Wow- not a single one of these people even the ones who have kids can actually explain what they do in a way that a 10 year old can understand. Do they all all 10 year old kids know what a brand is without giving an example, understand what an ad is or is intended to do and understand all of the digital buzzwords. Was laughing out loud at all of these.
