Indeed, I hate the men's TV ad very, very much. Not as much as I hated the women's disgusting boobfest, but I hate the VersaCorp TV ad. The men conclude their presentation by handing out cigars, which Deutsch derisively calls "tchotchkes." While I would agree with Donny under normal circumstances, the fact that he played so eagerly into the women's boob-offering and is now acting like cigars are cheesy and pedestrian is a little bit ridiculous. Although it would have been really funny if, when Heidi shook her boobs at him, he had derisively said, "Ah, tchotchkes." The men leave.
In a meeting with his minions after the guys leave, Donny says he thought both pitches were "pretty good." Woman Minion says that she thought the women were "sharper" and "more insightful" about their presentation, while the men were "generic." Can you imagine how not-insightful you have to be to have Omarosa and Heidi described as "more insightful" than you are? I think I would cry. Woman Minion specifically says that "if [she] were hiring people," she'd go with the women. Okay, but I didn't think the task was to get hired long-term by Deutsch. The task was to do this campaign for this client. Saying "I didn't like what they did in this situation, but I think they'd be great long-term" does not seem to me to be judging in the right way. Man Minion says that he preferred the men's campaign, because it was "the best business solution." In other words, he's judging by who solved this particular problem the best, not necessarily who impressed you more as far as what they might do in other situations. And that's how I thought it should have been judged. The task wasn't to prove that you would be great at other advertising campaigns for a different client. There was a specific product here.
