Writing this piece over in Austin at SxSW. Seen some great stuff this week from the likes of Jodie Foster, David Byrne and Brian Solis. Attended sessions on subjects inclusing the blockchain, insights, influencer marketing, video, mindfulness and ‘cannabusiness’. More info on all of this in coming weeks, but wanted to share this video shown by Brian Solis at the launch of his new book. This is the wonderful, Alike.

After nearly 16 years out of the advertising business, filmmaker Sir Ridley Scott has brought his grand vision to two high-profile ad campaigns.

Upon reaching their destination we see them and other clubbers in their pyjamas….’
