Creative Artists Agency (CAA) was the object of a derisive advertising campaign on Tuesday (June 11) in Los Angeles. The campaign is reportedly the work of CAA’s rival agency William Morris Endeavor (WME). According to the LA Times, ads installed at the Westfield Century City mall featured the word “CAAN’T,” in CAA’s signature red-and-white color scheme. The ads referenced a recent New York Post Page Six column that claimed a CAA client was unhappy with his or her representation.
