Zulu Alpha Kilo — Scared Straight Out of Advertising — Toronto, Canada
Award winning Toronto based agency Zulu Alpha Kilo releases the most terrifying (and hilarious) recruiting video, called Scared Straight Out of Advertising. Geared towards wide-eyed ad students entering the work force, this hilarious video is meant to scare them straight out of a career in the business. Toronto-based independent Zulu Alpha Kilo, winner of Ad Age’s international small agency of the year in 2017 produced it for Canada’s hotly contested Strategy Magazine’s Agency of the Year Competition. As part of the award show ceremony, shortlisted agencies are asked to create a short video for their agency. Creating a self-promo video for the event has become something of an annual tradition and an unofficial competition in itself, with top Canadian agencies all vying to have the best video of the night.
