  • The King Dropping His Hard-Earned Cash For You

    / Comments (6)

    Burger King and their agency, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, are running a hot (not original, but hot), under-the-radar promotion in select cities right now, including Orlando and Chicago.

    The scheme goes like this. Someone drops their wallet in a high-traffic pedestrian area. When an unsuspecting passerby picks it up and tries to return it to the BK agent, they respond, “Keep it. It’s on The King.” Inside, there’s a note from The King to keep the wallet, cash ranging from a $1 bill to $100 bill, a gift card to Burger King, a “driver’s license” featuring The King, and a map of Burger King restaurants in the area in which the wallet was dropped. (There are some great little detail on the license, so be sure to read closely.) The whole thing is part of BK’s reverse pickpocket campaign, we imagine. Good stuff in tough economic times from CP+B.

  • Denver-Born Director Needs Your Help to Crash the Super Bowl

    / Comments (0)

    For the last several years, Doritos has given commercial filmmakers (and those hoping to be) the chance to have their commercials air during the Super Bowl. This year, Jonas Mayabb – who was born and raised here in Colorado, later graduating from Art Center and staying in LA to direct and win a whole bunch of impressive awards – has entered the competition.

    He’d like your help by checking out his spot on the Doritos site and (positively) commenting on it if you feel so compelled – in the hope of being chosen as a finalist for public voting into the big game from 1/5 – 1/25. It’s got a clown who gets accused of stealing Doritos and an evil, young kid who gets punched in the face for being the one who’s actually stealing them at the end. So, it’s pretty damn entertaining. Go give it a view before some wanker from Wichita ends up with his spot in the mix.

  • How About A Little Good News?

    / Comments (3)

    The Davey’s, an award show for small firms with big ideas, picked a local agency for one of its Best of Show awards.

    Rabble Rouser did some great integrated work for Weber Grills.

    So while we lament the economy, the loss of account to out-of-state agencies, and the general malaise that has become the creative mood, remember there is still good work being done in this town. And it is getting recognized.

    Congrats to the folks at Rabble Rouser.
