Coming back from lunch today, I was in the elevator with a guy dressed as an apple, carrying a basket of apples.

"Umm. What floor?"

Him, the apple - "28, please."

And as the doors went to slide shut, his apple leaf head-dress got caught in between them and the leaf came off.

Later this afternoon, I found out that he was here to let us know we won the Applebee's account in the pitch against TBWA/Chiat/Day.

I guess that's what it must be like to be the lucky Applebee's intern.

Good. Maybe you can get rid of Tyler Florence in those ads now.

Hey, he at least attempted to make their food better. :p

Did you pick up the leaf?

jetpacks - keep your fingers crossed. I'm sure we'll try.

thinking in vain - yes, i did. though it was tempting to wait and watch him try to bend down and pick something off the floor while in an apple costume... i imagine the girth would have been something of a problem.

And you kept the leaf... right? ;)
