It appears that Grey New York president/CCO Tor Myhren made quite the impression on the folks at Mashable, who said he was perhaps “the most memorable speaker” at their Media Summit that took place on Nov. 4 at the Times Center in NYC. Why? Well, in case you missed it, like we did, Myhren apparently sealed the deal by talking about sealing the deal as the title of the video hints at. There is a point to Myhren’s amusing tale, which transports us back to 1986 and his “pseudo-punk rock” days in Denver. If you have 18 minutes to spare (it’s almost lunchtime here on the East Coast, isn’t it?) check out a story that could basically have been the prequel to Superbad.
