And News Group's ad director, David Emin, extended the hospitality to leading from the front when it came to the late-night escapades. On the first night of the trip, Emin, high on success after doing rather well at the casino, took MediaCom's David Kyffin on a mission to hit Barcelona's clubs.
Bored of one club, the pair decided to go on to another one, but on approaching the door, they were refused entry by an over-zealous bouncer. At this point, Emin cunningly decided to bribe the doorman with his casino winnings. A swift entry via a fire escape was secured, only for a tired and emotional Emin and Kyffin to realise that they were in the same club they'd just left.
You couldn't make it up.
