DIARY: If you’re planning to nick a mobile phone, don’t do it near WCRS

A bright sunny day in spring and the WCRS account manager, Charlie Gatsky, was strolling through Covent Garden talking to her Orange client on her Orange mobile phone, as she does.

A bright sunny day in spring and the WCRS account manager, Charlie

Gatsky, was strolling through Covent Garden talking to her Orange client

on her Orange mobile phone, as she does.



Suddenly, a passing villain (presumably impressed by the award-winning

advertising) grabbed Charlie’s phone from her and made off. She, in true

have-a-go style, gave chase, but the villain proved too fast.



Unfortunately for him, however, he sprinted directly past the Prince of

Wales public house where the entire WCRS creative department was sunning

itself in preparation for another gruelling afternoon’s work. In an

instant, the team took stock of the situation and sprung into action.



First out of the blocks was the art director, Andy Dibb, pint glass

still in hand, tailed by the rest of the department. With a well-aimed

boot, Dibb felled the thief who promptly disappeared under a sea of

other boots. Fortunately for him, a passing policeman arrived and put a

halt to the firm-but-fair guardian angel-style justice being meted out.

To a chorus of ‘the future’s not so fucking bright now, mate!’, the

cuffs went on.



‘All in a day’s work,’ Dibb panted. ‘Mind you, if it had been a Mercury

One-2-One we probably wouldn’t have bothered.’



Reports that Robin Wight immediately began a roadside pitch for the

Metropolitan Police account have proved unfounded to date, but we

wouldn’t put it past him.
