Anyone seen Blue Rubicon's award?

Just as Flack was preparing for a quiet night in, after the steamy shenanigans at Grosvenor House on Tuesday night, a rather sheepish Fraser Hardie got in touch.

Fraser Hardie: award before its disappearance
Fraser Hardie: award before its disappearance

Yes the same Fraser Hardie who founded Blue Rubicon; winner of the Consultancy of the Year, for the third year running. The agency now famed for its professionalism and reliability. Yes, Blue Rubicon; synomymous for being a safe pair of hands in any situation.

‘Er, remember how the Jules Rimet trophy [the World Cup for non-accolytes of the beautiful game] once got lost?…Er, we lost the trophy last night.
We have deployed our in-house dog but if it makes its way back to you…Fraser’.

When pushed by Flack, Hardie admitted that the award was last seen on the dance floor, circa 2am. ‘A couple of our staff were, er, dancing with it, in a slightly aggressive manner….’

Flack is mystified at such an image. Were they recreating John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever? Were they – perish the thought - taunting other agencies for failing to deliver this prestigious gong?

Any witnesses should contact our Missing Awards Line on 0208 267 4429. All callers’ names will remain anonymous.

In the meantime, please don’t have nightmares. Such incidents are relatively rare. Well, except when it happened to Frank PR last year. Hmmm.
