‘DJ Bunny Ears’ Moves on from DDB Chicago

Well, this is a name we haven’t heard in quite some time, but yes, we’ve received word that Eric Johnson–aka “DJ Bunny Ears”–has left DDB Chicago after two-and-a-half years to take on an executive producer position at Search Party Music. In his new role, which he officially assumed on July 1, Johnson is collaborating with writer/director Wes Anderson’s music supervisor of choice, Randall Poster (go here if the name doesn’t ring a bell).

Anyhow, during his time at DDB Chicago, Johnson served as executive producer of music + creative integration and worked across the agency’s client roster including McDonald’s, State Farm, Reebok and Mars/Wrigley. During his career, Johnson also served as a music supervisor for eight years at W+K and had a two-year stint as executive music producer at Y&R.

Wes Anderson Brings His ‘World’ to Sony

…And while we’re on the topic of McCann, we’ll refrain from using the word “quirky” this time around as we’ve learned our lesson after the last Wes Anderson/spot-related post. So, we’ll just tell you that the feature-film director is once again dabbling in commercials, this time for a new Sony Xperia campaign brought to you by, yes, McCann Worldgroup.

Here, an eight-year-old named Jake Ryan offers his take on the inner workings of the brand’s smartphone, which from his perspective, operates at the whims of a leader and his three tiny robots. The whimsical (wait, can we say that?) ditty channels the spirit of Willy Wonka and takes us inside the mind of a young lad, as we’ve been told the script is based verbatim on his thoughts. Kids informing major brand campaigns is all the rage these days, isn’t it? At least we give credit to the parties involved for tapping Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi to handle the music portion.

The above TV spot, which will debut this weekend, is complemented by a print campaign that’s already launched in European markets but will soon roll out globally. Credits and print asset after the jump.
