The team here at unusual have many skills, but impressions aren’t high up on the list. Jon can do a passable imitation of Churchill the Dog, and that’s about it, to be honest. Which is why, when Global asked us to work with them on the production of an impressions-led live event at Bafta in front of 200 industry bigwigs as part of Advertising Week Europe 2015, we decided to call in some proper talent. Step forward Debra Stephenson, Terry Mynott and Mitch Benn, accompanied by their takes on Madonna, Dame Judi Dench, the Caramel Bunny, Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, David Attenborough, Henry VIII, Paul McCartney and, um, a Dalek.
Would we do it again? “Oh yes.” Did anything go wrong on the day? “Oh no no no.” See, that’s Jon doing that impression. You can’t even see his lips move, can you?
