Welcome to My World

Politicians and their assorted hangers-on may say and do the craziest things. But they've got nothing -- zip, zero, nada -- on ad hacks, as you can read on AdVerbatims.
Try these samples on for size:
"I have a degree in Art History, so I know all about this advertising stuff."
(Client, to Copywriter)
"I probably should have told you this in the beginning... I have a personal vendetta against standard serif typefaces. Can we redo the whole thing in Gill Sans?"
(Client, Administrative Director to Designer, hours before print run)
"What project? I didn't hear about that project. Oh, it was in my email. I don't read my email."
(Agency, Creative to Account Executive)
"We need your help. According to what I understood from the client, we have to put subtitles on the radio spots. Is that doable?"
(Agency, Account Assistant)
And there are many, many, many more.
