Yep, it’s basically just as silly as it sounds. From what we’ve been told, this campaign from Detroit’s own Campbell-Ewald has been years in the making and concerns two adult peregrine falcons, which currently have three nest eggs about to hatch on the roof of the agency’s current Warren, MI headquarters. The campaign’s origins date back several years when C-E employee Paul Lenney (who serves as property manager) decided to construct and install a nest box on the agency’s rooftop in the hopes that a pair would land and ultimately reside up top.
Well, it took nearly a decade, and Campbell-Ewald has decided to celebrate this auspicious event (we think) with a web-based onslaught led by group digital CD Iain Lanivich that includes a Tumblr site, livestream footage, a birthdate pool, the Twitter hashtag #CEfalcons and even a meme generator (thanks for the personalized pic). Too bad we’re just stuck with a multitude of less-exotic pigeons here in NYC.
