Acura's agency Mullen Lowe contacted us last year requesting permission to use TOV in an unspecified way in an upcoming campaign. Of course we granted permission and then waited to see what it might be. Today, we found out they used the TOV logo in a few of the Anime clips you can see below in the press release.
