Art Director: Come on, we must have something?

Copywriter: I’m drawing a blank and the deadline’s almost here.

Art Director: Seriously? This is BMW. Such an iconic brand. Let’s think back to all those brilliant ads from the ’90s for some inspiration.

Copywriter: Er…I think I’m losing it…or maybe I never had it. I’m such a hack! We should start looking for new jobs. How much do you think being an Uber driver actually pays?

Copywriter: Brilliant! Pub?

Art Director: Pub.
