Agencies Make NFL Playoff Bet, Loser to Promote Other For A Week
When the Carolina Panthers won the right last Sunday to take on the Chicago Bears, Bears fan Kevin Lynch, a partner at Hadrian's Wall agency in Chicago, knew just where to find some action. He emailed David Oakley, the co-CD of Charlotte's BooneOakley. The wager was simple: no points, winner take all. The loser will check their ego at the door and promote the winner's agency.
If Carolina wins, the Hadrian's Wall homepage will inform visitors that BooneOakley is a much better agency and direct people to the BooneOakley site for a week. If Chicago wins, the BooneOakley homepage will inform visitors that Hadrian's Wall is a much better agency and direct people to Hadrian's Wall homepage. The two agencies have even created dueling winners logos to go along with the bet.
Hmm. Perhaps the two agencies are merging and this is just a means to gin up some banter. Or, perhaps, it's it's just inline with an agency that celebrates its fifth anniversary by hosting a party at which two of the partners partake in a spoof wedding.
