An Alibi for those queueing for the new iPhone 5

As if Rupert didn’t have enough on his plate escorting 10 of the hottest women in town about London (job of the week: managing THE ROAR’s media tour of the capital – the cheerleaders for the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team), he found time to visit the devoted masses in the queue for the latest iPhone 5, bringing them chilled cans of Alibi health drink to revitalise them during their epic wait.

With 19 vitamins and minerals in every can, including natural immunity defence ingredient Wellmune Beta Glucan, the queue perked up so much, tweeting pictures and thank yous as they passed the time, that they were soon targeted by even more PR agencies following our lead.

Raring to go with THE ROAR

What a week it’s been at GGPR. We’ve been #LovingLondon with THE ROAR, the cheerleaders for the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team, as they launch their 2014 lingerie calendar and celebrate The Jags’ commitment to playing four home games in London; starting next month when they go head to head with the San Francisco 49ers at Wembley.

With pom poms at the ready, we journeyed with our cheerleaders across the city, taking them from Capital Radio and Choice FM to Radio One, Yahoo and to film a live Daily Mail online piece outside Battersea Power Station. We even held a photoshoot outside Big Ben with the Evening Standard’s Jeremy Selwyn - one of the most viewed and talked about pictures of the day – before heading to the square mile to surprise the lucky staff at Barclays and the Gherkin who were among those who had won surprise visits from THE ROAR as they Cheered Up London.

And did they ever stop? Not for a moment. As soon as the night drew in, it was time to cast off their famous white hotpants and jaguar print tops to don cocktail dresses for London Fashion Week parties, where the girls were interviewed by Fashion TV and papped on every red carpet.

THE ROAR are now back in Florida but it’s just a matter of weeks until they’re back to choose 32 junior ROAR from every London borough to dance with them at the Tailgate party at Wembley Stadium on the 27th of October, followed by their first major game in the capital.

We’re counting down the days until the big game at Wembley.

See you soon ladies

And Go Jags!

slow time is here!

slow time is here

PR people have got to be pretty efficient at meeting deadlines. So what are we doing launching a slow watch?

The idea, created by Chris Noerskau and Corvin Lask, is to bring time keeping back to basics. Forget the seconds, forget the minutes. Just watch the hour hand as it moves across a 24-hour dial, and you’ll begin to enjoy a slower pace of life, where the day has a natural flow.

We’ve all been wearing one and so far, we’re loving it. Who starts meetings at 9.08, or 3.17?

Not us!

Check out our favourite from the new slow watch collection. All priced £190-£230, Swiss-made, with quartz movement, 100m water resistant, stainless steel.

What head turners they are - and already in the Evening Standard trend watch spot!
