Commonwealth Games Wrap-up

1. If the athletes were giving each other Golden Showers during competition nights, imagine what last night's after party was like. No, don't.

2. Insult + injury : During the closing ceremony one of the keynot songs was " Don't Dream It's Over" sung by an Aussie sheila like it was Waltzing Matilda

That's enough about that.

Saw a Tui billboard on the Southern M'Way yesterday.

Fourth. Yeah Right.

Thought it was absolute shit.

A) Doesn't make sense.

B) If I was an athlete coming home from the airport I'd be pretty fucked off.

C) Not funny.

D) Time to stop letting the public do your billboards. Haven't seen a good one in ages.

I laughed out loud at the one before that: Tape the women's weightlifting for me.

The strike rate of good to so-so seems to be around 1 in 3.

Tui billboards. Weren't they originally created by Mojo Wellington - when there was a Mojo Wellington.

Mentioning Mojo Wellington reminds me of Sean Cummins. No wonder it doesn't exist any more. (Mojo Wellington, not Wellington).

The Tui account has passed through more people than London water.

Mojo Wellington started off the whole thing (Richard Maddox, I think), then it strangely went to Goldsack Harris Thompson, before losing it to M&C who then lost it to Saatchis. All agencies have done Yeah Rights. But the client has written a lot more.
