What happened to the advertising industry?

I asked myself this morning what happened to the icons of the advertising industry?

My liver is happy to report that 3 Martini lunches were before my time.

When I started in advertising, this bloke might have been around. From my experience, those 'advertising types' didn't really work that much. While we were slaving away, they hung out at the 'advertiser type' bars all night.

That was replaced with black for everything: Black designer glasses, black suits, black shirts. We just wanted to look serious and not like "advertiser types".

And that's the current state: If you're in advertising, you need to have a moleskin. Moleskins are the new black.
