What The F*ck Is My Brief?
An ode to the folks in ad land, WTFIMB generates a random creative brief to stimulate and excite...something.

Based off other well known WTF sites, WTFIMB creates sometimes funny, sometimes deceptively good creative briefs from well trodden industry tropes.
Role: programmer, junior copywriter

WTF, is that officially related to What the Fuck Is My Twitter Bio, or did you just steal their formatting? (Or did you both steal the format from What the Fuck Is Something Else Entirely?)

Not officially related. I think the meme started with http://whatthefuckshouldimakefordinner.com/. What The Fuck Is My Twitter Bio used WTFEngine - https://github.com/soulwire/WTFEngine/ - which is what we based this on. I should put that credit in the comments in the HTML. The MIT license is only in the JS files.

Open disclosure. Good. (I wonder how long it would take to do an omnibus WTF site post... with yours first, of course!)

This is great.

Also, I was not aware of WTFEngine... oh the possibilities..

I work in advertising. This is like watching the abyss stare back at me from…well, the abyss. My job…or, whatever.

I'll pass this along.

This one killed me - "A feminine hygiene brand wants to promote its status as a global thought-leader to children under 10 using a GoPro."

Then I cried for a long time. I have truly wasted my life.
