Creative Director Wanted

Rubber Republic, a London-based viral ad agency, are hiring a CD for their Bristol office.

They're the people that made this tongue-in-cheek campaign to promote the creative industries in the South West:

Yawn... got the 'joke' ten seconds in. Maybe they're short of editors down there.

2.57 maybe your attention span only lasts ten seconds. we all got the gag straight away, but it was nicely done and worth the 4 mins...

i'm a somerset bumpkin,

nice to see something promoting creativity this way.

Like the film, but I wish they had spent a bit more time scripting it properly, so they didn't have to edit so badly.

Hence the need for a new CD...

With this comment moderation thing going on the comments section of this blog seem to have turned into saccharin-infused mediocrity. I mean, I was not fan of the 70 strong comment wall full of backbiting and random insults, but surely there is a middle-ground between that and this?

They're going to need a wodge of cash to tempt any CD out of London and what kind of ad company has that kind of scratch lying around at the moment? I don't know one agency that hasn't let someone go in the current climate. Good luck to them, but if they were as good as their website claims they are surely I'd have heard of them before now.

WCRS booming, and even hiring.

Enjoyed it - did think it was a bit long, but creative thinking. Very funny.
Rubber Republic have been doing some smart recruitment and outreach stuff generally. Enjoyed their viral "Cluetrain Manifesto" a lot.

Simon - glad you liked it too-- someone at Rubber Republic had sent it on to me and while I rarely follow up on press releases, the name of the agency alone was reason to watch.

Agree with Guy (of Guy and Sarah) that the lead actor casting was nicely done.

And since I'm an American, I'm guessing there's more than a couple of Brit-centric details/jokes that I missed.

An actually good job ad by a creative company, which is something of a rarity these days.
