Today as I woke up from seeing my old housemates randomly in LA, I noticed former Crispin, Porter and Bogusky partner (Co-Founder), well… Alex Bogusky, tweeted about selling his old truck. Its an old 1968 Ford F100 truck, considering my family has the 1958 version, sounds like a good deal. The truck itself has not been ‘molested’ by Bogusky, as he points out, although that is apparently a common term in the car world. So what if I bought the truck. Yah me. What if I want to meet Alex, gain his eternal wisdom all at the age of 22. I’m an advertising student, I love cars and hell, I love wisdom.
Maybe instead of paying for the vehicle, I could work off my debt to him by doing social media or intern work for his new projects? By just having a Bogusky truck wouldn’t that make my 2010 Accord way less cool, so it sounds like I have to do it. Why not? The Rosetta Stone to my career could lie within the doors of that white pick-up truck. With all the trouble I’ve had on Craigslist (hints my previous posts) its also just reassuring to know if I did want the truck the seller isn’t a creep. Or would rob me. Or beat me up. Or just tug me around.
Now that I’ve written this blog post from my iPhone, in a car, on Sunset Blvd, in Los Angeles. Most likely I’ll tweet this too. Didn’t I already go the extra mile compared to just tweeting him that he’s my hero in the first place. Oh well. It was fun writing this.
