Movember Survey: Meet MKTG INC’s Hairiest Hero

without comments

UnknownMKTG INC’s Gregory Lorenzo & Javier Cubria

We’d like to congratulate and thank everyone who participated in Movember this month! We had great support across all MKTG INC offices and, win or lose, money raised for charity – and overall awareness of men’s health issues – makes those itchy upper lips worth it. In last month’s newsletter, we did a survey on who would deliver the best ‘Mo, and in a landslide, NYC’s Javier Cubria was declared the winner.

“It’s a hollow victory, to be honest,” said Cubria. “I took the easy way out and went for a fairly respectable beard. Some of my MKTG INC brothers sacrificed much more, leasing valuable facial real estate for mustaches usually only seen on Uber drivers and 1980’s cop shows. So I share this recognition with them, and we were all relieved when the razors came out on December 1.”

So Superman, Obi-Wan Kenobi and a Ninja Turtle Walk Into a Bar…

Halloween HH

…Only to be met at the door by an army of John Demases.

Demases? No that doesn’t work. Demai? Demouses? Anyway, I digress. The point is that our NY studio team laid on the flattery by imitating (the man, the myth, the legend,) our very own designer guru and E-cigarette enthusiast John Demas…and boy did they nail it. There were beards aplenty, stylish eyeglasses, cardigans and yes, Keds.

While they weren’t busy taking family photos or hopping on client calls, our NY staff piled into the bar like a hoard of hungry zombies for our annual Halloween Happy Hour. I watched in horror as they attacked creepy cupcakes and poor defenseless pizza (RIP – Those poor pies never stood a chance).

Luckily, after a few “Pina Ghoulatas” and delicious “Sunset of the Damned” tequila sunrises – made by yours truly (to rave reviews, I might add),  the kooky crew settled into the party and enjoyed some quality time with their fellow MKTG’ers while Monster Mash blared in the background. A few kind folks even made generous donations in support of “Movember”.

Needless to say, it was a great time and we all felt like kids again in our quirky costumes. As the tradition of our Happy Hour rolls on like the great pumpkin, one thing is abundantly clear: MKTG INC puts the joy back in Halloween.

Trick or treat, Ya’ll.
