What if ad concepts could talk smack?

If ad concepts on a conference room wall could talk, would they engage in a healthy exchange of ideas? No, more likely this would happen.

We normally stick to covering new campaigns, and we normally stick to stuff from Asia. But we're making an exception to share this video sent by Toronto-based agency Zulu Alpha Kilo. It hits close to home even though it was filmed half a world away.  

Created to play at an awards show, it chronicles a discussion among ad concepts awaiting client judgment. As the conversation carries on, you may laugh and/or cry.

Warning: Many of the talking concepts have foul mouths.
