Crispin Porter + Bogusky Auctioning Off Interns

Does anyone have $5,200 they'd like to lend Riptide? We would really like to buy our favorite Ad agencies' interns for the summer. Yes, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, they of the Sponge Bob ass shakin', Whopper scarificin', Bill Gates dada-in' campaigns, are auctioning off their interns' services this summer on eBay, and the bid is already up to $5,100

"The winning bidder will receive a creative presentation developed by our interns over a three month period, consisting of strategies, recommended brand positioning and concepts. No production services or finished advertising materials will be provided," says the fine print of the auction. 

"The interns only make minimum wage, so we thought this would be a great way to augment that," Alex Bogusky tells AdAge. "They're excited about that."

Between their Miami and Boulder, Colorado, offices the agency has about 38 interns, all of whom would apparently be working on the "creative presentation."
