CAMPAIGN DIARY: Macca makes a meal out of having a laugh

While some of us can giggle quite delicately, there are people in this world who have deep, raucous and, if we’re quite honest, dirty laughs.

While some of us can giggle quite delicately, there are people in

this world who have deep, raucous and, if we’re quite honest, dirty

laughs.



It was just that sort of laugh that caused diners at Signor Zilli in

Dean Street to stare at a group of people from BMP DDB last week.



The agency’s executive creative director, John Webster, took his PA,

Mary Brooks, out for lunch and invited, among others, the agency’s PR

manager, Alex Young, along to the bash. One thing led to another and

Young let out the most filthy chortle - much to the hilarity of all

those around.



Young was horrified to feel a tap on her shoulder and, on turning

around, was confronted by a grey-haired man who, with a smile, told her

she had the dirtiest laugh he’d ever heard. He then returned to his seat

in the corner while the mortified Young hastily made her way out of the

restaurant to her waiting cab.



It was only when she saw the rest of the group pointing that she

realised who the man was. None other than Paul McCartney, accompanied by

his wife, Linda.



We assume the fervent vegetarians were tucking into Aldo Zilli’s

meat-free risotto.
