We all know about the severe weather conditions that have been sweeping the US. Gale force winds, temperatures dropping through the floor and a polar vortex have caused pretty much the entire Midwest to shut down in the last few weeks. Bad news for our poor courier, trying to make his way to Chicago from Indianapolis with precious footage for one of the hotly anticipated Superbowl spots. Having been trapped in the snow, he had to turn back towards Indianapolis, only to find that it was completely shut down, with the exception of emergency vehicles. Luckily, through our partner network, we were able to have the footage transcoded in the middle of the night during the total city shutdown and transferred via Beam for the start of the day in Los Angeles!
