The Greatest American Copywriter Wasn't A "Mad Man".

He is a Midwestern son of a preacher who as an adman vomited before presentations, not from liquor like that hack Don Draper, but from fear—fear that a new client wouldn't have the balls to buy his ballsy ads. Read more about him, and see many of his best ads in my weekly post on VICE.

Thanks for remembering Tom McElligott. He and Pat Fallon had just started their shop when I first moved to Minneapolis. McElligott's work always captured my attention--and everyone else's. He was one of the first to help me see copywriting as an art/craft/purpose.
