NF Wins Big at Houston ADDY Awards, 2/21/09

3113186027_14aa8999fd_oSaturday night was the 47th Annual Houston ADDY awards. It was the night of the stars. The American Advertising Federation honored Lou’s former boss, Don Brown, of Taylor Brown & Barnhill, while Only In Houston honored Steve Farrell, of Radio Music Theater, who is also one of the funniest guys I have ever seen. I met him after the ADDYs when Lou and I went to the theatre to present him with his award.  Steve is a great man and I was proud to meet him and his family.

But wait,  there were more winners Saturday night!3304599442_cee3e331b9_b

STANANDLOU and I won two gold ADDYs, one silver ADDY, and a Special Judges Award for Public Service Advertising for our new “Just Ask! ads! . That was a total surprise to me. I’m thankful that the work here on the Just Ask campaign is getting noticed. More people will learn about nf as we keep pushing forward. Thank you all for supporting the site with your visits.

  1. You did good, Reggie. I can’t believe how many people came up to you and said, “Hi, Reggie!” Everybody in Houston advertising knows about you. Kind of spooky, huh?

  10. Cindy and Susan, if you’re ever in need of PSA print ads for Texas NF, we can revise the copy with the Texas NF url if needed. Just thought I’d put it out there.

    I am in awe.

  13. Comment 12 Thank you Bart. I couldn’t believe it. Lou was nice and quiet, and myself was like make that go fast. Hearing all the names and what not, I was about to go crazy. When they first said the name Stan&Lou for “Reggie Bibbs” and showed the AD. It was a feeling that I never felt before. I felt like I wanted to cry. Lou asked me, “Do you want to go up and get your awards?” I said sure. That was a really cool feeling. And near the end of the event, they said and the Special Judges Award goes to “Reggie Bibbs” for “It Impairs, It scars, It Debilitates.”

  20. Hey, Brian, where the hell you’ve been? We love you, man! Don’t go away again. The last time we heard from you I think you were about to have more surgery. How did that go? I hope they didn’t cut off anything you might need later. You know what I mean. Thanks for the nice words about the awards.

  34. Emily,

    Wow! It is really great to hear from you. I miss you as well. I know everyone else feels the same. I feel a lot better now that I have heard from you. Give little Morty a big hug. Have you seen any more of the scary things at home. Just tell them to go over to Lou’s house.

    Comment by Reggie Bibbs | March 1, 2009 | Reply

  35. Reggie, no more scary things thankfully! We should be leaving Connecticut by this summer so hopefully it wont follow us lol.

  36. Great! Emily. What state will you move to? You can always hang a picture of Lou up. If that doesn’t scary anyone away nothing will.

  37. I thought I saw Lou picture in the post office the other day…along with 9 other people. Must be a popular guy.

  38. Hey Emily,
    What a nice surprise! Did the truck from FAO Schwartz arrive for Morty yet? The only thing scary down here is Reggie as his power increases daily; speaking engagements around the country, lobbying in Washington, creating a foundation. Before you know it, he’ll have Obama’s ear and probably won’t give it back. Give you and Morty a hug and a kiss from me. Preferably a much bigger hug and kiss to you as we haven’t been together for, well, forever!
    Love to all, Lou
