Diary: Grey sings out for Japan

Just when you thought the Comic Relief antics were over and it was safe to go back to work, Japan's earthquake crisis has sparked another raft of forced wackiness in adland.

For some reason, the nuclear meltdown has inspired several agencies to bake things and now you can't move for cake sales. Grey kept it Japanese with a day-long karaoke at the agency. Chris Hirst, Nils Leonard, and the joint managing directors Hugo Feiler and Simon White chimed in with a manly rendition of the Glee favourite Don't Stop Believin'. Apparently, Neil Hourston paid a lot of money to not join in. The singalong chalked up £2,000 for Japan.
