The co-CEOs of newly merged advertising giant, Publicis Omincom Group, have been dubbed ‘Jaurice’ by a spoof twitter account that has hijacked the @PublicisOmnicom handle.

The @PublicisOmnicom account started tweeting on July 27 and during the press conference in which the merger of two of the world’s largest ad holding companies – Omnicom and Publicis – was announced.

The account’s bio reads: “This is a parody. But then again, isn’t the ad industry.”

With only 24 tweets the account already has a large audience with more than 2,260 followers.

During the press conference, which was lead by Publicis CEO Maurice Levy and Omnicom’s John Wren, the prankster asked followers to “please affectionately refer to our co-CEOs as ‘Jaurice’, and not ‘Maurohn’. Merci”.

The account uses recent events as fodder for its tweets including this one below which references the public dispute between Charles Saatchi and his wife, celebrity chef Nigella Lawson.
