Creepy office dude wants you to get lucky

Ctlottery Every office has a creepy guy who lurks behind potted plants, hides inside the copy machine and makes stealthy visits to co-workers’ desks. At AdFreak, I’m that guy. Kidding, HR, I’m kidding. Anyway, a new Connecticut Lottery spot from Cashman & Katz dubs such a character the “Secret Scratch Game Man.” He leaves lottery tickets as holiday gifts for everyone, except ... spoiler ahead ... the boss! There’s a most unfortunate update of the Johnny Rivers ’60s classic “Secret Agent Man” with new lyrics: “He’s the man who skipped his morning meetings/Mission: to deliver season’s greetings.” Bob Dylan apparently still wasn’t available to chip in a few lines. And that guy on AdFreak’s after-hours surveillance video, who looks just like me, and is wearing my shirt and jacket, putting his feet up on the boss’s desk and rifling through his drawers ... that’s one of our other Daves. Probably Griner.
