The future’s bright, the future’s orange for Scottish PR agency boss

Colourful creature from the time before digital cameras

Scott and SnapSCOTT Douglas is the co-founder of Holyrood PR and his childhood furry friend was a big eared chimpanzee called Jo-Jo.

However a wicked witch recently forced the poor primate to re-enact the terrifying public dump incinerator scene from Toy Story 3. Alas, for Jo-Jo there were no green aliens with a claw to stage a last minute rescue.

Keep up to date with all the good stuff we share at Holyrood PR – by signing up for short, sharp and always interesting newsletter.

So Scott looked out this wee beauty, which he got from his first love in 1990.  For those keeping count, that means that Snap (for that is the orange creature’s name) is 24 years old. Which makes him longer in the tooth than most of the Holyrood staff, never mind their childhood cuddly toys.

Scott’s ex was a photographer and Snap came free with an order of 35mm film (the stuff that used to go in cameras) which also dates him. It also helps explain the name.

Despite being a big, all-growed-up director of our Scottish PR agency, Scott still has a soft spot for this luminous fella, with the oversized belly button and even bigger ears.

Snap is actually a Kodak Kolorkin (Google it) and is never far from Scott’s bedside.
