Now we meet an ad copywriter who works fast but does lousy work; it must be rewritten by other people. Yet he remains employed. He's not a good choice!
And why are we meeting these people? Because you should go with people who are good at their job, and Jerry Fairbanks is good at their job! Really, that was the reason for the two previous scenarios.
This probably didn't come as any news to people who were used to hiring others, and thought "maybe this time I'll choose the best candidate."
I just love the period image of the guy with the pipe. And that tie: a sharp time to be alive, it was.
