id be good at it. can i be team leader?
Hope the guy that came up with that name got a promotion.
So motherfucking smooth.
1 shot every time a team leader says -Guys, I've made a decision!-
Every time Nick pulls THAT face.
Every time someone says LADS
to go tonight. Disgusting creature
what an awful bunch of pricks
Nick remains a slimy shitfuck.
Some people will be offended by the lads mag idea, and most free mags like that are picked up by commuters - how many OAP commuters are there?
like a midget vader
'My principle magazine is The Economist'
'mm, would you like crosswords to keep your brain active?'
have never come across the old before
I'm sensing a pattern here...
i swear i'll scream. and then post something about it here.
He has a hell of a lot to frown about.
shitting hell. what do they think old people are like?
I disagree but y'know, whatever, I'll do it.
YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN THIS. THIS IS AWFUL.
Touching on the satirical thing the oldies mentioned, as well as focusing on the fun to be had at old age, instead of the stereotypical old person with crosswords and shit, again as mentioned by the oldies.
Jim will prevail, if we believe.
Also, Zoe might be on the money here. If he listens, which it looks like he will.
I think Jim's ship might have just sunk.
is that it was focussed
these people ARE NOT REAL
looking like it will crash and burn painfully.
It's like they've never had contact with other human beings before, like they were created in a shit business lab. 'Old people? WHat are they? Like nearly dead people right?' 'Lads what are they? They like tits and surfing right?'
as terrible as it is.
high end advertisers may prefer it
As in hip-hop.
As in young and funky.
-Y'know... this new hippety hop and rat music... that all the young people are listening to these days. #strangeeightiestypemoment
I think I might like 'Hip Replacement' as a title.
Shitty cover treatment though.
Makes it harder to chose a side.
thats just pretty much shortlist magazine
is a bumbling fool
like a little clark kent
lads magazine pitcher woman says 'YEH?' after every sentence is the most obnoxious thing I've ever heard
How about......AmbiApps. I just came up with that, just now yeah?
the missus just said he had 'good posture'. HE HAS EVERYTHING.
her face is an absolute dream
as well as the missus, no doubt
Tap Dat Ass
unless he manages to bring susan to tears in the boardroom (probably quite easy).
..not a word. These people ARE NOT REAL
Fucking teacher's pet
All you need is two large commercial vehicles at your disposal, a team of 6 willing mates and a warehouse.
And now I'm imagining Karen going to work like that. It's an......interesting picture.
or the brown haired lady
And I second that motion
Disappointed she hasn't been shit enough this episode. :(
He is in boss mode right now.
Jim ain't looking so great right now.
I... don't know why.
with the beautiful eyes
These guys look like absolute dicks right now.
Jm's gonna cry
that they're calling Jim a control freak and also saying he can't make a decision on his own.
shit he's never mentioned that before.
In that business documentary Only Fools And Horses
GO AWAY I CAN'T STAND YOU
Just doesn't look right.
Melody, in some sort of toweling tracksuit is just fiiiiiiine
As if I didn't already want a piece of that.
Melody dun speek french.
I hope Natasha lasts until the interviews for comedy value. 'Yeah?'
The room always goes silent whenever he speaks, because he always speaks sense.
He goes someway towards balancing out the WACKY COMEDIAN.
I saw him on an episode of Cash In The Celebrity Attic and he's such a dude.
but I reckon it would be really hard to distribute a over 60 free magazine, most free magazines are handed out indiscriminately at tube stations in rush hour, dont think there would be many people who fit about
and hope that their 60 year old brains hadn't decayed quite enough that they were incapable of reading
For instant as many copies of Sport went in gyms as was doled out on the tube.
The over 60s is a gigantic market - their execution and negotiation was just off the mark. In real life, that would be a cash cow, trust
and i dont know if i like Jim anymore
He's clearly a cunt, but a charming cunt. Like a kitten that shits in your bed.
but he is indeed a cunt
and hence was right to be fired.
Jim has more about him. Glen has nuttin but his simpleton charm
I've never seen anything like it. If the other team had gone for Zimmer as a title she'd have been long gone.
With the concept they had, I'd have just appropriated the tagline and called it either Out With The Old or (preferably) In With The New.
At least it's kinda memorable. The fact that it looked fucking awful was the worst part. Not as awful as the LAD mag though (which I can't even remember he name of).
If this was the real world he'd have dispatched his enemies long ago.
He clearly should have been fired as well. I think 'Hip Replacement' could actually have made for a very strong magazine, but Jim ruined it by completely missing the point, changing the design and producing content that didn't match original concept.
If he'd have brought Zoe in then he would have been fired. But he knew that. Also, Glen was right; Sugar clearly has some kind of problem with engineers.
probably stems from the fact that the Amstrad cpc464 was a waste of everyone's time compared with the mighty Spectrum. So, yeah, Sir Clive Sinclair is another chappie who deserves more props than some wank who got lucky by selling a few more Sky set top boxes than he could've ever hoped for.
was the biggest pile of cack i've ever owned.
is that you sit at home angrily murmuring about how you could do a better job on the tasks, but it was genuinely quite painful watching those pigshit thick dildos fuck up a task that crosses over with what I do and that I would have absolutely owned.
Jim is a twat who'd get a sharp smack in the mouth acting the way he does anywhere but in a place of work, Natasha barely qualifies as a human being YEAH, Susan looks a piranha and is pretty much the archetypal only child ... HATE THEM SO MUCH.
Jim knows how to play the game but is a bit too pantomine villain. Probably didn't get sacked as he's the only one who makes for more interesting viewing.
All the women are pretty annoying with montone voiced Zoe being the most likeable. That's how bad it is.
This was one of the challenges where you know you could do better than the contestants. I would have done a Food magazine (shock horror) that would have pissed on their efforts.
would have been easily the best options imo, said as much the minute the task was revealed- both would cater to the horrible young professional/aspirational demographic those 'freemimiums' go for, neither is currently represented in that market, both allow for increasingly-popular 'advertorials' ...
I should win The Apprentice, really.
Piss On My Chips
I used to be a media buyer and when Jim was refusing to negotiate I was chuckling away.
Someone on one of those free titles treid to charge me ratecard once. Absolutely refused to move on it. Being all apprentice style why would I give you a discount. I laughed at him and put the ad in a competitor. The mag went under a few weeks later.
I also found it quite funny last night because as a client I've sacked one of the agencies they went to last night, and the other got turned down in a pitch and gave us a massive YOU'RE TOO SMALL TIME FOR US ANYWAY
