Pony Makes a Play for Draftfcb’s Next Mascot

In case you needed a fill of Friday filler, look no further than this: Draftfcb’s Chicago office (which is celebrating the weekend by picking up some new biz, we imagine) is holding an all-agency competition that “encourages employees to submit ideas that drive agency culture.” One employee, whose name is yet to be determined, came up with the idea of a pony (we would go with bull, bronco, Tebow, etc. maybe) and as you can see above, a 55o lb. little one named “Patti Cakes” was wheeled into the branch. From what we’ve been told, this particular mascot idea is “short-lived.” Damn, we were really rooting for you, Patti, but once her time comes to an end, the top five idea generators are going to each nab $1,000 during an announce at an all-agency meeting later this month. What ideas do you suggest for a Draftfcb mascot?
