An Ad Agency Punked Kanye West From Its Offices During Last Night’s Flatiron Show

Targeted out-of-home from PNYC

Kanye West held an outdoor concert in front of the Flatiron Building in New York on Thursday night, but not everyone was completely welcoming. In fact, Partners + Napier's NYC office (at 11 East 26th St.) spelled out a message for the rapper on its windows—obviously a reference to Kanye's latest Grammys antics.

Agency execs Matt Dowshen and Jason Marks told Gothamist: "We are an agency actively researching the effects of out-of-home advertising. We found out Kanye was playing outside our building, and we wanted to make a point about being in the right place at the right time with the right message, and how that can be amplified through digital channels. And … don't fuck with Beck."

In other words, those who troll will get trolled back.
