Top spot.

We have worked with some of the most innovative brands.

This week alone, we have tim ellis the cmo of activision and todd handelman -- todd pendleton.

We are very excited.

How much pressure are you under when you are working with something like activision.

Guns and violence in videogames, that's what people want but many people don't want that.

How do you balance that?

The big challenge for"" call of duty is they have a great core audience $800 million the first take.

That bar gets satire every day and we have to exceed that.

We have to talk to our core of great gamers but expands them more.

We have to expand to would be gamers.

There is the salty expert and he embraces the new guy and that was laid byjonah hill and that did a lot to move business.
