No workplace email gets trashed faster than a mass reminder to clean out the company refrigerator. Heck, I wouldn't even bother to open one. (Such an email, I mean. The fridge—I'd open that, sure. I've got to stow my Limburger-onion hoagies someplace.) At Boston agency Allen & Gerritsen, however, the weekly "Clean the fridge" emails are savored like delicacies thanks to facilities associate Mike Boston, who also happens to be a local hip-hop artist. Each Friday, Boston (yes, it's his name and where he lives, deal with it) cooks up a sweet confection of pop-culture references, employee/client riffs and in-jokes designed to remind staff to remove their leftovers from the premises.

Allen & Gerritsen put together this charming series of TV spots for the Los Angeles Zoo's LAIR (Living Amphibians, Invertebrates and Reptiles) environment. If nothing else, the agency should be commended for pairing up Slash and Betty White, who are both on the zoo's board of trustees and have an unexpected, and bewildering, on-screen chemistry. They must use the same amount of foundation, too, because Slash's complexion hasn't been this smooth since Reagan was president. Also, someone should tell the snakes in the second ad that Slash sold his place in the Hills. More spots after the jump.
The goofy grins and wide-eyed expectation on Mom and Dad's faces in this 99 Restaurants spot from Allen & Gerritsen underscore the odd (unintentional?) kinkiness of the premise. The theme […]
