The new humorous ad campaign created by RKCR/Y&R tackles employment issues but also highlights the many services NABS has on offer from career advice to training. The campaign launches in the trade press and across digital panels at 13 London Underground stations donated by CBS Outdoor. My personal favorite "Global head of international accounts". Man, I should make up a good title like that.

Due to overhunting (because Hollywood bimbos eat cartilage), and and environmental degradation, shark numbers are declining.
