"It's been a bit of a nightmare. It's a much bigger production on many levels." - Paul Silburn, Saatchi & Saatchi's joint ECD, tells Campaign.tv how the agency created its latest T-Mobile ad, which saw 13,000 people descend on Trafalgar Square for a mass karaoke event

"Now on to the next RFI. It also has to be sent off today. But Garry has other ideas. He has become obsessed with getting on the Innocent pitch.
