    The date for this year’s Denver Zombie Crawl has been announced as October 18th at 6pm. Participants can come as a zombie or as a victim. Victims indicate their desire to be “attacked” by wearing a duct tape X and appearing at points along the crawl. Victims are also encouraged to draw attention to themselves by screaming things like, “Oh sweet lord, Armageddon is upon us. Is that a freakin’ zombie coming at me? Gimme my shotgun, baby, so I can blow the head off the damn thing. Dude, dude, you’re not really supposed to bite me. Dude, seriously.” Should be some good family fun.

    Boulder-based (for all those who say Miami) Crispin Porter + Bogusky has been picked by clothing chain Old Navy as the lead creative agency on its $200 million advertising account.

    CP+B will “develop seasonal campaigns that bring the brand’s fun and value-driven aesthetic to life through advertising and compelling in-store experiences,” Old Navy said in a statement late Tuesday. The new ads are scheduled to appear in March, the industry journal AdWeek said on its website. AdWeek said CP+B beat out the TBWA\Chiat\Day agency of Playa del Rey, Calif., for the account.

    It’ll be interesting to see what happens with this notoriously fickle account in Boulder.

    Oh, shoot. Look whose mug has been popping up around town – a little nod to the Obama postings during the DNC, we think. A man with a chest like that gets our vote. He should also have yours.
