Here's to the underdog brands.
Ad agencies have become too bloated for you. Their org charts are too top heavy for you. Their overhead is too large for you. Their services are too pricy for you.
Or, to put it more accurately, your budget is too small for them.
That's because you're not just paying for an idea, you are paying for every hand that touches that idea along the journey, most of them who add nothing to it.
No good idea could survive that.
So we created Whiskey Bacon Club. A way for challenger brands with challenging budgets to get efficient execution of high-level thinking for a lot less.
That's because we've reinvented the model. We've taken industry-leading business savvy creative directors and teamed them directly with a world-class production partner.
So here's to the underdogs.
Here's to five-foot, five-inch point guards and six-foot, five-inch jockeys.
Here's to opening acts, 16th seeds, and horses named Tripod.
Here's to Rudy and Hoosiers, and to the 1969 Mets and the 1980 American Hockey Team.
Here's to Buster Douglas beating Mike Tyson.
Here's to any brand that wants to get the most out of their ad and production budgets. And wants a fighting chance to succeed.
Whiskey Bacon Club is here for you.
(Why the name Whiskey Bacon Club? Is there anything whiskey and bacon can't do? Nope.)
Whiskey Bacon Club.
Half ad agency. Half production company. Half content studio.
a MEETING OF THE minds.
Whiskey Bacon Club truly is a club. A club of incredibly talented creatives who’ve all joined with the common goal of doing the kind of great work that builds brands and creates commerce. The kind of work agencies used to do before bigger mortis set in.
Led by ad veteran Kevin Sutton, we feature an impressive roster of writers and art directors, and we tap into them as each job dictates. And we team them with a world-class production partner, so we can write, cast, shoot, edit and finish your idea as well as you could get it written, cast, shot, edited or finished anywhere else. All you're paying for are killer ideas that are produced flawlessly. And not for office slides and private jets and on-site juiceologists. Welome to the Club.
KEVIN SUTTON, Executive Creative Director
As a creative director and writer, Kevin has won tons of the most prestigious industry awards for his work. He has created campaigns for McDonald's—leading the launch of McDonald's game-changing All Day Breakfast, in fact. He helped re-brand Visionworks. And Texas Health Hospitals. And Nestle Pure Life water. And Icehouse beer. His Super Bowl commercial for Tabasco was featured on ABC-TV's "World's Best Super Bowl Commercials." He's had spots featured on "America's Funniest Commercials." And he won an award from the actual United Nations for a pro-bono print campaign. He has written some really funny commercials for GEICO, hilarious spots for Western Union, and a ridiculously outrageous global warming PSA campaign for the Sierra Club.
Kevin is the author of the Amazon Top 40 Humor book, Dear Midol: Essays from Estrogen Hell, about having a wife and five daughters, as well as Baseball Town: The Fall and Rise of the Texas Rangers. He also writes the daily baseball blog, rangersrounding3rd.com.
