Employees at PA Ad Company Receive Christmas Cards from Deceased Boss
A relative of Bob McCully, a Pennsylvania advertising executive who passed away in August, had a little fun at his deceased stepfather’s expense this holiday season.
Christmas cards, “sent from” the departed McCully, were delivered to 400 company employees who described them as “eerie” yet “humorous.”‘Santa Run’ Annual Christmas…
Bob McCully, who died in August at 88-years-old, was not only an advertising big wig but also a satirical comic who made it a yearly tradition to send out hilarious Christmas cards to his employees.
For example: Several years running, McCully sent out cards from the perspective of his former dog.
Well, when the ad exec died in August his former employees expected the humorous holiday card tradition to die as well.
Not so fast! This year, cards were sent from beyond the grave!
This year’s cards read:
“Hello, please don’t call. I recently moved to a quiet neighborhood. My new place doesn’t have a phone and our gates close after dark.”
For some, it brought a smile to their face while others felt it was very eerie. Some felt both!
Longtime friend and employee of McCully David Newell said, “It was dark humor, but it was very funny. It had a certain whimsy that took the darkness away. Bob certainly got the last laugh.”
Friends say that McCully’s stepson Michael Clark helped produce the card.
