PAYDAY bars are salty on the outside and sweet on the inside. We brought this truth to life with the juxtaposition of salty yelling paired with the sweetest words.
The saltiest people in the saltiest situations yelling nothing but sweet nothings. That’s salty covered sweetness. PAYDAY!
THE (GLASS) ELEVATOR PITCH
The iconic Apple Store on Fifth Avenue is closed for renovations, so we found a doppelgänger location to host the launch of the latest iPhone. It just so happened to be a Subway station elevator. That suspiciously looked like the famous glass Apple Store cube.
To help bring this to life, we brought our idea to the stunt based comedy group Improv Everywhere and got 50+ actors to form a really long line outside of the elevator, mimicking a huge iPhone release.

The best way to wrap up a meal is to unwrap a York.
When you're stuck in an awkward dinner conversation or at a meal that just won't end, reach for a York. Its smooth dark chocolate and refreshing peppermint cleanse your palette to close out the meal and the moment.
The Sprite NBA Slam Dunk Contest is the perfect marriage of sport and creativity. This year we elevated the art of the dunk when Futura, the godfather of the graffiti movement, turned the basketballs used over the course of All-Star weekend into art, adding another layer of creativity to the contest.
After All-Star weekend, the original works of art were signed by the dunkers and auctioned on NBA.com for charity.
A Futura mini-documentary introduced the artist and the basketball art project.
In an attempt to fulfill a lifelong goal of meeting Jim Carrey and the Farrelly Brothers, I collaborated with the Head Designer of A-list fashion label Haute Hippie to create "Dumbure Couture."
One day after tweeting a pic of the the hand-stitched "Dumb and Dumber" inspired dresses, the Farrelly Brothers personally invited us to the premiere of "Dumb and Dumber To" in LA. All expenses paid by Universal Pictures.

My sister and I are huge fans of the Showtime series Homeland. So naturally, we created a line of Valentine's Day cards that somehow made their way to the Homeland writer's room. Someone from the show actually cut them out and gave one to Claire Danes. The Internet is magic.
We also created a line of Westworld themed Valentine's Day cards, retweeted by real-life Dolores, Evan Rachael Wood.
Facebook application we created at Y&R New York for Valentine’s Day. It helps Facebook users determine their #1 digital admirer.
We teamed up with the world's oldest working mime, Richmond Shepard, to put a modern twist on the traditional routine by having him interact with technology & NYC.

I've been the author behind Taco Bell's hot sauce packets for the last 3 years. This may be my life's greatest accomplishment. Here's a small sampling.
Sometimes I art.
Little stunt filmed outside of Internet Week in NYC where we tried to sell knockoff Google Glass.
Westworld in the real world at Disneyworld.
We snuck in the most magical place on earth dressed as Westworld's Dolores and the Man in Black to pull off this stunt. Shot using GoPros and iPhones.
Sometimes I make videos and things get weird.
