When opportunity knocks, open the GD door.
Never take your eye off the ball.

When preparedness meets opportunity, great things can happen. Like this champion ad that’s been in the hopper, waiting to hit our television tubes for the past four years.
As marketers, it’s our responsibility not only to do great, innovative work, but also to strike when the iron is hot. So we become opportunists. And like Andy Murray, we stay light on our feet. Because you never know when the perfect time will arrive to win over your audience. Like, say, right after you’re dead.
