BBO summer mix: Buenas Lomas

Let’s holiday! Do not, and we repeat, do not go off on your summer holidays without following the funky-flavoured, sun-kissed Spotify playlist that we created just for you. And for ourselves, because this is what each of us will be playing on repeat as we sip rosé, muck around our summer cabins and count the hours until we’re allowed back in the office.

So, man behind the music and best trainee in the world Jori (or ”Jorge”, if you’ve ever been lucky enough to see his best dance moves), what’s in the mix?

”Brazilian boogie and cheesy, horn-filled Latin loving to get your shoulders relaxed and hips oiled. Syrup-covered Italo and illegal Suomi Disco to release guilty pleasures. Rhytmic afro-disco and some true grooves to get you going. Enjoy responsibly!”

Roger. Move us, Jorge.
Buenas lomas!

P.S. BBO is open for business through summer. Pop in to say hello, there’s ice cream in the freezer!

The ad agency treasure hunt

Are you wondering if you’ve perhaps stumbled into an advertising agency? No worries, let this handy treasure hunt help you figure it out. If you can find more than five of the following, yes – you must be at an ad agency. Alternatively, andif you definitely already know you’re at an advertising agency, use as a fast and deadly drinking game.

1. People still printing stuff instead of doing that paperless office thing
2. A Pantone swatch set
3. Apple-branded things
4. Hard liquor
5. Soft liquor
6. Brand merchandise and/or blow-outs of promotional materials
7. At least one book with the word ”creative” or ”creativity” in the title
8. A person sporting glasses, Birkenstocks, facial hair or colourful shoes
9. A Wacom tablet
10. A bright-hued interior design element
11. Somebody saying ”print pdf”, ”brand guide” or ”f*ck”.
12. A hysterical fit of laughter
13. A person clearly strung out on coffee
14. Glossy magazines
15. Random objects completely unrelated to work

We grow wieners

Chances are, you know exactly what your brand needs to be eating. In fact, you know exactly what your brand is. All organic, allergy-tested – a good-for-you balanced meal, wrapped up in a pretty portion of nutritional recommendations. It’s not about the size of the wiener, you say.

But in the middle of the night all you really really want is a big fat hot dog.

We say, put the special sauce on it. We say, get the condiments and stuff your face with that tasty delight. Give in to that craving. Because we grow wieners.

See you at Snägäri.

Target demographic

Hey. You don’t know who I am, but I know you who you are. I think about you all the time. I hope you don’t find this intrusive, but I thought about what you did first thing in the morning today. What you wore, what made you smile, how you liked your coffee and your social media feed. I imagined how you drove your bike to work, how you stopped by that newsstand you like, how by lunchtime you were craving that favourite snack of yours. I know your real age and I’m OK with it. You’re beautiful the way you are. Listen, I just want to talk to you. Just one meaningful conversation – I won’t takeup too much of your time. I forgive you for that ad-block, even the changes youmade to your privacy settings. You are everything to me. I love you.
