The Periodic Table of Marketing Elements

Remember science class when you were a wee ad-kid? Did you ever learn the entire periodic table, or were you like me too busy dumping magnesium powder to a burning mixture of potassium chlorate and sucrose to make the pretty sparkly flash to care? Well, here's another periodic table you can not learn by heart, brought to you by the folks at kolbrenerusa.com. I bet they never threw copper chloride & magnesium on the burner just to see if you got blue sparklies. Tsssk.

Drama at Dentsu

Adweek reports this morning that Steve Biegel, the former creative director of the U.S. arm of Dentsu (Japan's largest advertising agency), sued the company Wednesday, saying he was pressured to visit a brothel and engage in other sexually explicit activities on company outings and then was fired after he complained in November of 2006.

In a lawsuit seeking unspecified damages filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, Steve Biegel said he and other company employees were put in awkward, sexually charged situations by Toyo Shigeta, the chief executive officer of Dentsu Holdings USA.

Dentsu provided this statement on the lawsuit: "Steve Biegel is a former employee who was terminated almost a year ago. When Dentsu refused to yield to Mr. Biegel's unreasonable demands, he made outrageous allegations which the company has refuted. He has now filed a claim to obtain money to which he is not entitled, for incidents he alleges took place over three years ago and which he never complained about while an employee of Dentsu. The company intends to counterclaim that Mr. Biegel has libeled Dentsu and defrauded the company. We look forward to the opportunity to vindicate our company in court."

Biegel said in the suit he was the executive responsible for developing television, radio, print and outdoor advertisements for many of Dentsu's most important clients when he was asked to go on a trip in June 2004 to the Czech Republic where a commercial was shot for Canon Inc.

Image of Get Smashed!: The Staggering Story of the Men Who Made the Adverts that Changed Our Lives

For those who are already pining for next season of Mad Men, why don't you dive head first into the golden years of UK advertising, the 60's, 70's and 80's. Back when men were alcoholics, women never climbed above the title of secretary, and all paychecks for creatives were insanely huge.
