What are you doing? is a question that might have been asked of Omnicom Group's Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, San Francisco, when they decided to taunt sibling shop DDB Worldwide, Chicago, over its successful Anheuser-Busch Cos.' Budweiser "Whassup?" campaign. But Brett, Ian and Chad go through their preppy paces asking "What are you doing?" as they sip imported beer in their upscale version of the original spots. The kicker: a shot of two of the original African American "Whassup" actors astounded by the wannabes, and a parody that doubles the life of the original.
