Here’s What Jared Leto Had to Say to a Room Full of Tech and Advertising Leaders

Adweek recently gathered several creative and tech industry leaders at The Lot (home of Funny or Die) in West Hollywood for a frank discussion about the state of the ad business in the City of Angels. 

Actor, director and musician Jared Leto joined the roundtable conversation, and he summed up the panel's ideas in one powerful sentence: "When commercials stop being advertising, they can be art.”

In the video above, industry leaders who live and work in Los Angeles highlight why the city has emerged as the creative capital of the world. 

And, naturally—it is Hollywood—they gathered for a photo shoot afterward.
