The Bank

We started another freelance gig today at an agency called The Bank. It's not finance but integrated advertising. One of the sweet things they did was to remake La Dolce Vita for Peroni.
They did some sweet stuff for Peroni, remaking La Dolce Vita. We'll be there for a couple of days, maybe longer helping out on a pitch. Fun and lots of work so far.

Go easy on the full-fat Coca Cola Wal! I remember doing a placement at TBWA a few years back, and right next to where we worked was a fridge full of red Coca Cola. I used to drink about 8 cans a day just because they were there! My partner had to peel me off the ceiling at the end of each day...

Sounds like you're both cranking it out. Top stuff.

Infact, it looks like you're both cranking one out too.

One coke a day's enough for me. Can't take caffeine that well anyway.
And I'm not snoozin' :)

that peroni thing was really NOT exciting. Long beyond reason, shot in a way that was done 50 years ago (by Fellini, obviously), and what says about the beer? Peroni: it's italian. Good luck with your placement dudes, but try Not to look at that peroni piece of crap for inspiration.

That post had me thinking I was having a 3 second groundhog day moment Wal! Think you accidentally repeated yourself there. Probably a symptom of having lots of work to do so I'll forgive you! ;)

It looks suspiciously to me like you’re sitting in Ikea.

You should charge for product placement.

Good luck guys.

The Bank have done loads of great work.

On top of your examples, they also remade La Dolce Vita for Peroni, and did that La Dolce Vita remake for Peroni!

@3.02, I think it is Ikea - in fact I think it's the one on the Purley Way in Croydon...

I was in there at the weekend and picked up the fan that's behind them, but changed my mind and ditched it in the sofa section.

Wal?

Yeah SPRUNG! it is ikea. i bumped into the guys there on monday. they had ok items in their trolley but a couple of bits really let them down.

They were about to buy some utility shelves which they were planning to put up in their lounge.

i told them about how back in 84 (??) when I was living with Phil collins, I picked up some simlar shelves from b&q (pre ikea) which i put up in our lounge as a surprise for him when he got home from drumming that night.

when he got back he didnt even look at them He just sat on his beanie bag and proceeded to tell me about how he got into drumming and being a drummer. This went on for about 2 hours. I could'nt believe it. i mean it was great hearing his pearls of wisdom about his Pearls (his gag) but FFS, he juztt didn't acknowledge the shelves

basicaly, it turned out that everyone else he'd lived with had had the same style of shelves.

moral of story - if you want to impress Pphil collins, then you need to get something different.

so the lads took my advice and headed back into the shop. they then got in touch with me yesterday and told me about the changes they'd made. Wal had bought a magazine rack to go next to the fridge and jai had bought several bunk beds with built in desks for them to work from.

W-w-w-w---w-inner!!!. Needless to say Phil loved it and gave them both a job. Easy easy easy lover!

cheers,

EC xxxx

Some more advice to add the thousands of other Noddies on here dishing it out. Lose the chinstrap Wal. No-one will employ you with one of those. Either go full beard or clean shaven. Definitely not the strap or just as bad, some gay moustache.

Everyone looked at me at work today when I laughed so loud at the chin strap comment.

Please don't get rid of it. Please!

Whilst I'm proud of my chin strap comment, could you please edit the shocking piece of grammar? Please!
