    They are an advertising agency and even the video advertising themselves is garbage. I wouldn't pay them $5 to design a logo for a micro niche site

    Someone should have showed them fiverr.

    There was a corruption scandal like that in my city too (europe), they paid 36k for a logo like that, probably the owner of the agency was someone related to a politician and he sent him that contract.

    Thats why i cant accept to pay taxes, they get wasted for shit like that (and that is not even the really bad type of tax wasting)

    Contacts is contracts. I'm sure the ad company was connected to the party in power.

    I could have done a better one for $45k. Would have thrown in unlimited revisions as well.

    Wtf has happened man?

    You broke your mic so Dragon Naturally Speaking doesn't work anymore, and now you're having to type your posts, hence they're of normal length, rather than essay length? :p
