NBA/ESPN Project wrap-up

All these ads are finishing up their run over the next few weeks. Below, how they looked with the type. The map will be coming from the agency soon. Hoping the billboard stays up for another fortnight.

A prize for the first person to name all the likenesses in these three ads inside the comments section.

I know someone already answered, but I figured I'd try it before I saw their answers. Great likenesses!

I think what you are doing is shameless. What's on the line? Washer/Dryer

Andi said...

I've checked with the management & have been informed that he does not know what's on the line.

However, if you're gunning for our washer/dryer, you're welcome to it. Be warned, it walks across the floor during the spin cycle and will rip your delicates to shreds.

My favorite detail: "TRVLN"-- a subtle hint that NBA refs too often let this go?

I'm just curious what the prize was.

Within context, what is the loosest definition of "prize" available? ex- a spirit of accomplishment, an ipod, etc.

To Paulsen:

I'd like to give you a prize for correctly answering the question. Will you email me? Or post your email here... thanks. Great work. You posted those names about 20 minutes after it went up.

Can I get a ribbon for participating?
