NYC Shop Conversation Returns with Biz Markie Homage…of Sorts

It’s been a couple of months since we’ve heard from The Pitch winners at New York-based agency, Conversation, though that last, er, conversation left us scratching our heads. But alas, the agency has once again appeared in our radar with this video that seems to promote the concept of being “buddies” Most of you will remember the soundtrack, though Biz Markie’s rhymes get replaced with a duo who works on the client services side at Convo. Considering the original source material, “Just a Friend” seems a little out of context, but we get the gist of things…we think. Still, the folks there would’ve been better off by just hiring this guy to handle vocal duties.
