Ogilvy Pirate Recruitment sets a thief to reel in a new agency digital wizard

Here’s an interesting recruitment wheeze from Ogilvy Brussels: apparently young web wizards download expensive ‘application suites’ from pirate websites because they can’t afford their own. So Ogilvy set up a fake pirate site (still with us?) to entice some of these people but instead of offering applications offered a job opportunity at the agency.

And, as you can see above, got one. Whether or not the aformentioned Steve will run off with the agency’s secrets we wait to find out.
