Blige, Will Smith, the Beastie Boys, T.I. and others.

New York: Which came first: the idea or the egg?

The award-winning animation, VFX and live-action company’s director Adam Pierce and his team recently produced “Vertigo Egg,” one of the animated intros for the Ad Council’s 57th Annual Public Service Award Dinner.
