Iris poster power is music to the ears

Tieing up the MCCA Agency of the Year Award by the end of June has seemingly gone to the heads of the management at Iris. In celebration of the award, the agency decided to rub it in the noses of as many people as possible, and what better way to do that than putting up a 96-sheet poster directly opposite rival McCann Erickson’s Southwark offices?

The poster advertises a CD entitled Thank You for the Music, which comes with the, ahem, cleverly altered lyrics “Thank you for the clients, the briefs they’re giving” and contains work created by Iris. Sadly, if anyone at McCann is thinking of getting their own back on Iris, they should note that there are no poster sites near its new offices in Park Street.
