The 10-year-old takeover

October 29, 2012 by Big Orange Slide

It’s been said that advertising is a young person’s game — but just how young? To celebrate our 10th birthday, Grip brought some other 10-year olds into our agency to work on real clients. No rules, no limits, just imagination. The result? This video, and a hearty reminder that our jobs aren’t safe for long.

With that, Grip presents: The 10-Year-Old Takeover.
