Damien rules. He wrote ads inside hot air balloons while the great migration was taking place below. And now his long-lost brother Julian Horton is Where's Wallying HIS way around the plains of Africa. Fuck awards. THAT is some cool shit.

Any man that can write an award winning ad while being stared down by a bull elephant gets my vote. Well done Linklater. Great news.
