In news we missed last week, Ogilvy & Mather signed creative veteran Keith Anderson as ECD/Head of Art in its New York office.

Anderson brings a particularly extensive resume to his new role: he previously led creative for BlackBerry at AMV BBDO. Prior to his stint at that shop, Anderson spent nearly two full decades at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, rising to the level of associate partner/director of design and–according to the press release–playing a crucial role in the agency’s transition into the digital age.

Following his New York move, Anderson will handle IBM, BlackRock and new business while reporting to Ogilvy North America CCO Steve Simpson.

Adobe Acts with Reason, Saves $4 Million

Unless you’re an old billionaire looking for a trophy wife, four million dollars for thirty seconds of action might not be such a great investment. Adobe and Goodby, Silverstein and Partners want us to think about fiscal responsibility while we watch a monkey and a horse discuss the benefits of web marketing in their online ad “Adobe Animals.”

The post-Super Bowl spot is one of those meta-commercials that’s about commercials. It’s a clever idea and could’ve been so much more impactful if the writers didn’t settle on monkey fart noises. Adobe was wise not to empty their wallets for prime airtime, because this forgettable spot would’ve been met with head shakes and scoffs.

When God is done making farmers, he can spend some time outlawing talking animals. Credits after the jump.
