Here’s Taxi’s ‘Strategy’ 2013 Agency of the Year Entry

Now that we’ve received entries from both Lowe Roche and john st., the latter of which has already claimed to have won the Best Agency Video prize at the 2013 Strategy AOY Awards, why not see what else came into play at this year’s event. Above, we have fellow Toronto-based agency Taxi’s submission for the Strategy AOYs, which shows a hapless soul taking ad award obsession to a, well, more fashion-conscious level. We wonder whose actual Cannes Lions they used in the clip, though we’re anxious to see how “okinawin denim,” “mini-wallets” and “pilgrim aesthetics” could possibly all join as one. Where does this rank out of the three we’ve covered for you? In the meantime, you can also check out the trade’s current 2013 winners list here.
