You are a junior, they’ve been there so they’re sharing with you. Laugh. Learn. Make your own mistakes and come back and tell me about them.
1- Your best/funniest junior moment.
ME, from Why Advertising Sucks? (http://adssuck.blogspot.com/)
The only thing I can remember is me leaving a film shoot early because I didn’t know that all creatives need to stay all the day/night in them. I just came in, looked around, found it cool and went home to watch tv. It was a saturday, who would have thought that I actually was needed all day there? I mean… working on a saturday? I was a very dumb copywriter. Now, the scary thing is – that is the only best memory I have.

Two VERY different things. Best, giving a presentation as an intern and being congratulated by a panel of clients. Giving a presentation without reading an index card and having people go “wait a minute, English is his second language?”.
Funniest? In retrospect when I did a headline including the name of the competition. Still feel like a jackass and it’s been almost 10 years.

Introducing myself as the Creative Director of the agency during a new client meeting I was asked to sit at. Everyone had a laugh… except the CD.

Working late one night, I was making out with a girl on the boss’ couch and the next morning, seeing him cleaning off the stains and he’s wondering where they came from. Hilarious!
Shane Strudwick, One awesome Creative Director
Being told since your idea was part of the pitch that you would have to present it. The worst part was feeling like ‘oh shit, maybe I’m not ready for this’ and the best part was a: not puking on anyone during the pitch and b: we won the account.
