A Charlie Brown Ad Agency
Anyone who's ever worked in advertising will appreciate the industry references and accurate depiction of the struggles between creatives and account people in this spoof on 'A Charlie Brown Christmas'. But perhaps the most hilarious aspect of the entire video is watching the beloved characters dropping expletives and recounting drunken one night stands that make the cast of 'Mad Men' look like prudes. Like all Charlie Brown stories, there is an important lesson, and in this case, Linus gives us words to live by: "only by lying, cheating and stealing can you achieve true greatness." You just sold your soul to advertising, Charlie Brown.
