It’s a funny old business

London adland chronicler Scamp witnessed a startling example of just how bizarre advertising can get at his agency the other day.

Seems a senior client had had just about enough during an agency meeting so he stepped out and rang the agency chairman to say, "I want this guy off my business. Today."

The chairman had his PA pull the account director out of the meeting and sacked him on the spot. He was marched out of the agency around ten minutes later.

I know The Trump always says it business not personal, but still.
