“You cannot bore people into buying; compromise has no place in advertising. Whatever you do, go the whole hog.”

Words to live by.

I have to say that I’m not thrilled with the concept of the piece -- the bio is great, but grounding it by whinging about a popular TV show colours it with a petty shade.

Ogilvy stands on his own; no comparisons necessary. Ironically, this profile compromises by making an appeal to a TV audience. It isn’t pure Ogilvy. It does not go the whole hog.
