Would a Plumber Do Free Work for ‘Exposure’?

Comment

Here’s a short comedy sketch that creatively sums up what photographers and other creatives often experience: being asked to do free work in exchange for “exposure.”

In the 1.5-minute sketch above, titled “Working for Free,” Irish sketch trio Foil Arms and Hog imagines what the resulting conversation might be like if a plumber were offered the same type of trade.

A while back, we shared a different sketch that imagines a hitman being asked to work for free. Pretty soon afterward, an ad agency went around to different real life businesses and recorded people’s reactions to requests for free spec work.
