Former JWT Toronto Creative Wins Lion, Needs Money to Buy It


Former JWT Toronto creative Sean Gallagher just won a Cannes Bronze Lion for his work on Wash Your Hands. Some of you may be familiar with the whacked Cannes oddity which requires you to actually buy the award you just won so Sean, who is no longer employed at JWT Toronto, is looking to raise money to buy the Lion. Which, itself is whacked, because we're sure JWT Toronto will be more than kind enough to pick up the tab. If not, well, that's just whacked too. Did we mention this business is whacked?

It seems that a Bronze Lion costs about $1,150. I can see how that would be a lot of money for an unemployed creative with a toddler.

Can't the client pick up the tab? Oh wait...I went to, and it appears the ad was sponsored by the "Toronto Restaurant and Bar Association," which, as far as google goes, doesn't really exist.

me thinks JWT did pony up the cash.... for their own one to sit in the lobby, buying a former employee one probably wasn't outlined in their budget.
