You may remember the ad I posted a couple of weeks ago announcing the closing down of award-winning Toronto advertising agency GJP and their Closing Down Liquidation Fire Sale. The sale took place last week, with $8500 being raised for charity, along with a closing party. Halfway through the closing party an announcement was made – GJP was being reinvented as Blammo Worldwide. The closing party then turned into an opening party. The closing and sale garnered a lot of national and international media attention. GJP co-founder and Chairman Alan Gee received phone calls from as far away as China on the closure. Everyone at the agency remained tight-lipped on the stunt until the reveal at the closing party.
Digital advertisment created by Blammo, Canada for Blammo, within the category: Agency Self-Promo.
