Just when you thought nothing interesting was going to come of the World Cup following that gut-wrenching tie against Portugal, we have a notable player accused of mastication.

BBDO Scores More Beer

bud_light_lime_largeAnd now for some more BBDO news: the agency’s ongoing relationship with Anheuser-Busch got a bit fruitier today as its Chicago office won the Bud Light Lime account from Steve Stoute’s Translation.

This move comes less than a year after Bud Light made the same switch; Energy BBDO will run the account.

From AB’s official statement:

“…we are moving Bud Light extensions work to BBDO now to gain synergies.”

And yes, “Translation continues to be a valued creative partner and collaborator on our successful Budweiser Made in America program.”

Just not in Chicago.
