It’s never a Bruton Stroube Holiday Video/Card without a little behind the scenes tomfoolery. Oh, and if you haven’t watched the full bird yet, head over to www.bssholiday.com.
A famous person who writes words once wrote, “The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men gang aft agley.” If this were written today, it’d read something like, “Any plan you have will get jacked as soon as you add a box of wine to the mix.”
We wanted to know just how jacked things could get, so we broke out our kitchen set and spent three days doing things to a turkey that would make the most diehard carnivore a vegan. The result is Shift-Faced: A new twist to our traditional holiday video/card. read more » »
Hey, I like cookies and milk just as much as the next guy, but if I had to eat nothing but cookies and milk left by two billion kids in one night I’d probably judo kick Rudolph so hard he’d land in a new holiday.
Earlier this week graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister released this fantastic and slightly NSFW video. It concerns this trend where people call themselves “storytellers” instead of “bankers” or “husky suit salespersons” or whatever it is they do for a living. We laughed, and one of our guys had to change his Twitter handle.

Peanut butter and chocolate. Beer and wings. Scarlett Johansson and anything. Two good things are even better when brought together. Such is the case with TOMCATS ‘Collection of Cats and Men’, a calendar for Tenth Life Cat Rescue created by Mandi Kohlmeier and a crack team of experts.
So one of our Bruton Stroube guys happened to be hanging out on the set of HBO’s Veep one day where he happened to meet Dana Powell, who plays a reoccurring character on the show as well as ABC’s Modern Family. As they got to talking, he asked Dana, “You wouldn’t by happenstance want to do a comedy piece with Bruton Stroube, would you?”, to which Dana replied, “As it happens I would. In fact, I happen to write comedy with my friend Paul Emerson, who happens to be a comedy director.” read more » »
It’s that time of year again where we get to work with one of our favorite agencies, The Marlin Network, to put together a fun teaser/invite for their yearly breakfast event at an annual industry food show. read more » »
Back in the day—was a Tuesday I believe—an agency named Cannonball came up with the idea of making MLB’s opening day a national holiday. In order to do that, they would need 100,000 people to sign a petition, which would force the President…you know, of the freaking country, to consider the notion. So, Cannonball teamed up with a big beer company named Anheuser-Busch to join them in this brave effort, then hired yours truly to make the spots to make that happen. And get this Clementine, or whatever your name is…we did it.
