Agency to Prospective Clients: Call Us or We'll Send a Drunken Zombie After You An offer they can't refuse?

This self-promotional clip from The Ungar Group, a boutique agency in Chicago, shows what might happen if you crossed Mad Men with The Walking Dead. You'd get a dapper, cigar-smoking, brandy-sipping, scab-faced ghoul who warns, "If you're looking for an advertising agency and don't meet with The Ungar Group, you'll regret it for the rest of your lives." Major props for infusing the initial pitch with a threatening tone and aura of hopelessness and decay. Such elements usually take at least a week to permeate agency-client relationships. Actually, lots of ad guys look like the withered zombie in this video. Pitching new business sucks the life right out of them.
