Except, of course, the actual AD and CW, you'll notice.

I'm seeing a pattern on here today. When did it become OK not to give the creative team the credit (or maybe in this case, the blame) they deserve?

I wonder how much Spike Lee got paid for directing those two magical three-second close-ups of p diddy.

It's so funny to read the responses of non-Americans here. What you may not realize is that this is an "advertisement". It does not reflect "real life". Americans hate many of today's most famous celebrities. The only people who like Sean "P. Diddy" Combs are people who think that they can gain something from him or his likeness. he's a brand just like Burger King is. Nobody likes Paris Hilton for who she is, but young impressionable teenage girls "like" her because she provides a polar extreme to balance societies perspective on their vacuous, shallow lifestyles. Guys "like" her because she seems to solidify their understanding that women are moronic objects desperate for their attention. Advertisers stuff these images down their customer's throats because it makes it really easy to advertise to them. The advertisers say "people listen to 'Diddy'" enough that everyone just assumes its alright to start doing it. It makes their jobs easier and makes them seem more "connected" with their consumers, even if they end up seeming unconnected form reality.

You can't stereotype a culture from their advertisements. If you did that, can you imagine what Japan would seem like? What England would seem like? What North Korea would seem like?

I think the answer is in the question.

Crispin Porter + Bogusky, you should be ASHAMED of yourself for producing such a load of SHIT! How does this compare to Whopper Freakout? Did someone else sign off this brief when all 3 partners were away on holiday?
