One exective of Publicis made a statement like "this" (see John Battele's blog).
I found a single expressive sentence in a special exhibition "DARWIN - Discover the man and the revolutionary theory that changed the world" in American Museum of Natural History,NY.
“Before Darwin, it was still possible to see the world as timeless, eternal and unchanging.”
Now those, who are devote to the advertising industry, can say:
“Before ******, it was still possible to see the world as timeless, eternal and unchanging in the Advertising industry.”
Guess what is "******".
I'll leave it to your imagination.
