JEFF KLINGHis plans to rebuild the Death Star on temporary hold, this current Chief Creative Officer of Fallon and former ECD of Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam and Euro RSCG New York hopes: 1) his ambient dislike of advertising has bettered his own work; and 2) that no one will mind him not having fulfilled his imagined potential as world-champion surfer. With help, Jeff created “The Most Interesting Man In The World,” rubber-stamped Nike’s “Write The Future” campaign and authored the Miller High Life manifesto and campaign that Academy-Award winner Errol Morris only halfjokingly refers to as his best work. His promotional work for Fight Club went viral before YouTube, when clips were called tapes and had to be sent by hand through a thing called the mail.
In his fourteen hundred thirty seven thousand years in the business, Kling has quarterbacked national and global work for Jaguar, Heineken, Coke, EA, Nokia, Volvo, Honda, The Eye Film Institute Netherlands, Miller Genuine Draft, ESPN, Clearasil, Gore-Tex, and many, many more—and for a host of dead dot-coms, for whose busted bubble he is personally responsible. Father to two semi-Austrian daughters who karate-kick the bejeezus out of every day and tell him no in three languages, possibly the luckiest bastard alive.
