CAMPAIGN DIARY: Billy was knocked out by partners’ homage (or was it the booze?)

’One Billy Mawhinney, there’s only one Billy Mawhinney, one Billy Mawhinn ...’ - OK, you get the drift. Here’s Nick Welch, Billy’s soon-to-be ex-partner at A. P. Lintas, singing along with Billy’s future co-creative, Ogilvy and Mather’s Leon Jaume, in a touching (if a little surprising) display of camaraderie.

The duo linked up at a recent Lintas party for a musical tribute to

their favourite art director. The song they chose was a particularly

original version of the miserable country star, Hank Williams, song, I’m

so Lonesome I Could Cry. It was made all the more melodious, we are

told, by an especially generous flow of alcoholic beverage.



But what are they looking at? Sources claim it was Billy himself, by now

comatose on the carpet, but that can’t be right. Can it?
