Flack: BA lands Darcey Bussell for Red Nose Day 'face' ad; Valentine's Day celebrations at PrettyGreen
If you're out and about at an industry event, make sure that you're on your best behaviour, because the mysterious Flack is watching you...
It was Samuel Dix's lucky day as he stood inside Waterloo Station holding a 'hire me' sign in the hope that a passer-by would give him a job. The 22-year-old media graduate caught the eye of Kirsty Langan, a senior director of Clarity PR, who offered him a junior role at the agency. After being thrown out of Charing Cross and Paddington stations, is t was a case of third time lucky for Dix and it shows that persistence and standing out from the crowd really does pay off.
British Airways celebrated this year's Red Nose Day by inviting Strictly Come Dancing judge and former prima ballerina, Darcey Bussell to choreograph a recreation of the airline's famous 1989 'Face' advert, using BA volunteers. Travellers flying into Heathrow were able to catch a glimpse of the giant face complete with red nose, to illustrate this year's theme - 'Make Your Face Funny For Money'.
To celebrate National Chip Week, Eulogy and Sarson's Vinegar hosted a pub quiz in a chip show in Soho. The agency called on celebrity gossip newsletter Popbitch to write the quiz, which included a picture round, 'Chip off the old block', celebrity arguments - 'Chip on their shoulder' - and carving celebrities out of potatoes. This is Samm Taylor, editor of Real People, holding Keith Lemon, believe it or not.
Love was in the air at Pretty Green, which celebrated Valentine's Day with a lucky dip for staff to treat their mystery Valentine with surprises throughout the day. The office put their creativity to the test, with gifts including all-day coffee refills, grow-your-own boyfriends, sweets, gin, singagrams, jokes and a shrine. Strict rules were followed - it had to be a secret and no funny business. Quite right.
