OK so how does Cleveland's Marcus Thomas recruit for a developer? They strap a head cam on one of their developers, Nick Zwinggi, and have him record a day in the life of a developer at the agency. It's geeky for sure. Then again, the agency is seeking a geek to join them and code all kinds of interesting things into online sites and apps we can all enjoy.
Hot off her sexy Agent Provocateur gig, Monica Cruz is joined by her big sister Penelope in a new Nintendo Super Mario Bros. 2 ad.

That fate befalls Penelope as her sister watches and laughs.
Life is full of seemingly random events that, when we're not looking, take us by surprise and cause us to wonder, "why?" Today's random, yet to be explained event, is the death of film and commercial director Tony Scott, brother to Ridley and director of the blockbusters Top Gun and Beverly Hills Cop II among others. On Sunday, Scott jumped to his death from the Los Angeles County Bridge
Though reportedly he left a suicide note, the contents of the note have not yet been released.
Scott was a prolific director of commercials having directed hundreds through RSA Films. His latest was the currently airing Diet Mountain Dew spot featuring Mark Cuban created in partnership with BBDO. As with many of Scott's commercials, it's entertaining and amusing.
The man and his work will be missed.
