It may just be us, but you generally you shouldn’t insult the people who give you an award.
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld toed that line when accepting a CLIO Award Oct. 1. The award is given out by advertisers and Seinfeld used his nearly-five minute acceptance speech to mock, you guessed it, advertisers.
The best line?
“I think spending your lives 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.”
Of course, everyone in attendance laughed and cheered. Satire is a true art form.
