 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   WORLDWIDE    September 11, 2017 15:09 (Edited: September 12, 2017 01:09)
A clear winner this week with Diesel. A fantastic spot that is true to its DNA and crafted to perfection. The casting is really something special, and in the line a great twist on 'Go with the flow'. 10/10.

Marmite in second place is an intriguing campaign, a nice take on all the heritage tests that have popped up recently. The TV is well cast and performed, made us laugh. Will be interesting to see how far they go with the testing... we both love Marmite, is it in our genes?

We're sorry but nothing is up to standard here.

Not a stellar bunch this week. Saw the flying hammock on the internet somewhere a couple of weeks ago so it at least it went social. Believed it was real too, so there you go.

Winner: Whopper Severance got a lot of traction online. Certainly makes LinkedIn a less boring place to us, which is no small task. (1).jpg

Mark and Jamie's first collaboration was in the kitchen of a Wellington pizza restaurant.

First stop was Y&R Paris, followed by CLM BBDO Paris for a couple of years, where they worked on international campaigns for Pepsi International, and the Olympic sponsorship campaign for French power giant EDF, voted one of the most popular campaigns of that year by the French public.

In 2012 they were invited to help create the agency Rosapark. After five years of helping the agency grow, working on clients such as Thalys, Monoprix, Europcar, Decathlon and more recently Skoda; winning awards at D&AD, The One Show, Cannes, Clios, Eurobest, A.D.C and many more. They are now at Ogilvy Paris to be apart of Ogilvy's 'Next Chapter' project.
