Vitruvio Leo Burnett Madrid and TCM/Turner Classic Movies show 'support' (major air quotes going on here) for the Current writers strike. Click the image for full ad which just has a lot of crumpled white space really.

Oh, and it ain't over until the fat lady sings. MMMmkay?

In a message sent to members at mid-day Sunday, WGA West president Patric Verrone and WGA East prexy Michael Winship said, "The facts: we are still in talks and do not yet have a contract. When and if a tentative agreement is reached, the first thing we will do is alert our membership with an e-mail message. Until then, please disregard rumors about either the existence of an agreement or its terms."

Thanks WGA Strike Blog at Variety.

    Nice and simple. Agree with Neo. Rafa Anton and his team are still managing BOTH to come up with a bunch of great work AND see Real Madrid a lot.

    I'm sure if these overpaid crybabies put aside their anger for ten seconds they could figure out that the ad is Spanish, but they don't really care about that. They're just looking for any reason to be angry, which I find odd for people who make such a big deal out of protecting their own creativity. What's good for them is only good for them; anyone else's creative output be damned.

    You have to be PC to screen-writers?! They're not even a minority...
