, but he didn't spew. That being said, yeah it's gotta be Backy. The ex-Glue boys are heading home too as well I hear.
And ex- Saatchi Sydney duo, leaving NZ that is.
not that surprising that they're bailing from saatchi, not exactly a barrel of laughs there at the moment.
It's amazing he lasted so long in Dorkland. Welcome back to civilisation.What's the goss on Saatchis there?
Is it the Wanks...sorry.... the Yanks?
Where did Back once belong??
I hope it's Andy & Jay... Brilliant creatives. Great guys. Our country has been missing their contributions to print particularly. Come on boys, get home!
Come on home Degsy, we miss ya.
10:38 AM - Hi Andy, Jay. Good to know you're missing Oz!
So five senior creatives are leaving at once? What's going on there?
Bleckouts end cin't enderstund thi lukils.
Ahhh, Auckland. Inconceivably overpriced. Cold. Wet. Full of hoons. Badly laid out. Traffic-congested. Architecturally bland. Sunburn deadly. Yeah, I'd be coming back too.
Fuck off 1:55. At least we don't treat our indiginous people like garbage, have race riots on beaches, have the largest population of gay men, and the largest amount of gay advertsing too.
3:12 - Well put. The only aboriginies I saw in Sydney asked me for my spare change in Kings Cross.
Unfortunately male sheep come under bestiality rather than homosexuality. You tried to treat your indigenous people like shit but they kicked your ass.
The truth hurts eh 3.12 PM. Auckland ain't called Dorkland for nothing.
5:00 PM - I think we all know, New Zealand advertising has one thing Australian advertising does not have. Creativity. You don't even have to go any further than the top of this blog to proove my point.
I love it. This has rapidly descended into an Australia v New Zealand stoush. What say we meet somewhere half way with guns, knuckle dusters and knives (but no wit or spelling) and fight it out man to man?How's Tasmania 8.00pm, Friday?
3:12, I'd rather be a hoemless cunt begging for change in Sydney than a rich bastard in Auckland. I've lived in both cities and... um, actually only one is a city, right?
I agree,Auckland is a mind numbingly boring city to live in. And the girls (if that’s what you call them) are hideous.
They were girls???Man I thought the city was full of blokes.I think New Zealands creativity is much better than Australia's because there's NOTHING ELSE TO DO except come up with ad's.
As an Aucklander now working in Sydney, I agree that the latter is the better/sunnier/hipper city. Well except for the corrupt NSW liquor licensing laws that keep small bars out of a market dominated by the big pub chains, but yeah, no argument really. But when it comes to advertising creativity, Auckland must win. Sure, like Sydney a lot of the best work is led by ex-pat poms, but when it’s dark and cold and utter shite outside, you’re more likely to stay at your desk and push your ideas that bit further. Bit like the UK then.
