Minneapolis Takes on New York Ad World


By the minneapolis egotist / /

Advertising Week is taking place in NYC this week. Each year, the governor of NY and the mayor of NYC welcome attendees with official letters of praise for their state and city in the event’s program. This year, they’ve got competition from another world-class ad community.

Colle McVoy created an ad for the program that calls attention to the greatest city in the north, Minneapolis. Through humorous and clever copywriting that parodies the official government letters, the ad extols why advertising’s best and brightest should work in Minneapolis, while also promoting one of its greatest agencies, Colle McVoy.

    If you want people from New York, open a NY office. Or hire people who are already here…the ones who don’t need convincing. Plenty of great local creatives who get ignored because they’re local. Best part? We don’t ask for relocation costs or make fun of your accent.
