As a rule, I don't talk about O2 here, but...



As a rule, I don't write about O2 here. I keep my personal blog separate from my work. We all know how boring it can be listening to people talk about themselves and their own stuff all the time.

But I'd like to break this rule just for today.

Today we launch our latest tv campaign. It's about priority tickets at The O2. I really like this ad and want to thank and congratulate, the very talented, Emer McCarthy, for this spot. (Please nobody try and poach her).

The ad itself is very simple and beautifully executed. It was directed by Nima Nourizadeh, the man behind the wonderful House Party adidas ad. The haunting voice you hear is that of Florence Welch, of Florence and the Machine.

Excellent. Will she make an ad for us do you think?

Falling outside the target market, regrettably, but that wicked tune drags me right back into the arena. Well made, simply executed and capturing some bloody thing, whatever it is. Little bit of magic.

You taught me everything I know. And in return I berate your manbag... it's a lesson for life.

Well you have been going on for long enough about this ad, finally got to see it.

It is as good as you say it is. Damn!

Emer you are right to berate Paul, not just for a man-bag but for many things!

Conor, Nick, Lisa - glad you like it. Emer, well done again although neither of your points have any truth in them...
