Copywriter Gino Click Returns with ‘Riot Rhythm’

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Gino Click, a West Coast copywriter who last year gave us everything from a Muppet/Waka Flocka mashup to dancing pandas to Heavy D tributes. Now, the seemingly quirky Click, who has freelanced at the likes of Pereira & O’Dell and Duncan/Channon and is currently doing the same at Goodness Mfg., offers what sounds like his Sleigh Bells homage. We’re not sure how his skills compare to the likes of Buckwheat Groats, but the young lad shows some swagger and even gives a little shout-out to you know who. Take a listen and follow along if you’d like.

Ring in Your Monday with a Ridiculous Muppet/Waka Flocka Mashup

Guess the freelance copywriter life has afforded Gino Click a fair amount of spare time to dabble in his ongoing series of mashups, the latest of which features a famous Muppet getting down with a bumping hip-hop score. We’re pretty sure this isn’t a viral promotion for the upcoming Muppets movie, just another silly side project from a CW who’s freelanced at Pereira & O’Dell and Hal Riney and given us dancing pandas and meshed Bin Laden with Star Wars in the past.

Once again, Click has teamed up with fellow copywriter Ashley Crandall and art director Brendan Gallogly for this effort, which for whatever reason, seems fitting for a rather delirious Monday.

Canned CW Creates Dancing Pandas Viral Vid

A San Fran copywriter, who recently laid off, is said to be the creative force behind this clip, which is essentially a music video featuring pandas dancing to the song “Teach me how to Dougie.” Entitled “Teach Me How To Panda,” the vid has reached 110,000 YouTube views in four days, so we suppose we can officially slap the viral tag on it. Who knew dancing pandas would be so appealing? Apparently, this person did. Guess that’s what happens when you suddenly have plenty of free time on your hands.

Update: As we figured, it is the work of one Gino Click, whose portfolio can be viewed here.
