Round One of ‘Young Glory’ Ad Battle is in the Books

Just though we’d give you an update on what’s happening with the “Young Glory” event, which we first covered when it launched at the beginning of October and features the tagline, “8 Months. 8 Briefs. 8 Big Name Judges.” Well folks, the results for the Professional portion are in for month one of the 30-and-under ad competition (remember, both students and pros can take part), which was judged by AKQA CCO Rei Inamoto. Apparently, Inamoto’s a hard person to please as no Gold prize was awarded for his October brief, which was “Keep the World Cool.”

Still, at least there was Silver and Bronze to be had and the prize for the former went to Robert Fraze, who’s been an art director at Deutsch New York since January. His BMW “Rash Responsibility” idea can be seen above while Francisco Chatimsky & Mafalda Quintela‘s Professional Bronze-winning work is below. Check out full Pro October results here. As we mentioned before, November’s Young Glory judge is OgilvyOne India ECD Graham Kelly.

The Manning Bros Tackle Crime-Fighting During Off-Season

Wow, look what the NFL lockout has done to our pro football stars. First teased and given the snark treatment on Deadspin weeks ago (sorry for the lag, it took us some time to get credits), here’s the full trailer for Peyton and Eli Manning, much anticipated mini-series for DirecTV called “Football Cops.” The plot synopsis: “Two former pro football players who bring their unique brand of law enforcement to one of the country’s toughest neighborhoods.”

Peyton and Eli play Mike Tahoe and C.J. Hunter, respectively, and they use footballs as weapons while wearing mustaches even Cochise would find tacky. According to Deutsch NY, which is behind this send-up that was shot in Brooklyn and promotes the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket (here’s hoping there’s use for one), the video has tallied over 750, 000 views since its launch late last week. It’s pretty damn amusing we say, so we’re not surprised. Eli Manning’s acting chops be damned, here’s hoping for more installments of this silly crime-fighting saga. For those of you really into this, there’s a site to download wallpapers, ringtones, etc., but we even have our limits. Credits after the jump.
