Nike Goes Home

Ad Age credits George Parker’s Adscam with the scoop.

One of my many talented spies around the world informs me that the “frat boys” at CP+B just lost their piece of Nike. Seems that the folks at Beaverton were none too happy with the CP+B Boulder outpost. Maybe the dudes spent too much time boarding and biking and not enough time doing Weiden quality work.

Or this: Nike’s account somewhere other than W+K just doesn’t compute. The two companies share DNA.
