Here’s Basically All You Need to Know About Last Night’s CLIOs

Somehow, yours truly was able to hit up three events last night (yeah, we know, it’s a hard knock life, but I’m getting old), the last being the CLIO Awards, which once again took place at the American Museum of Natural History way the hell uptown and under dreary skies in NYC. Regardless of the gloom, we felt rather uplifted from MC/plastic surgery advocate Joan Rivers and her self-deprecating humor. Despite what seemed to be laryngitis, the comedienne rallied on and made the requisite Kardashian jokes, showed off her starring spot in a BF Goodrich ad from the 1800′s and presented the Grand Clio to Volkswagen.

Please allow us to apologize for the shitty image, but then again, it was standing room only and our section was booked. Anyhow, it was heartwarming that outgoing Ogilvy & Mather chairman Shelly Lazarus spoke highly of one of her “best friends” and CLIO Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Piyush Pandey. With his brilliant Rolly Fingers-esque moustache and all, Pandey was humble even after Lazarus dubbed the 30-year O&M vet the “godfather of modern Indian advertising.” From then on, through the reels, multiple presentations, etc., we somewhat started to glaze over, so before you do, check out the full CLIO 2012 winners list here. By the way, we once again loved the Spinal Tap-ish labyrinth to get to the show, which gives us an opportunity to view taxidermy at its finest.
