Who Will Hire This Naked Copywriter Obsessed With Burt Reynolds and Vladimir Putin?

Lawson Clarke lets it all hang out as he returns to freelance life

You may recall this 2009 AdFreak story about freelance copywriter Lawson Clarke's efforts at self-promotion, which involved crafting the uber-masculine persona known as Male Copywriter and exquisitely re-creating the famous April 1972 centerfold of Cosmopolitan magazine starring a naked Burt Reynolds.

Well, after holding down some full-time agency jobs, including one at Hill Holliday, Clarke is jumping back into the freelance life. And so, he's launching Male Copywriter 2.0—a reskinning (so to speak) of his portfolio site that includes a whole new video of himself in various states of undress.

Check out the video here: 

Clarke—whom we first wrote about way back in 2004, when he happened to be the very first Straight Guy in Bravo's pilot episode of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy—is obviously keeping the Burt Reynolds thing going as a branding device.
