I know, I know. It’s Friday, which means that you’re all waiting with bated breath for ANDERSON Feature Friday. Don’t worry. I’m here to deliver. So settle in, folks!
Now you might remember our little video holiday card, which allowed our Account Coordinator, Lauren, and I to show some of our comedy-writing prowess. From the feedback we got on it, we’re fairly certain (most of) you found it funny. Thank you, by the way!
This week for Feature Friday I was more than happy to volunteer my blogging services in the name of showcasing some of the agency’s funnier moments from AC Lauren. The excellence I’m here to commend has come in the form of Lauren’s daily lunchtime emails, sent each day to remind the team to please cover the phones while she dashes out on her next mid-day adventure.
What started out as a simple “Hey guys, can you answer the phone while I run out?” has evolved into an email that most — if not all — of us look forward to every day. In short – they’re hilarious and unique. Every. Single. Day.
The ANDERSON team is packed full of some extraordinary talent, and we really believe our work is benefitted by the team’s collective sense of humor – something we hope you picked up from that holiday video, and that we’re sure you’ll see from the sampling of our daily email treats below.
Below you’ll find screen shots of some of our favorite Lauren (aka @lstreiff / Lo Lo Bird / Lo) lunchtime emails. We hope you enjoy them as much as we have.
That last email links to this gem of a music video.
Hello! Happy Friday to you all! It has been a beautiful week, I hope you’ve been enjoying the (slightly) cooler fall weather like everyone here at ANDERSON has!
