We Hear: BBDO’s Baker Leaving for Google?

If the name Chris Baker doesn’t ring a bell, he’s the BBDO NY copywriter who was one of the masterminds behind the amusing “M. Night School” as well as last fall’s “Letterbombing” effort among several other projects. Well, according to sources familiar with the matter, Baker is leaving BBDO for a gig at Google. So, we pinged the seemingly press-shy creative, who wouldn’t comment beyond a simple “Yeah” when asked if his move to Motorola Mobility’s new parent is true (forget about asking for exact job/title at this point). We’ve also reached out for official confirmation from BBDO, and of course we’ll let you know what the agency says if/when we hear back.
