Arnold again indulges in Christmas strippers

Arnold When it comes to being naughty or nice during the office holiday-party season, Havas’s Arnold for the second straight year goes for nasty. In 2006, staffers stripped in creative director Pete Favat’s Boston office. This year, Arnold’s New York outpost greased the poll, with Agency Spy reporting on burlesque antics involving thongs and pasties and speculating about female employees feeling “alienated” (no doubt) and their male counterparts feeling “guilty” (yeah, save that story for your wives). If Arnold’s advertising campaigns were as hot as its parties, it’d be smelting gold at Cannes, to use a really ridiculous metaphor. You know what AdFreak’s holiday party was like? Stale Doritos in the editor’s “ski chalet” (it’s really just his garage) with last year’s withered decorations hanging like so many stockings filled with coal. And the guests! That super-skinny model and the dude with half a jaw barely touched the jalapeño dip, and when the Little Lad dropped his pantaloons to show us his “berries and cream,” I knew it was time to go home.
