Every year, one-third of ad-agency workers in the US move to new jobs, according to research by Deutsch in Los Angeles. I'm sure its the same shit here in sunny SA. So how can we solve this shituation? How can we better the lives of the creatives, producers and even client circus people so we can just get on with the work and leave the bitching behind? Apparently Deutsch LA has some ideas... and will present them at a forum at the Cannes International Advertising Festival / Gutter Bar Piss Up next week. If you're lucky enough to be slumming it in the South of France while the rest of us keep the lights on back home (see what I did there?), I suggest attending.

Taking inspiration from Coke's hug vending machine no doubt, the Salta Beer Company in Argentina together with Ogilvy Buenos Aires have developed what they're calling Rugbeer - a vending machine that dispenses free beer the harder its tackled. It even has a, ahem, "pussy meter" so you know how hard you have to smash into it to get your free beer. Just what the world needs, more alcohol fueled violence. Maybe the company should change its name from Salta to Assaulta. Hmm...
