Jingle Punks at Realscreen Summit 2013: Day 1

January 28th, 2013

The Jingle Punks crew has rolled up to Realscreen Summit 2013 in Washington, DC. Day 1 saw attendees arrive… and Jingle Punks throw THE party at this year’s summit. Here’s a dispatch from our people on the ground…

Jingle Punks kicked off Realscreen 2013 the only way we know how—with a sweaty, boozy dance party. Co-sponsored with our friends at Ardaban and Shine America, the event was held at the hottest new night spot in DC, The Huxley (where even President Obama goes to get his drink and groove on). Attendees included folks from Magical Elves, Matador, WeTV, High Noon, North South, Leftfield, Shine UK, ITV, TBS/TNT, Bravo, USA Networks, The Weinstein Company, Spike, Brownstone Entertainment… basically, anyone you can imagine.

With DJ Bachelorette Party (aka Jingle Punk Luke Silas, one half of production duo and DJ crew Wolf Dick Clique) on the decks, the whiskey was flowing and booties were shaking. By the end of the night, no arrests had been made (we think), and an unforgettable night had been seared into the memories of those who could remember it. The next morning? Coffee and aspirin, and of course meeting-going and panel-attending. Jingle all the way.

PUNKS IN VEGAS: The 2013 Jingle Punks Retreat

January 7th, 2013

JingleGroupVegas

On the first weekend of January, employees from the New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto Jingle Punks offices converged on Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for the first ever company-wide Jingle Punks retreat.

In addition to the usual Vegas antics, all Jingle Punks employees spent a day in workshops, meetings, and presentations, assessing the state of Jingle Punks while also forming grand plans for 2013 and beyond.

Words can’t describe the weekend, but ‘Epic,’ as our CEO Jingle Jared has been known to exclaim, comes to mind.

OK, so do these words: casinos, body-surfing, party buses, boots of beer, and paddle spankings.

Check out photos from the weekend on Facebook. And don’t judge.

Be The Boss, Featuring Music By Jingle Punks, Premieres Sunday, December 2 On A&E

November 30th, 2012

Be The Boss, an offshoot of CBS’ hit Undercover Boss, will have its series premiere this Sunday, December 2, on A&E.

The show pits two employees of the same franchise-based company against each other. More, from Deadline:

The employees go through challenges thinking they’re vying for a promotion, but in fact the winner will be handed the keys to a franchise or new branch of their own. There are no losers in this competition as the one who loses out on the franchise prize gets the promotion both employees had been seeking.

Everyone’s a winner? Sounds great! Jingle Punks is proud to have provided music sourced from our artist library.

Be The Boss is produced by Studio Lambert. The show airs Sundays at 10/9c on A&E.
