The Impossible Brief

BMW USA recently fired long time agency Fallon and called a pitch for its account. They kicked themselves a 2nd time when they disqualified the creative geniuses at Crispin Porter & Bogusky as they didnt want the same agency which handles MINI to do BMW.

Now, news of their impossible brief in their RFQ has leaked out, and there’s a funny repartee here from Jaffe Juice.

“Reach a broader, more diverse audience” with roughly half of last year’s budget. Where have we all heard that before?

The final 4 agencies in the BMW USA pitch is out, and some surprises. None of the traditional big boys are in … Wieden & Kennedy, Red Cell & Publicis were all eliminated in rd 1, although a couple of giants are still in.

Who’s in - GSD&M, the biggest agency in the final 4; Kirschenbaum & Bond, an agency that’s always done unique work; Martin Agency and the biggest surprise, Anomaly from NY, which is only a few months old.
