I just spoke to Nathalie Le Berre at Quad Productions London, who tells me that Lee and Dan of volkswagen polo viral ad fame have just been signed to them.
"It's a perfect fit for us really, we also have Remy Belvaux who made the film Man Bites Dog, and they'll get along like a house on fire, we thought we must get these guys onboard. We are very happy they have joined Quad London as a directing duo, because we think they are just brilliant, and have the same sense of humor that we have."
Lee and Dan will be available for commercial shoots, viral or not, as well as traditional agency work as they both come from an ad agency background. "It's what they are good at and enjoy doing."
