12th October

This morning there was a huge office debate as to whether a shoe on the internet was black and blue or pink and white. It got quite heated and we had to resort to Photoshop to settle things even though it didn’t really get settled. 

Nando’s got in touch and said they would like all of the Nando’s branding removed from the listening session footage because when they Googled DaBossmen a music video came up of a woman getting hit by her boyfriend. This was all part of the narrative of the video whereby DaBossmen come in and save the day and beat up the boyfriend but apparently it is too risky for them to be associated with anything like this. Leyla had flagged this narrative with them multiple times a couple of months back but they hadn’t listened. 

Archie showed me the video treatment for Zonked and it involves a Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man so I sent a brief to digital asking how we could incorporate a Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man into some digital content. 

Ketflix N Pills responded and sent me some funny videos of people on drugs doing stupid things which we plan to cut to the music and get them to post. Still think this could work. The guy who runs was out in the Philippines making a documentary on drugs, about drugs, possibly also on drugs. He is going to send me some examples of videos. 

I am going away to Barcelona for the next couple of days so I had to let Wally know about Nando’s pulling out of the Listening Session. I did it at the end of the day and copied Róisín and Leyla in but logged out of my emails and deleted my email account off of my phone so I don’t have to respond.
