Dave Droga has lured Saatchi & Saatchi Auckland's Matty Burton and Dave Bowman, Australasia's hottest creative team, to join him at Droga 5 in New York. The Aussie pair made their rep at The Glue Society Sydney, winning a Titanium and the DM Grand Prix at Cannes for Virgin '5 Cent' and 'Warren' respectively. Last night the team won six Silver Pencils and a Bronze at AWARD for the YoungGuns campaign via Saatchi's Auckland

The king is fucking well in the all together. That young guns stuff is just not that good.

They're talented guys, they do good work, but hell man, that stuff just isn't that good at all.

Well played Matty & Dave. I'm sure you guys will rock NY just as hard as you've rocked Oz & NZ.

And for the record, I think the Young Guns stuff is absolutely top drawer.

Obviously this photo was taken about 5 minutes after they got the call from Droga.

Unfortunately for you, the judges obviously thought it was better than yours.

That young guns work is derivative arse.
They haven't done anything worthy of the tital 'hottest team in australasia' since they left Glue.
And in their heart of hearts they know it.

I thought the Young Guns stuff was good. The website was hilarious. It may have felt like a well-worn theme, but it was executed with a nice twist.

Good on them.

What did you guys win last night?

Shame they're leaving , we need more Burton and Bowman's here in Oz - why doesn't Droga take Furby instead?

PS - Whose arse is that in the YGuns ad, Matty or Dave's?

I don't know if it's too late or if this is the right forum for this sort of thing but I want to take this chance to tell you something Dave.

I love you.

Sorry Matty, I know this comes as hard news, but a soul mate is a soul mate. What we had was just physical.

Cheers Boys. Show 'em how it's done in NYC.

These guys are talented and I hope they have a ball in NYC with Mr.Droga. However [no matter hpow good the work], does anyone else just love the irony of having so much glitter bestowed on pro bono work by the industry, talking to the industry about entering an industry award show?

So they haven't had as good a year as they have had in the past. Still a bad year for them still sees them win at Cannes and bag eight or nine pencils at award.

I wish that was a bad year for me!

Good year? Bad year? I would say getting a job offer from Droga makes it a fucking Great year. Power on boys.

Matty and dave you make me proud and green.

I always loved you guys and your spin on everything. I'm here at my computer trying to crack a shit strip ad az you're packing your bags for NYC in Droga's stable.

But you did it in massive style with black dwarves, desperate ugly zitty virgins, arese sores, thrush and agency payouts. I mean...Fuck yeah.

You guys are going to rock the big apple to it's core.

LOVE FROM "GET MUMMY A BREEZER" No, make that a Bud.
