New York's Worst Bosses: Peter Arnell 'Before'

We felt it was our responsibility to bring you just one more story about purportedly nasty adman Peter Arnell. This one dates from his pre-slimdown days, like this (admittedly crappy) photo. According to our tipster, Arnell used to like to demonstrate his loyalty to his clients by publicly using their wares. Commendable preach/practice ratio, right? Except when it allegedly involved binge-eating food-related clients' products—from M&Ms to Campbell's microwave dinners—voraciously in front of a captive audience. "How did he lose the weight?" our tipster wonders. "He was one of those guys who sweats when he eats." Mm-mm good!
