Agency.com Fist Bumps Way Out of Subway Pitch
Hmm. Well it's not like anyone didn't see this one coming. As soon as we woke up this morning, we saw that Ariel, who had her own eloquently negative opinion on the subject, sent us an electronic fist bump to let us know Agency.com had pulled out of the Subway pitch. The reason apparently, is related to a conflict with another piece of business the agency was pitching. Right. Agency.com claims the video debacle had nothing to do with its decision to pull out of the pitch with a spokesperson telling Ad Week in typical face saving fashion, "Our decision was based solely on this conflict of interest." Yes, there's only so many fist bumps a single agency can handle at one time. We guess everyone can't roll big all the time.
