How CDP’s showreel was no booty

It was the day of the pitch for the Yorkshire Bank advertising account when David Gibson, the bank’s communications manager, had to dash out early because his home had been burgled.

To David’s horror he discovered the thieves had cleaned out his Leeds home, not forgetting to swipe videos made by agency hopefuls Banks Hoggins O’Shea, J Walter Thompson (Manchester) and the eventual winner Collett Dickenson Pearce, which he’d planned to watch in the privacy of his living room.

But as he was picking up the broken glass in the kitchen, what should he find tossed aside as the crooks made their getaway but CDP’s precious efforts?

‘It was bizarre,’ said David, ‘The only video they decided to dump was CDP’s. Maybe they know something about advertising I don’t.’
