Caution: Movember can be addictive

Posted by Tom Megginson | 22-11-2011 17:06 | Category: Health

Two years ago, I was introduced to Movember by friends at McMillan, a rival Ottawa agency. I grew a ‘stache too, that year, but those guys really took it over the top, producing their own charity pin-up calendar and generally having a blast with it.

This year, they created a campy PSA about how one of their Creative Directors, Jared Young, became addicted to his Movember moustache in 2009. It has since become an obsession.

Self-produced by the agency, it sports the McMillan guys’ love of vintage irony. Nice work!
