You yearn for the '60s and the Creative Revolution. You want to go back to the '80s and all those yachts, prostitutes and cocaine. Hell, you'd even settle for the 2000s, before Yahoo plastered its name on the Gutter Bar.

True, working in advertising isn't like it used to be. But in the videos below, created by VCU BrandCenter students for the AICP Awards, top creatives Gerry Graf, Tiffany Rolfe and Ted Royer reveal that there is a silver lining.

Could we at least ditch the open plan and go back to offices, though?
