Wieden’s ad students out to fix America

Say what you will about the students in Wieden + Kennedy’s W+K 12 in-house ad school, but they’ve got some great facial hair. This video shows W+K 12 director Jelly Helm and his protégés at the Portland ad agency working on a project called “America. Love it or fix it” for Good magazine. One of the hairy students, with the great advertising name of Scrappers Morrison, says of the program: “I don’t know if we’re making ads, or if we’re doing art school, or, like, part of some reality show without any cameras hidden anywhere.” What he does know is that he enjoys wearing a stuffed raccoon as a scarf.
