By Egotist / / Sad news for Hub Strategy & Communication – as they’ve apparently lost the Oakland A’s account that they’ve worked on for 8 years. But instead of letting it get them down, they decided to celebrate their work and create this fun highlight reel of the 70+ spots Hub produced for the Oakland team over the years. Hub Founder DJ O’Neil told us, “I’m saddened by it, but I have to look at the bright side—it was a hell of a ride!

Nice work, guys.
