Mad Man Dick In Today’s Ad World

Canadian advertising agency Zulu Alpha Kilo has produced at “A Madman at Zulu”, a risque film designed to be screened at the Strategy Online Agency of the Year event in Toronto. The film takes a humorous look at how a 1960s ad man would adjust to life in today’s ad world. Viewer warning: some nudity, swearing, and off-colour humour. Dick, before his first day finishes, is confronted about his behaviour and let go. As if he didn’t get the hint, Dick then turns up at the Agency of the Year event to accept Zulu Alpha Kilo’s silver award.
