Congratulations to Brian Watson, joint deputy creative director of
FCB, and Robert Ballin, deputy chairman, who both celebrated 25 years at
the agency last week with a boat-party on the Thames.
As if that wasn’t a feat in itself, during his time at FCB, Watson has
produced more than 500 commercials for the Daily Mail since the agency
won the account in 1980. It was with this huge effort in mind that
agency bosses contacted the Guinness Book of Records to ask, well, is
this a record?
We’re pleased to reveal that it is - and the chairman of FCB, Robert
Hamer, was present on the boat to present Watson with a World Record
certificate for - and here’s the official bit - producing more TV
commercials for one client than anyone else.
We wonder how long the record will stand?
