Our own Juliana was there to accept the Emmy on behalf of W+K. Here’s what she had to say…

Excruciating describes waiting for the “Outstanding Commercial” category to be called when it’s the primary category you came to hear. It took 4 hours of the Creative Arts Emmy Ceremony on Sept 12th to get to that category and of that – I needed to use the restroom for a good 3 hours of it. So – when the fateful moment came for the “Outstanding Commercial” announcement – I spent 3-5 seconds processing that Jaime-Lynn Sigler and Jerry Ferrera (“Turtle” from Entourage), just announced “And the Emmy goes to – Coca-Cola ‘Heist’” all I could think to do is walk briskly, remember everyone’s name, don’t trip up the stairs, reach out and accept that gorgeous award!

    This commercial is a work of art. But then, I would expect nothing less from my Spelman sister Juliana. Often, I view commercials as an annoying intrusion, however, this vivid, ingeniously orchestrated masterpiece left me wanting to see more. Congrats to you and your team of geniuses.

    There’s a magic in this project that’s so delicate on the heavily saturated modern minds of the consumer. Ahhhh the refreshing taste of coke.
