GSD&M, Mullen Let it Snow

For most Americans, the hope of a “White Christmas” is diminishing with each new weather report. So, GSD&M and Mullen are taking it upon themselves to give a wintry experience to those whom God has deprived of snow and fun.

GSD&M is presenting the “One-Sided Snowball Fight,” an opportunity for users to pelt helpless employees with snowballs. The dude in the Santa costume in Andy Miller, a creative director/copywriter at the agency. When typing in “creative” on the site’s search bar, Mr. Miller is the first person who comes up, which is why his video gets on our site. Ah, the power of SEO.

Currently, GCD Jay Russell has been engaged in more snowball combats than any employee according to the site leaderboard (609 times). If you recall, Jay returned to the agency in July after a stint at CP+B. Obviously, the man was missed.

Meanwhile, Mullen is using Google Maps’ API to create “Snowify.Me,” a website that adds snow to any location. From the location, users can add a variety of holiday decorations that change size according to distance (including the Royal Couple and Occupy Wall Street-ers). Pictured above, you’ll find MediaBistro’s NYC offices (link here). If only it was actually this festive in real life. Applause to GSD&M and Mullen for the gift of seasonally appropriate weather.
