Crisis Averted: DDB’s ‘Owl’ Has Landed

 

Phew, all is well in the world again now that we know that DDB San Francisco’s paper-mache owl which we mentioned a couple of days ago has safely returned to the agency. We’re not sure what the whole purpose of this was, but it sure as hell merits a “This is So Stupid” category ala Deadspin. Anyhow, there was another agency-wide email sent out yesterday. Read below.

“From: Front Desk <redacted>
Date: Wednesday, September 19, 2012 2:12 PM
To: “SF.DDB All” , “SF.TRIBAL All”
Subject: FW: Darius Found

After several days of heart wrenching anguish, it is my pleasure to report that Darius the Senior Papier-mâché Owl has been safely returned.

Thank you for your concern and support.”

That’s not all though, folks. Perhaps in an effort to crank up the absurdity factor to 11, DDB even put out a release announcing Darius the owl’s return and resumption of duties. If you really must, read in full after the jump and let’s move on.
