Shocker, Part 17: W+K Wins the Webbys

To really no one’s surprise, the Webby Awards has awarded multiple top honors to Wieden + Kennedy for its Old Spice social media efforts including the Webby and the People’s Voice Award. W+K also won Agency of the Year and nabbed the most noms and wins across all categories. Is this a portent of doom for the rest of the nominees in the various ad award shows coming up? Yes, perhaps.

Anyhow, we know you’ve seen the Old Spice shenanigans before, so why not salute something else, namely the People’s Voice choice for Best Viral Video, which happens to be the “Bed Intruder Song” starring Antoine Dodson (above). Funny of Die nabbed the most wins in multiple categories (eight), W+K nabbed four and other Webby honorees included Justin Bieber (really), Arcade Fire for the Wilderness Downtown and Conan O’Brien for Team Coco. Check out the full list of winners here. The Webby Awards will officially take place on June 13 at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC.
