Farewell Jake Bester


The day has come. To say good-bye to Captain Ogilvy. Jake Bester. The red stripe looks a little faded today, the bee's buzz is a little fainter. He is going forth into a new world of 'new' media. This is his blog farewell post. (Cards are totally 90's) (I know how much he loved reading my blog everyday - oh how we laughed and laughed.)

Fare. Well. Jake. Bester.

Jake,
I will miss getting lost in your eyes
The endless, dreamy blue ocean of your eyes.
I would swim in that ocean
I would swim forever.
I would drown.
If you'd let me.

From Cuan

Wishful thinking maybe, but if we buy you a bandana will you stay?

I've worked out that I've known you half my life. In fact I don't think you age. When you're like 80 you'll be going on 35.

Anyway, good luck and enjoy your new adventure. Will see you on the circuit.

Cheers,

Robbie

Jake, it's been real! Gonna miss you bud. The Ogilvy Football Team won't quite be the same, but at least we still have Dane. I will keep the flag of "reckless inappropriate motor vehicle advertising" flying high. Best for the new adventure. Don't forget the little guys.
Later, Andrew

Hey Jake...we haven't spoken much, but you've always been a cool guy. And you've done some amazing work for the agency. I wish you well at your new job. And...always have fun times.

Dearest Jake Bester,

Thanks for all those bordeline sexual times. I loved the way the awkwardness flew so easily off your chest and crotch region. I will miss all the hard times, so here's a little song from Kiss (did I say kiss)- what a coincidence.

Jakey Wakey,

"Live to win, 'till you die, 'till the light dies in your eyes
Live to win, take it all, just keep fighting 'till you fall

Live to win
Live to win

Yeah, live, yeah, win" - Paul Stanley from Kiss.

Luvvies,
Your little gingerkid
Matthew

Thando: "Jake is leaving????"
(sad face) Thinking out loud: There goes the studio's hotty!

You'll make the girls at your new office very happy!

Jake,

I said I wish I knew how to quit you. Then you quit. Was it me? I can't help but think it was me.

I'm sorry, Jake. But I'm just so... so... so cold on the inside now.

I guess we'll always have Justin. And you'll always be my radtimesawesome.

Rage against the dying of the light.

Always.

Yours,

Ant

Your surname starts with Best - I've heard that's where the English term originates from.

All the Best
Justin

thanks for the best nickname in the world, we'll miss you kid -

Jake, you're not bad looking for a lesbian.

I'd shag you any day.

Lots of love,
Rox

Upside down and inside out
Simply the Bester’s about to show Habari what it's all about
Now it's time for Jake to get on the mic
And make this mother party hype
he's taking it back to the old school
'Cause he’s an old fool who's so cool
If you want to get down
He’s gonna show you the way whoomp there it is
Let me hear you say
Whoomp there it is
Whoomp there it is
Louder
Whoomp there it is

Whoomp chak a laka chack a laka chak a laka chak a (repeat 4 times)

Love Dane

Jake,

So it has finally come to this...
But it is not really goodbye, because there is a guy at gym who looks just like you. Only he has lank muscles.

His name is BeefJake and he has expressed a keen interest in the art of copywriting.

Good luck on the interweb.

Your First Art Director.

All the best in your new job. Hope you have a blast there.
Sorry I can’t write anything witty, I have to save all my energy for Castle Lite and Old Mutual this afternoon.

Cheers bro.

Tried all day, but I can't think of anything funny to say. Guess that's why I'm in TV and not creative. Good luck, be happy and stay in touch.
Hope your next producer is more generous with per diems!
