Doner AD Offers Play-by-Play Recollection of Delivering Wife’s Baby in Volvo

Yep, you read that correctly, folks. A tipster sent us a nice note this morning announcing telling us that not only had his colleague Chris Taylor, a senior art director and 16-year vet at Doner, had a baby on Sunday but he delivered it himself and offered a transcript of how it all went down after the fact. Apparently, a pic of the actual newborn named Finn is on the way as well (Update: see left..aww), but in the meantime, here’s a little play-by-play from Taylor himself. Can’t say we don’t like these little feel-good asides from time-to-time:

“6:20 a.m. KELLI: Get up.
6:23 CHRIS (CALLING MOTHER IN-LAW): I think we’re gonna head to the hospital.
6:23 CHERYL (TO CHRIS): I’m on my way.
6:34 KELLI: @#$*@#!!! We gotta go.
CHRIS SENSING SERIOUS PANIC, RUNS NEXT DOOR AND POUNDS ON NEIGHBORS DOOR.
6:40 CHRIS (TO NEIGHBOR): Can you come over and watch Sutton RIGHT NOW!?
6:40 NEIGHBOR (WIDE EYED): Yeah.
6:41 DRIVING VERY FAST YET CAREFUL WHILE TALKING TO HOSPITAL ON PHONE.
6:42 KELLI: @#$*@#!!! I feel like I need to push.
6:42 CHRIS: Where’s a cop when you need one?!
6:45 KELLI: I’m not going to make it. PULL OVER.
6:45 CHRIS IGNORING REQUEST BECAUSE THAT’S JUST THE PAIN TALKING, PUSH’S THE STATION WAGON TO MAX ACCELERATION ON I-275.
6:46 KELLI: My water broke, PULL OVER!!! IT’S COMING. AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! OMG THE HEAD IS OUT.
6:46 CHRIS NOTCES THAT A THIRD PASSENGER WANTS A BETTER VIEW OUT THE FRONT WINDOW. REALIZES THAT IT WASN’T JUST THE PAIN TALKING AND PULLS OVER. DIALS 911
6:50 DELIVERS BABY ON THE FRONT SEAT LIKE A CHAMP.
7:10 WALK INTO HOSPITAL TO A STANDING OVATION.
7:11 DOC/NURSE: You want to be on the news?
7:11 KEL: Nooo!
7:12 NURSE: How are you?
7:12 CHRIS: I can’t believe it’s a boy!

SUMMARY:
At 6:20 I was lying in bed.
At 6:50 I had delivered a child on the front seat of my car on I-275.

That stretch of highway and my volvo will never look the same to me. Gotta thank North Face for keeping my son warm. The jacket is toast, but best spontaneous newborn blanket ever. Very thankful and full of love. My wife is the strongest woman I’ve ever met. And something tells me that our new son shares her determination!”

LBi Nabs Xperia, Peroni, Grolsch Digital Biz

Well, guess you can call it a hat trick. LBi has not only landed the global digital account for Sony Ericsson’s Xperia handsets, but the agency has also earned global digital AOR status for SABMiller’s  Peroni Nastro Azzurro and Grolsch brands following a “competitive pitch.”

The full-service brief for the latter two brands calls for LBi to handle online content creation and distribution, social media strategy, mobile app development, and online advertising among other things. In a statement, SABMiller’s group global brands director Chris Taylor says, “We were impressed by the way in which LBi combines insight and creativity with technological expertise to produce blended ideas and campaigns which have genuine cut-through.”

Nokia Defines Success with World Traveling, Mild Male Nudity

Success comes in many packages. Whether it’s using your smartphone to navigate from a city to a pile of rocks or watching your naked buddy jump face-first into a snowdrift, success is measured through the eyes of an individual. And, cell phones are basically tiny laptops these days, this independent, “mobile individual” is the persona advertisers are increasingly trying to target.

Such is the case with W+K’s newest campaign for the Nokia E7 Smartphone, which will include TV, print, digital and mobile apps. These days, the mobile-savvy individual can define success as being “no typos” or “a meme” and actually mean it. Nokia’s tagline, “Connecting People,” means using your smartphone to watch a movie with friends or using a Hong Kong ferry as a makeshift office. Saying something like “Success has friends not contacts” might seem a little silly or disingenuous to more jaded individuals, but to today’s average mobile consumer, it actually has meaning. How weird is that? Credits after the jump.
