Ad agency starts artist-in-residence program

Ad agency Leo Burnett launched an "Artist in Residence" program this week, where they basically hire actual indie-rock bands to come to the offices and help the agency better figure out how to incorporate music into their commercials. Their first hire? Why, none other than Collective Soul.

It begs a question, of course: When is someone going to hire me to be a damn artist in residence for an ad agency? Smartass observations about poets and slackers, now for sale! (Thanks to AdPulp for bringing this to my attention.)
