Jerry Seinfeld slammed the advertising industry at their own awards show, and it was perfect

Jerry Seinfeld laid into the advertising industry with a speech that was as damning as it was funny — and it all happened at their biggest awards event.

We came across this video of Jerry Seinfeld that was just too perfect not to share.

From Uproxx:

Jerry Seinfeld, who spends a lot of his time these days appearing in commercials, showed up to the Clio Awards, where they hand out awards for best commercials. There, he laid into the advertising industry with a speech that was as damning as it was funny. Seinfeld devoted practically the entire speech to how pointless and misleading commercials are, and yet, got nothing but laughs from the advertising industry in the audience.

“I love advertising because I love lying,” Seinfeld began.

“I think 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.”

One has to wonder if the inspiration for this brilliant rant came from another brilliant comedian, Bill Hicks. Either way, it’s a must see.
