Seinfeld's Advertising Award Acceptance Speech Mercilessly Mocks Ad Execs

Seinfeld Uses Ad Award Speech To Mercilessly Mock Advertising Execs

It takes a special kind of person to stand before a crowd of high-powered executives and mock their profession.

Jerry Seinfeld is that person.

During Wednesday's presentation of the CLIO Awards, a ceremony intended to honor "advertising, design, digital and communications," the comedian used his acceptance speech to reflect on the industry. Spoiler alert: He's not a fan.

"I love advertising because I love lying," he tells the crowd of ad execs. "Spending your life trying to dupe innocent people out of hard-won earnings to buy useless, low-quality, misrepresented items and services is an excellent use of your energy."
