Visa’s Twitchhicker

Excellent leaning into the frame this week from Visa, whose agency Whybin\TBWA in New Zealand spotted a gap in popular culture and plugged it.

His departure also happily coincides with the launch of the new global Visa campaign, and it can’t hurt that he appears to be wearing a TBWA T-shirt in several pictures. More here.
