Bill Hicks is a brilliant comedian (probably one of the best), and this is the first result (warning: lots of swearing - this is not work-safe) - Bill Hicks On Marketing:

If you have never hoped and prayed that Marketing is, indeed, changing away from these very real stereotypes, now might be a good time to start.
