Students from Bucks Ad School cleverly gatecrash D&AD's New Blood Exhibition to promote themselves.

Ben + Ken, from Bucks Ad School, gatecrashed this years D&AD New Blood Exhibition in spectacular style.

Rather than attending D&AD New Blood this year, Bucks threw their own, very impressive, exhibition at Karmarama. But Ben and Ken clearly thought "Why not both?" It costs a lot of money to buy a booth at D&AD so instead they found away around it by setting up just outside the entrance.

Of course security may have chased them away but in this business, creativity is always rewarded. They were allowed to stay and had the prime position for catching the attention of passing employers.
