DFCB Builds Up Senior Exec Team in SF

Three months after last hearing from Draftfcb’s San Francisco office, the agency has some positive news to report as it’s brought on GS&P alum Jon Drawbaugh and former CP+B senior interactive producer/AmEx account lead Donald Tench IV, aka “IV Tench” (pictured). Drawbaugh joins up with DFCB SF as SVP, director of integrated production while IV as he’s known has signed on as VP, director of interactive at the agency.

Drawbaugh spent seven years in all at Goodby prior to joining the Draft camp, last serving as senior content producer for past and present clients ranging from Chevrolet and Sprint to Dickies (example here), AIDES, Comcast and Tostitos. IV Tench (kinda rolls off the tongue, no?), meanwhile, spent two-and-a-half years at CP+B. Prior to toiling in Boulder, the producer spent three years at Digitas on the tech side.

It doesn’t even look like Smutley asks for consent most of the time, but somehow he roams the streets free from police.

Of course, Smutley is fictional, and unsafe sex is exactly what this spot from AIDES, the French association tackling HIV and AIDS, and the creative folks at Goodby are trying to fight against. Goodby partnered with multiple illustrators and animators for the above online spot, which definitely would not fly on U.S. broadcast television. This isn’t the first time AIDES used a somewhat shocking campaign. If you recall, just last year, AIDES and TBWA Paris released a spot titled “Graffiti” which featured a cartoon penis chasing around bathroom stall sketches of women and vaginas. Truly, Europe’s sense of sexual humor is bit different than what we consider appropriate for PSAs here in the States.

AIDES’ YouTube page states that the organization’s challenge with the spot was to “de-dramatize the somewhat embarrassing, if not plain awkward, moment when ‘rubber protection’ needs to be discussed.” Well, perverted anthropomorphic cartoons cats everywhere may have found their calling and a use for their nine lives.
