Seinfeld Drops A Truth Bomb: “I love advertising because I love lying”
While Jerry Seinfeld accepted an honorary CLIO Award at a ceremony in New York City, this is how he began his speech: “I love advertising because I love lying” only to continue his rant with even more poignant statements about materialism. All of this while he was standing in front of a room full of people working in the advertisement industry! Even though he received the award because he himself worked in the ad business as a longtime spokesman for American Express, he definitely seems quite critical towards the industry.
Hopefully, this message will drive people to question what’s the point of selling garbage for a living.
