Could the New Myspace Really Be Cool? We’re Almost Convinced

I’m sitting in Salt Lake City Airport, shocked at the number of people wearing flip flops, and I want nothing more than to be in Myspace’s fun room of young, beautiful artists grabbing at one another amidst fluorescent confetti. Their instruments and skateboards may be breakable but they are not. They smash faces and tangle limbs and fall on the floor, but this video gives us the sense that these fiery singers, models, DJs, and rappers will never flame out.

After Justin Timberlake’s reboot, can the same be said for Myspace (capital S begone)? We weren’t sure the social network could drag itself away from obsolescence, but this spot seems to be doing just that, and with a bang. If Myspace is a room filled with the likes of DIIV, Iggy Azalea, Pharrell Williams, Sky Ferreira and Schoolboy Q, then it is anything but irrelevant. If you don’t know those names, you better learn them. And check out the new Myspace while you’re at it; it seems to be the cool thing to do.

Credits and MySpace announce note after the jump.

Martin Agency Announces ‘Creative Restructuring’

Now that he’s officially taken his CCO post at The Martin Agency, it looks like John Norman (right) is finally getting down to business. The Richmond, VA-based agency’s first creative lead in three decades unveiled a new group creative director tier at the agency, with veteran CDs Cliff Sorah, Joe Alexander, Steve Bassett, Delta hater Andy Azula and Nancy Hannon taking on additional responsibilities as GCDs, as will new additions Keith Cartwright and brothers Eric and Keith Tilford.

The aforementioned bros will also join forces with the agency’s studio and digital art leadership to create Design@Martin.  In a statement, Norman says, “We’re just re-assembling the parts to make it even more nimble, even more technologically forward and even more social–we’re going to work more in groups.” Along with the creative shifts, Martin Agency is also redesigning the 30,000+ square foot second floor of the agency to accommodate the new “surround the work” style.
