ALL REVEALED IN NZGIRL’S BDO ‘URBAN-MYTH’ STUNT
This from Admedia, NZ:
DDB Auckland ECD Paul Catmur has been forced to finally "reveal" the story behind the staged air accident during nzgirl’s stunt at this year’s Big Day Out.
Today's NBR reports it has "obtained" an email sent by Catmur to the Civil Aviation Authority, in which the DDB ECD says, "we sold a dummy".
The paper says Catmur (right) was responding to a CAA demand for explanations about the hoax, which was (and continues to be) promoted on the NZ GIRL WEBSITE where visitors can view streaming amcam-style footage (clearly labelled "BDO Stunt") of a naked "victim" writhing in pain.
"We have enough to do without dealing with this [possible "unreported" air-accidents] nonsense," a CAA spokesman huffed to the paper.
"This year," Catmur says in the email, "everybody expected us to do something -- but we did nothing other than spread an urban myth that our stunt had gone wrong."
