Merry Xmas everybody, especially to those of you who are preparing pitches over the holiday

It never stops really and clients (the dear loves) take such enjoyment from calling pitches over the holiday season. Household products giant SC Johnson wins this year’s prize for the latest call.

Anyway, have a good holiday, thanks for reading and we’ll still be here while our much more hard-working colleagues are taking the next week or so off.

Here’s a bit of the late, lamented Captain Beefheart, playing in Cannes (you can see the Carlton in the distance) to see you through the next few days.

Actually this one’s a bit more slick.

But we like to think all creatives are like him, crazy control freaks with a chip on both shoulders.

Have a very happy holiday and see you soon.
