My Best Worst Idea Title.png

Stories of great ideas and the terrible things that followed.


We made this series of animated shorts for a special event I hosted during Advertising Week 2013. The show featured some of the industry's best creatives sharing a personal story about one of their great ideas that went horribly wrong.

The stories we collected were wonderful/awful right from the start—Jeff Goodby's cruise to hell, Kathy Hepinstall rides a horse into Wieden+Kennedy history; Pat Chiono comes thisclose to killing a client. (Not figuratively. Literally.) But somehow our animators at JW2 managed to make them even more awkward. 

Share your shame with the whole industry!

We're collecting more stories now for a second round of these. If you have a story, share it on the form below. You might end up with a cartoon version of your embarrassment following you on the Internet for years to come.
