Lesson Never Learned: Jack Link’s Once Again Sullies Up to Sasquatch

It’s been almost a year since we last covered Jack Link’s and their Sasquatch antihero, but everyone’s favorite ugly creature is back to sell some beef jerky and beat up anyone who messes with him (it). Minneapolis-based agency Carmichael Lynch has produced three new spots for the campaign, all of which were once again directed by Rocky Morton.

In the above commercial – “All Dolled Up” – three fools try to get their kicks by putting makeup on Sasquatch. He responds by flipping their car and possibly killing them, because, well,  Sasquatch doesn’t wear lipstick. The ads tap into the creature’s vaguely redneck brand appeal with foggy rural settings and the fact that the product is beef jerky.

Janicki Leaves Colle+McVoy, Heading to Carmichael Lynch?

After spending five years as director of account management at Colle+McVoy, Stacy Janicki is leaving the agency to “take on a new challenge.” C+M wouldn’t comment further, but word on the Spy line is that Janicki’s “new challenge” is taking over for Andrew Dauska in the same director of account management role at Carmichael Lynch. Multiple emails to CL regarding Dauska’s status and direct calls to his extension have been left unanswered, but we’ll keep following up.

As for Janicki, the exec has made the rounds in the Minneapolis ad scene, spending nearly a decade at the likes of Martin|Williams and Campbell Mithun prior to joining Colle+McVoy.
