The print invites the Harley bikers to gather in Paris, even though the French Motorbike show has been cancelled. The idea is to use a provoking tone by telling them that their wives don't have to find out about the cancellation and that meanwhile it would be a good occasion to spend some "boys" time in Paris. It refers to a provocative and off the wall base line: "The Paris motorbike shows has been cancelled, but don't tell your wife".

Guest judge: Duncan Marshall, ECD, Droga5, New York

 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   USA    October 28, 2009 03:40 (Edited: April 12, 2011 07:29)
http://www.bestadsontv.com/news/upload/Duncan%20Marshall-web.jpgThis week's guest judge is Duncan Marshall, executive creative director and founding partner of Droga5, based in New York. After law school, Duncan was convinced that the world needed more creative people. He traded his fountain pen for a crayon, and so began his advertising career. For over 10 years, he worked as a group head at Saatchi & Saatchi, London, producing award-winning work for clients such as Sony, T-Mobile, the NSPCC, the British Army, Virgin and Procter & Gamble. Winner of the UK's 2002 TV Commercial of the Year Award, he helped Saatchi & Saatchi win Agency of the Year at the Cannes International Advertising Festival that same year.
In 2003, Duncan moved to New York City to take up the post of executive creative director at Publicis New York. That first year saw the agency become New York's most-awarded agency at Cannes. It also won major awards at D&AD, as well as Clio and Andy Awards. Duncan has been named one of the world's top ten Art Directors by Boards magazine. To date, he still likes nothing more than a blank sheet of paper and a crayon.

TAC: The Ride. Really well put together, the last shot is shocking. One Pommie whinge: don't bike riders see this POV every day though? Still, makes you sit up, whoever you are....

BEST TV
Some arresting production in the spots this week but I was left with a few questions on many of them, like:
How can you get away with showing a dog, much less a human, driving like it's on crack in an alcohol ad?
Can you call an ad 'viral' before it's actually gone viral?
Did the team cut a version of the squid spot where the Thai girl punched her bloke in the eyeball at the end? Would have preferred it I think.
Also, Did that New Zealand family ignore the cancer because they thought it was a Direct Mail stunt for Hubba Bubba?
Anyway, best two for me were:
TAC: The Ride. Really well put together, the last shot is shocking. One Pommie whinge: don't bike riders see this POV every day though? Still, makes you sit up, whoever you are.
Cadbury: Squid. This beat the Breast cancer spot to second place because of the details. I love that they made the squid blink and put coriander and ginger on the quivering tentacly bits. Like so much of the work from Thailand it's mad as a split snake but it does draw a crowd.

BEST OUTDOOR
Just a couple of quick questions...
Is there a danger in doing an ad for a TV show that involves people having a great time in a cinema?
Does the Weak Shop take the weak US Dollar? I've been in Sydney for a few weeks and it's bloody expensive.
Okay, so my favourites were:
The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation: The Blob.
Even though I'm sure Hubba Bubba sales in New Zealand rocketed after this stunt, there's no doubt it also did what it was supposed to and got people thinking. Btw I liked how the police just cruise on by. I wonder what was more unusual in the town that day than a forty foot pedestrian hazard.
Toyota Hilux: How to clean a Hilux. Nice to see a classic visual and headline poster again. Rare these days. Art direction could have been pushed a bit but it's a simple idea that's right on the button tonally. Like many good posters it'd make a nice little 15" spot. Look out for it on this page in a couple of weeks eh?

BEST PRINT
One question only:
Does anyone else think we should have a whip-round and hire someone to firebomb DDB New Zealand? They're doing some great work and should be stopped. I realise I had my chance when I worked with Toby Talbot years ago in London and could have blamed it all on the lunatic who was running the place.
Favourites were:
Arts Channel: Rothko. Well considered art direction and depressingly good copy.
Sky Television: Fast and Furious. Made me look. Made me laugh. Made me want to watch it.

Toodlepip.
