Let’s Play the Game of Agency Obfuscation

And now, we introduce your favorite new Friday game that will waste 10 minutes of your time. But, hey, that’s 10 minutes closer to the weekend, right? You’ll thank us in 10 minutes.

This diversion comes from Larissa Hayden, an engagement planner at Tribal DDB, and her co-workers. Developed during her last days at the agency (where to next?), the Agency Obfuscation Game lists 21 word riddles, where players must guess the corresponding ad agency. Por ejemplo, “Fruit Amphibian” would be StrawberryFrog. Easy, yes? Well, how about “bad thing that could happen to a car, and what you do after it,” smart guy?

Play the game here, and feel free to post your score out of 21 or add additional riddles in the comments section. See, advertising nerdery can be fun!
