We had less than 24 hours to come up with a way to announce the biggest

player addition in TFC's history. Jermain Defoe was leaving England

for the victory-challenged Toronto FC.

Full slashie transparency: I did not work on the TV spot.

 

2014 CMA Awards - Gold - Advertising Consumer Services

2014 Clio Sports Awards - Silver - PR

 
TFC - Case Study

 

TFC - Double Decker Bus
 

We branded double decker buses to tease the big announcement.

TFC - Wild Postings


To announce Defoe's arrival, we placed wild postings all across Toronto.

TFC - Fake Tabloid Cover

 

The day Defoe signed with TFC, we wrapped a Metro newspaper to look like

a fake British tabloid.

Sportsnet.ca Takeover


A takeover of Sportsnet.ca ensured that sports fans wouldn't miss

soccer's biggest announcement.

Digital Board


Defoe's signing was announced on a digital board right outside of BMO Field,

visible to thousands of cars on the Gardiner Expressway.
