Hank to dry creatives' tears

Hank - 'Demo Love'
Hank - 'Demo Love'
Like Samson and his hair, remove the scratch track the creative director has become attached to and he is rendered powerless. That's the message Taxi New York is trying to get across for Hank, a new service from Ten Music that promises to help you find that perfect match among its catalog of indy artists. Over two dozen of advertising's finest appear in the music video, a short ditty on the affliction and its crippling side effects shot by The Center for Egalitarian Studies with music from the Rondo Brothers.

But can they act? Of course. Euro's Jeff Kling hangs his head like his wife made him tear down the miniramp in his backyard, and Anomaly's Mike Byrne gets misty eyed like someone mutilated a vintage pair of Nikes.
