In my 10+ years working in ad agencies, one of the things I've disliked the most is how everyone in the agency (especially the creative department) considers themselves intellectually and culturally superior to their clients and their customers. If I had a dime for every time I heard "The client is stupid," I could retire the word "demographic" from my lexicon and live happily ever after.

Leonard - I think that during the 60s almost everybody was sleeping with somebody -- However, you didn't know about it. And it's not just advertising it's every type of company/industry.
