You owe me a life

A play on a 13-year-old Nelly song was the winning ad campaign? Which agency conceived it? Cool Dads and Partners?

There was a pilot made for Chopped that never aired – I have a copy of it – in which the concept was very different. The original Chopped was set in a mansion.

And, each course, when somebody was chopped, their food was fed to the chihuahua.
