Monday Odds and Ends

By Patrick Coffee 

-W+K Tokyo recently released its own addition to the Nike “So Fast” campaign, this one starring a group of underground street racers who will surely serve as the protagonists of The Fast and the Furious 10: Fastest and Most Furious.

AdAge promoted reporter, novelist and Prospect Park jogger Ken Wheaton to the editor role as Nat Ives becomes executive editor and Natalie Zmuda assumes the managing editor title.

-Artist Brian Kane used a Photoshop thing called Healing Tool to help a couple of Massachusetts billboards blend into their surroundings. This makes sense because who honestly likes outdoor advertising?

-The Deutsch L.A. team looks very dirty in this prison break bus photo shoot, but we can’t read the corresponding piece because we don’t subscribe to Shots.

-International agency SuperHeroes hired Niek Eijsbouts (formerly of KesselsKramer) as a creative director in its Amsterdam office. He will work on LG, Converse and Coca-Cola among other accounts.

-Editor Jason Kileen, who worked on the “Timmy Brothers” clip in the stir this morning, has joined New York’s Spot Welders, which is not an auto repair shop on Third Avenue in Brooklyn.

-“Boutique production shop” @LArge Productions (most confusing agency name of the week?) hired Ashley Hydrick as an executive producer and partner.

-Sydney’s 303Lowe hired a bunch of new employees across departments…15, to be exact.

-Who wants to work on the Apple retail marketing account? Anyone? Hello?!
