The boys at LOLFed stumbled upon an interesting party invitation that goes by the title: Ladies, They Still Make So Much More Than the Guys in Advertising.
You know Wall Street’s in trouble when the models that date only investment bankers go slumming with advertising types. Sure, the entire country is disgusted with the scandal and distraught over the financial crisis, but models aren’t known for being on top of current events. So, when models manage to lift up their heads from their previously coke-covered mirrors and become conscious of the anti-Wall Street zeitgeist, you know Hell is close to freezing over. I’m mean really; if one industry is hurting worse than Wall Street it’s got to be advertising. Now when models start dating journalists, that’s when you’ll find Lucifer looking for a ski jacket.
The invite is hysterical, if it’s tongue in cheek. If it’s not, well, typical.
“Life may be tough, and your industry might be crumbling, but what you need to realize is that the implications of this crisis for the rest of New York society are even more intense. You Bankers are the core of our ecosystem, the top of the food chain. And when there are less lions hunting, the natural balance is destroyed and next thing you know advertising guys are picking up tens at 1Oak buying drinks from the bar. Pathetic. Without you, there’s chaos, and hot women don’t know where to turn. In the next year there will be too many hot girls that were supposed to marry bankers making the life-long decision to settle with consultants, accountants, and lawyers? Its unnatural and unfair.”
LOLFed puts it in perspective: “FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, MODELS ARE STARTING TO SLEEP WITH AD GUYS INSTEAD OF MANAGING DIRECTORS! WE MUST PUT THIS TO A STOP!”
FT Alphaville goes after the real news; how much these guys still make. The $300,000 salaries don’t shock me as much as the guys making less than $50,000. That’s just depressing. The party is Thursday night, Jan. 22, so check it out.
