Brilliant!

I soooo understand the look on that guy's face. I'm sure I've had that look in many meetings.

Frighteningly accurate.

just spit the coffee on my screen. Thanks so much for sharing.

Hence the value of autocracy.
It's no accident that Apple's design department knows exactly what it is doing, and creates things with style.

Hey how they know my company?? :D

I laughed a lot watching that :)

A perfect example of why not to say yes to all client's comments and suggestions when working on an advertising project, learn to say things like: "As an advertising company we don´t recommend this"; "Our experience on previous similar cases tells us that it is
absolutely not convenient to do this or that" or "Let us present our initial draft first, and then we will listen to your comments and observations"

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
