A late goodbye, luv.

Last Sunday was the very, very, very (increasing accentuation) last day in London for this wonderful young lady:
Havana Cigars Sold Here.The next big thing: wear headphones, even if there's no music on.

That's why on Friday some nice chaps, mostly followers of the "wear headphones around your neck...and let them be big ones" gang met in Soho to celebrate the day before the day before the day of Lauren leaving London (woo, a triple allitaration. We had a nice time, behaved stupidly (see previous post) and then went back to bed. Only to meet at Waldemar's party (nice flat, mate) again. Only to meet on Sunday afternoon around Harrod's area (posh isn't it?) to have our final cup of coffee.
Will and me accompanied Lauren to the tube station and into her train. While walking back Will nearly stepped onto something very familiar. Lauren's glasses. Brilliant. Two men, dressed in coats run along the platform...just like in a bad James Bond movie. We met at the next station and had our really. really last goodbye.
Lauren two.Who's that lady staring into the camera? I don't know. was a short but great time. I enjoyed the few evenings and days we had and really miss you. Hopefully Meike and me can make it to Australia next year, so we can meet again. Now this may sound pathetic, but it's wonderful to know you and I am looking forward to see you again. Because there aren't many people like you around. Bussi, du Flachpfeife.

Feel free to use these pictures against us.

And please refer either to the "two idiots from London" or the "two queer idiots". Your cooperation is much appreciated, thank you very much, blah, blah, ta.
Two idiots.
Two queer idiots.

It's always hard to create the ad that follows an ad that was loved and awarded by both consumers and creatives. The "Balls" ad for SONY by Fallon London is probably the best example. Over the last days two new commercials aired. One for the international market created by Fallon, the highly discussed "Play-Doh Bunnies". And on the other side a film done for the Asian market by Young&Rubicam (correct me if I am wrong). It's all about colourful yarn and a pyramide.

Which one do you prefer or like?

"Play-Doh Bunnies" by Fallon London

"Pyramide" by Young&Rubicam

yeah! YEAH! Y-E-A-H!

The perfect song for everything from A to Z, from 7 am to 1 am. For getting up, for taking a shower, for walking to the Great Portland Street Station, for standing on the tube, for sitting on the tube, for leaving the tube, for walking along Bishopsgate, for entering the agency, for making coffee, for answering emails, for writing posts, for swearing on other blogs, for writing copy, for having lunch, for thinking, for coming up with stuff, for leaving the agency, got it, have you?
