Is Your Agency Wank?

Let’s face it, sometimes ad agencies are like the cobbler’s son who has no shoes. Web agencies have unusable websites. And agencies devoted to building brands do a terrible job at their own brands.

That holds true for copy, too. Many agencies churn out laughable, pretentious claims about what they do and how they do it. It’s enough to lead you to believe agency folks aren’t the most self-aware of people. Now, there’s a place for you to join in on the fun. The Agency Wank Tumblr is devoted to celebrating great moment’s in agency self-regard. Depending on your point of view, it makes for either depressing or hilarious reading. Here are two favorites. Submit your own to the Agency Wank Twitter account, @agencywank1. (@agencywank was taken? Of course it is.)
