Monday Odds and Ends

By Patrick Coffee 

-Mother London’s first work for KFC since winning that account away from BBH is most notable for going waaaaaaay back to 2003 for a DMX tune. But who goes to KFC for “locally sourced” poultry? (British people, apparently.)

-FCB won a review to handle the BMW business in Canada, and KBS may soon have to defend in the U.S.

-Someone created a Game of Thrones agency spoof called Westeros Design that is really quite funny. We don’t know if it’s new or not.


-In other news, we saw some of Wieden+Kennedy’s very yellow outdoor ads for Chiquita bananas on a recent trip to Maine.

-The NRA has its rhetorical guns trained on the Washington Post in new ads.

-Carmichael Lynch developed several new visual identities for Jack’s Links just in time for the X Games.

-ndp of Richmond, Virginia created a Wimbledon-inspired version of the classic 8-bit game Pong.

-Believe Media has signed director Gemma Lee for representation in the US and UK. A native of Scotland, she was pegged as a filmmaker to watch by the Huffington Post in 2015.
