McCann staff members pay tribute to old office, gangster style

McCann staff members pay tribute to old office, gangster style

McCann was one of the first tenants in the I.M. Pei-designed Sunning Plaza, located in Causeway Bay, when it opened 30 years ago. In "Heroic Exit" (above), both new McCann staffers and 'old boys' recreate a well-known scene from the 1986 film, A Better Tomorrow, that used the building as a setting. Sunning Plaza is now being demolished, and McCann has moved into its new office in Hysan Plaza.
