JCrgn Is Not Jeremy Craigen

The real Jeremy Craigen

A "Jcrgn" commented on my thread here about the new Guinness ad. Campaign printed it too. So I guess everyone assumed this was a comment from Jeremy Craigen, creative director at DDB.

It wasn't.

It was someone pretending to be him.

So, I'm happy to put the record straight. And am now worried that the bloke claiming to be Tony Kaye isn't who he says he is either...

About time. This brief is doing my head in and the big man has been pestering me about seeing some scamps.

I'm tired of the big man and forming a digital start-up, who's with me?

Christ, I thought it wasn't Jeremy. I mean how could anyone leave a positive comment about that load of old toss?

Anyway, my nipples are aching. Time for a frig and a line.

Tony Kaye... brilliant.

I was almost upset at Interesting 07 when Richard Wilson turned out to be the exec not Victor Meldrew.

I hate fakes. I hate fakery. Its one thing I absolutely want to get rid of in adland.

I notice you just enabled dictatorship mode on. Well done, Mr Chavez. Seriously, did that comment get you into that much trouble, Scampy? Well, the REAL Jeremy can't deny that Fake Jeremy did a very good job imitating his tone of voice.

Come on, Mr Craigen stop being so incestuous!

Yes, like some modern-day Mao, I have imposed a draconian regime of censorship here. And it's really fun! Any comments I don't like, I can simply make disappear. Not the people who wrote them though. But I'm working on that.

However, last anonymous, I do think you make a good and serious point. The fake Jeremy did do a good job of imitating his tone of voice. That's why I've had to put comment moderation on, at least for a time. Because while I think there's nothing wrong with fake names that are clearly comic, a serious attempt to put one's own words into someone else's mouth can't be right, can it?
