Flack: Flack's Week

Flack hears tell of a clash of the social media titans at a party last week.

Rumour has it that VCCP communities director Jed Hallam, formerly of Wolfstar, got into an altercation with Milo Yiannopoulos - the columnist and blogger who tweets as @Nero. An onlooker told Flack: 'Milo insulted Jed's VCCP friends, and it all got a little rowdy.' iPads at dawn, anyone? ...

Razorfish's senior social media consultant Tim Hoang was recently on holiday in Tibet when he seemingly got arrested for 'insulting a monk'. Hoang wrote on Facebook that he was 'wearing a big maroon bedsheet - they let me keep my silly David Beckham hairdo though ... phew.' Flack hopes to hear Hoang arrives home safely ...

If Cake ends up bagging the Sony consumer electronics account, then Flack might hazard a guess why. A bystander witnessed the agency putting a notice that read 'cake.believe' on the Sony meeting room door where it pitched for the business - a rather geeky play on the Sony Group brand message 'sony.believe'. We're sure that will swing it guys ...

And finally, Golden Goose PR ran the press room for the Peace One Day gig that took place on 21 September at the O2 London, featuring sets from Razorlight, Eliza Doolittle and Newton Faulkner. Best 'sleb' spot of the night? Vanessa Feltz eating chocolate ice cream in the front row. Hmmm.
