W+K NY Employs Charlie Murphy, Kobe, LeBron

Weiden + Kennedy’s shared two of their latest spots. The first includes Charlie Murphy who plays Leroy Smith, the guy who apparently beat Michael Jordan for the last spot on their high school basketball team, thereby creating the initial motivation for Jordan’s entire career.

The second, posted after the jump, is the latest in the Most Valuable Puppets series. We love puppets. Maybe they’ll agree to come on The Week in Advertising sometime.

Note: We rarely hear dirt on W+K, which is presumably because employees there are happy. That’s probably mostly true since they do some cool stuff and they have a fairly decent radio station and blog and just feel plugged in. Well, until now that is. We’ve been sent some interesting info about the agency that we’re working to confirm. Let us know if you can help us out. (E-mail agencyspy at mediabistro dot com).
