We just found out that former Escape Pod client Tom Bick has passed away suddenly at a tragically young age.
Tom was the OSCAR MAYER client that bought and approved the ads below for Claussen Pickles.
The ads are funny and likeable and filled with humanity. And they kind of don’t give a flying fig on some level.
Qualities I could also ascribe to Tom.
Let’s face it, this idea was a bit bonkers. I should point out that the actor in these spots was a former actual English army cavalry officer. He was bonkers too.
Tom was the brave client who knew what would resonate with consumers. He was really good at what he did. And he appreciated your passion.
We liked Tom a lot. Everybody did. He was just a nice guy.
I’m sure everyone who was close to him is experiencing turmoil right now.
We are thinking of you and we too are sorry that Tom is gone too soon.
He lives on in all our consciousness. Rest in peace.
