Every year at this time we hear David Stern give the roll call of the finest basketball talent in the world and which teams have the right to sign them first for next season in the NBA. This year, the Trailblazers hit paydirt with the first pick. They chose a 7′ 0″ tall Greg Oden from Ohio State University. Blazer fans are thrilled with this news and the city of Portland is rolling out the red carpet for it’s newest celebrity. The first person we want to greet Greg when he gets to town is none other than Don Coe.
If you have ever been to Wieden+Kennedy after regular business hours you will recognize Don. Don makes sure that the building is safe and will walk the ladies to their cars if need be. Today this ad is on the back page of the Oregonian. Thanks for picking him up Don. Be sure to give him a few pointers about how to be a class act.
We have a roll call of our own. These are the players who make ads like this happen overnight.
