Both of these remixes were actually overseen by creator Juan Cabral, Fallon’s wonder phenom CD. Gorilla is re-cut to Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart. Airport Trucks is retooled to Bon Jovi’s Living on a Prayer, rumored to be the agency’s original preferred track. Both spots will be played out in full length, taking up an entire ad break during the finale of Big Brother on Channel 4, at 10.30pm in the UK.
Struggling media agency Carat is planning a major restructuring of its U.S. operations, including an undetermined number of layoffs – news it accidentally released today via a memo the agency’s top New York-based HR executive e-mailed to the entire agency that appeared to be intended only for senior managers.
Commuters arriving at Liverpool’s Lime Street station were greeted by a 50ft (15m) high mechanical spider clinging to a nearby redundant office block. The 37-tonne beast heralds the start of a five-day piece of street theatre as part of the Capital of Culture year. It has been built by French company La Machine, which in 2006 brought the streets of London to a standstill with the Sultan’s Elephant.
The spider is believed to be “waking up” on Friday. It will descend from its current position on the side of Concourse House on Thursday to be moved to the city’s new arena, before coming to life on Friday. The creature will then begin exploring the city later that evening.
