Business Insider is kind enough to rank this here site as number one in their list of the world's most influential advertising blogs. (To be fair, it's not clear that the list is ranked with any intended hierarchy, but we are named first out of 22.)

They say:

Wieden + Kennedy London's parent office was the Cannes Lions' agency of the year. This blog takes you inside their London outpost: their campaigns, their flasks, and their British cupcakes honoring July 4th. There are a lot of agency blogs. Most are self-serving and rarely updated, this is an exception.

Thanks, Business Insider.

W+K Shanghai's Rib Campbell also makes the list with his blog The Musings of an Opinionated Sod. He comments:

So I’ve just found out that Business Insider – an organisation that I previously always assumed was smart and insightful – have put this blog in their article Meet the 22 Most Influential Advertising Bloggers.

I know … I know … saying any 42 year old, Birkenstock-wearing Queen fan is anything other than tragic, is utter madness.

That said, as much as I’d like to act all casual about it, I feel ridiculously chuffed about it – mainly because I know I shouldn’t be there and I feel I’ve just bagged a night with a young Angelina Jolie who has mistaken me for some big shot movie producer.

  1. It’s in bloody reverse order of importance… That’s why AdScam is number TWENTY, outranking your wanker in China, and even Steve Hall who just does tits & arse. It also means you guys are fucking LAST… Sorry Neil. Nothing personal, but I am older than you. Happy B’day anyway.
    Cheers/George “AdScam” Parker

  2. Neil…
    Reminds me of when I was working at B&B New York, back in the sixties… Before you were born. I wrote my Mum in Manchester to tell her they had made me a Vice President. She wrote back to say how proud she was that I was now the NUMBER TWO MAN in the company. Didn’t have the heart to tell her there were 500 VP’s and they gave you that instead of a raise. Anyway… I’ve outlived the agency. So fuck ’em.
