Wonderful Trapsmastime

Over the years, Sonic Union has picked up a few holiday traditions:
• Throw a party! Twas all about Zoom n' brews this year.
• Put our spin on a holiday classic! Getting closer and closer to 'Full Album' territory.
• Give, give and give! Our hearts went out to Food Bank For New York City, Citymeals on Wheels, City Harvest and Feeding America. Please join us in supporting them!
For a year filled with social distance, somehow we've never felt closer to our colleagues and clients. We couldn't have done it without you. Wishing you a safe and happy holiday!

Cleveland woman discusses mental health advice for teens in new national podcast

With schools operating remotely across the country, kids have been experiencing social isolation, stress and anxiety like never before. We Got You, a new podcast created and produced by our ECP Halle Petro, helps kids aged 9-13 get their hard questions answered by older teens who have already faced such obstacles. We’re proud to share this week’s episode of Jayla, an 18 year old from Cleveland and the Boys and Girls Club 2020 Youth Award Winner. Jayla shares her experiences with anxiety and sexual abuse as a child, and shows how she got through it.

The podcast is also produced by Highland Heights native Halle Petro.

A Dog Gets to Enjoy Microsoft's Gaming Worlds in Cute Holiday Ad

No judging when we say find your joy wherever you can this year! For Rufus, the family pup, it's an 8k hi-def Microsoft dreamworld of Minecraft's Dogtopia and their other legendary games.

McCann New York takes us through this cute story while Rock Paper Scissors NYC adds their magic touch; and JSM Music scores a heartwarming piece that leads us into Supergrass' 'Alright!'

Michael Marinelli loved working with the team on sound design and mix!

New York Lottery - "All Aboard"

The artist Vi Luong and Hornet really captured New York's majesty in the latest New York Lottery campaign, "All Aboard." Each vignette shows off some of the state's most recognizable destinations, complete with Vernon Duke’s classic jazz tune, “Autumn in New York."

Steve Rosen, Paul Weiss, Fernando Ascani, Justine Cortale and Nathanael Taylor had a great ride with the McCann, Hornet + Human team!

March for Our Lives - "Youth Activism - Gun Violence"

"Gun violence isn't just going to stop until there's a force fighting harder against it."

Parkland Survivor Emma Gonzalez narrated this moving call to action against gun violence, which aired during last night's Democratic National Convention.

Together with SS+K, Rock Paper Scissors & March For Our Lives.

Campaign Zero - "Why?"

Finding answers is at the heart of activism; asking the right questions is where we start.

Campaign Zero created the #NixThe6 initiative reviewing police union contracts in nearly 600 cities - then asked WHY?

Instead of Canceling a Party-Themed Ad, Smirnoff Reframed It

Plans Change. While this Smirnoff campaign was originally shot to be an epic summer party, the smart creatives at 72andSunny switched gears and urged everyone to #HangOutFromHome instead. We were thrilled to be a part of this project and are thankful to work with such a great team at 72andSunny NY and Cosmo Street Editorial. How are you hanging out from home?

The Diageo-owned alcohol brand revamped its plans due to Covid-19.

Bud Light

Happy Draft Day! Bud Light and Wieden+Kennedy teamed up to keep the #BooTheCommish tradition alive for the #NFLDraft. Fans across the country submitted videos of themselves booing the NFL Commissioner and helped make the spot come to life!

Use the hashtag #BooTheCommish during the draft and Bud Light will make a donation to the NFL Draft-a-thon in support of Covid-19 relief.

Thanks to your boos, a tradition remains at the #NFLDraft this year. Remember to continue to use #BooTheCommish during the Draft, and Bud Light Seltzer will give $1 to NFL Draft-a-Thon up to $500K through April 25th.
