CP+B not having it their way with BKC
Yes, that’s official folks… Burger King Corp. and Crispin Porter + Bogusky part way. 7 years. Time really flies. The “subservient chicken” seems like yesterday (or a cyber century ago). Can’t believe they have given us all these great campaigns in this time. My heart still falls for “Little Kick chicken”, “Whopperettes”, “Eat Like Snake”, “Little Hands”, “They are so cute”, “Eat like Man”, and not forgetting unforgettable stunts like “Whopper Freakout” or “Whopper Sacrifice”. I definitely could have done without the revival of the creepy King though.
There’s really nothing to add on CP+B. They are one of best agencies and everybody knows that. As for BKC, it is always great to see a client who has the intelligence to recognize great work and the balls to run with it. It did not always work but overall it’s been a blazing success. A lot of clients in the region could take lessons from these guys. Can’t wait to see what they do next…will be a tough act to follow.
