An example of a confession on Creative Confessional.

Have you ever rejected three blind kids from a casting session? Or urinated in the office lift? Or told a client AOL Chat is making a comeback? Then you'll fit right in with the folks who've bared their ad souls at The Creative Confessional.

As featured on AdWeek, The Creative Confessional is a nifty site where adlanders can try and absolve themselves of their sins in an industry apparently replete with those on Santa's bad list.

The sins, which are uploaded anonymously, range from the fairly innocuous (“I still don't get Cadbury Gorilla”) to the more insidious (“I told a girl that she'd be in a commercial if she showed me her tits”). People then vote to either absolve or condemn them.

The confessions date back to mid-January and is reportedly the brainchild of creatives David Ma and Nick Hugh Schmidt.
