Backstreet’s Back? Alright.

August 22, 2008

Um yeah. Day winding down at work when I get a surprising email whose headline reads:

“SPECIAL PRE LABOR DAY MUSICAL TREAT HERE AT DRAFTFCB”

Ohhh, that sounds nice. I open that email up and lookie here:

So yeah, The Backstreet Boys will be rocking my work Atrium on Monday. Exciting? Sure. Baffling? More so. What inspires an advertising company to book resurgent boybands man-bands to play?

I’m also curious how much BSB charges for these little occurrences. Hmmmm.

8/22 @ 4:52 Follow-Up: A buddy I know that works down the street at Leo Burnett just mentioned they’re playing THERE on Monday too! So… DFCB is probably not paying anything. BSB, on the other hand, are prolly doing a pride-swallowing tour of Advertising Agencies to get the industry to drop them / their new tunes in commercial spots. Awwwww.
