It’s the Barbie “Mad Men” collector dolls. That’s right, your favorite ad men as dolls, all dressed up ands ready to go to a client meeting! Now, what we need are Barbie “Client” collector dolls…then the kids can play Mad Men and Clients. It’ll be fun. Kids can pretend to be clients by doing really mean things to the Mad Men. And before you can say “Social Media” the Mad Men will be living in the abandoned Barbie House down in the basement, naked. It’s agency fun for everyone!

I started working with Kip McClanahan at Onnetworks.com last year. From the second I met him, I was caught up in his world wide web. What I enjoy most about Kip is his love for big ideas. He is a big thinker. I like big thinkers. We are a great match.com.
Once we were talking about how to drive more viewers to On Networks. A few days later, while driving to Austin for a meeting with Kip, I had a thought…David Lynch. If we could convince one of the greatest filmmakers of this generation to produce exclusive content for On, then we’d be onto something BIG. “Only On on” can you see the latest work of David Lynch.
Kip instantly saw the Big Idea.
A meeting was set up and before you could say, “don’t look at me!”, Kip and I were sitting in LA with the American Film icon, Mr. Eraserhead himself, David Lynch. Never have I met a more gracious, articulate man. He signed a poster for my daughter. And took a couple of pictures with Kip and I. We talked for two hours. It’s great when you meet a hero and they live up to your expectation. David Lynch is a great guy, unlike a lot of other “stars” I have met over the years.
Now, David Lynch is a part of Onnetworks.
I like it when ideas comes to life.
I like clients/friends/thinkers like Kip. He makes business fun.
