An Open Letter to ^KK, the Campbell Mithun Employee Who Graciously and Selflessly Monitored My Tweets
I had a lot of fun doing this and I learned a lot. If I could do the whole thing over again, I’d certainly do some of it differently. Mostly though, I hope I conveyed to you, dear ^KK, how passionate I am about advertising and how direly I want to be a Campbell Mithun “Lucky 13” copywriter.
I hope my tweets and related posts were interesting without being too repetitive. I tried to avoid famous quotes, life lessons, Mad Men references, triteness, pompousness, and words ending in -reative, -uccess, -ation, -ition (actually all of the -tions). Instead, I tried to weave aspects of my personality into elements of my physical self. I made a lot of negative statements, a couple of my posts were a little lengthy and, yeah, I wore an eye patch sometimes. Hopefully the whole thing wasn’t too obnoxious.
You should also know that I did a lot of reallybad writing while putting this together. Most of it ended up on the cutting room floor, though I can’t promise that all of it did. Also on “the floor” is other stuff that wasn’t that terrible—I just couldn’t make it work (a “Video Haiku-monial” starring my brother with so many cuss words bleeped out you can barely understand it is but one of those axed ideas).
Anyway, thanks so much for your time, ^KK, as I’m sure this whole process gives you and the other ^Initials a lot of extra work. I will miss your joyful commentary on my future tweets. I hope that some lucky day in the not-too-distant future we can meet, you know, face-to-face.
