One of my favorite network television shows over the course of nearly 2 years now has been none other than NBC’s The Blacklist. Starring the witty James Spader as Raymond Reddington, Megan Boone as Elizabeth Keen, and Ryan Eggold as Tom Keen, The Blacklist has kept me hooked with a strong and mysterious storyline, suspensful action sequences and a budding relationship (platonic) between protagonist and antagonist.
Semi-spoilers to follow.
For almost a century, General Electric (GE) has been a client of BBDO, the “second largest global advertising network” and “most awarded advertising agency.” Now, I haven’t been around for a century, but if there’s been one company/agency pairing that has caught my eye recently, it’s GE and BBDO.
Let’s put it this way. GE and BBDO make magic together. The way they turn the image of a company that dwells in the midst of a sort of dull and under-appreciated industry, into this awe-inspiring, imaginative “being” for lack of a better word, is truly impressive to me. Recent t.v. spots such as Ideas are Scary and Childlike Imagination – both part of their “Imagination at Work” campaign – and others such as The Boy That Beeps, do such a good job conveying a message of inspiration and innovation that personally, it doesn’t matter what they do/make – I just want to work with them and be a part of something bigger.
