Here’s the latest from West Coast “Deep Throats.“ Most of the Irvine office is gone, about 60 people or so, with the exception of 10-15 people they're moving to LA to work on door hangers, menu cards, toilet paper dispensers and to try to drum up new business. This from current employees, who said yes, they did actually lose the account. DFCB's quote on AgencySpy says "Any suggestion that Draft/FCB’s West Coast operation is no longer working with Taco Bell is wrong.” As a commenter there pointed out, this is very different from being agency of record. They may still have a few wanky little below the line projects officially, but that's it. They are no longer the AOR. You heard it here on AdScam… Have I ever been fucking wrong?
Draft/FCB management is now in hibernation mode!
