Isn’t Toilet Boy just playing to stereotype?
We’d hate to defend Toilet Boy, that maladjusted clogger of drains at TBWA\Chiat\Day, but isn’t he simply adhering to the agency’s philosophy, even if he’s taken things a bit too far? Have a look at this funny old sign hung on the outside of the TBWA\C\D building in L.A. The agency doesn’t seem too bothered to be filled with “anarchists, schmoozers, dictators, grandstanders, purists, malcontents, philosophers, lollygaggers, visionaries, cheerleaders,” etc. Toilet Boy is certainly a malcontent, and he may be an anarchist. Plus a lollygagger, if he’s spending that much time in the bathroom. The sign doesn’t mention toilet cloggers, but metaphorically, it sort of fits right in.
