JWT Rocks it ’til 8:30 in the Evenin’


Last night we took one for the proletariat and attended JWT NY’s Halloween party/costume contest. Just, you know, to see what it would be like. Admittedly, it felt strange at first, and a little bit dirty, to be standing face to face with the folks we write about. But they were cool about mingling with the frenemy, and even gave us a front row spot for the contest. And beer. And a few drinks.

In the end, the Chinese food delivery guy won, with Roseanne taking second and the wench winning third. Prizes included cash ($200 for the winner, and smaller amounts for the others) and, lost pride.

Happily, we avoided drowning in the Kool-aid, and managed to make some connections with the folks there. So, thanks for letting us in JWT (specifically Erin Johnson, vp communications)…ps we’re free for holiday parties, too!

Click continued to see a video and a bunch of photos.
