Diageo – It’s ALL Greek to us. (Speaking for GrandMet and Guinness shareholders and stakeholders, everywhere).

At a purported creative cost of 250,000, we should ask ourselves: Is this an example of Destroying Instantly All Good Ever Originated in the two great businesses to be merged, or merely a Desperately Inept Attempt by the Group to Explain its Objectives?

What is clear is that the use of creative agencies most often leads one to ask: Do Inspirational Agencies Grasp Everything Obscurely?
