Here’s a pretty funny speech from Jerry Seinfeld about advertising, delivered while getting an award from the ad industry.
He playfully shreds his audience saying, “I love advertising because I love lying.”
He continues, saying, “I think spending your life trying to dupe innocent people out of hard-won earnings to buy useless, low-quality, misrepresented items and services is an excellent use of your energy.”
And the crowd goes nuts.
It’s a little bit weird hear people in the ad business go wild, cheering on their own duplicity, but there it is. It’s all in fun, but still weird.
