Thousands of votes have been cast and now, it’s time to announce the winner of our 2009 Sexiest Man In Advertising. We thank of all our contestants Mike Fetrow, Scott Witt,Derek Lo, David Bryant, Dana Satterwhite, Steve Red, Christian Jackson, Fernando Sosa, Mike Sukle and Raafi Rivero.
However, the big winner is…. Derek Lo of Anomaly. Congratulations! Here’s what Derek had to say:
“Thanks to everybody who cast their ballot in favor of the only dude with a picture in full color (props to my boy Derek Goode for the great headshot). I’d like to make a special shoutout to the billions of Chinese ladies who voted in one of the greatest come from behind wins in the history of sexy ad man contests. I couldn’t have done it without them. Thanks to my family who all made fun of me. A big gracias to all of my loyal friends who voted and got their friends to vote.
And last but not least, I’d like to extend a huge thanks to you “the people”, because you wanted a change in advertising sexiness. No longer will the pretty boys rule Madiness Avenue with their Paul Smith blazers and Diesel denim. This proves that raw street and original gangsta can be sexy too. This represents so much more than me being ridiculously good looking. It symbolizes that with a little bit of heart and a lot of friends, you can win any contest you put your mind to. 2009 is a new year. So as the wise Lil Wayne once said, “I got summer hatin on me cause I’m hotter than the sun.”
Boy. I’m so glad this dude won. That whole sentence about pretty boys? Love it. It’s so rah-rah the proletariat and you know I love that shit.
