2010 VideoEgg Battle of the Ad Bands Begins

Oh boy, this Battle of the Ad Bands entry from Resource Interactive sure is clever. I mean, white people rapping about Facebook? What a totally original concept.

Alas, it’s that time of the year when advertising’s best and brightest dust off their old six-strings/laptop turntables in a sorry attempt to fulfill their long-abandoned rock star dreams. Luckily for them, they have the tools (and, apparently, the time) to produce expensive looking music videos that most actual musicians cannot afford.

The unanimous favorite, McCann Erickson’s More F**ing Cowbell (lolz), is attempting to become the first ever three-peat champion this year with their epic hair-metal stage show. It might be safe to count out “Dr. Cheesebarn” and their gut-wrenching Facebook rap already.

The finals happen live Tuesday, Sept. 9 the Highline Ballroom in Chelsea, Manhattan. Interested agencies and performers can register their acts and submit music to Advertising Week.
