 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   WORLDWIDE    November 06, 2017 15:04 (Edited: November 07, 2017 02:04)
Winner - Uber: Boxes. I like the simple visual metaphor. Powerful and simple storytelling about the never ending traffic problems we have here in the region. I love how Uber used the data in the research to highlight the problem in each city. Visit to question why it makes sense to own a car. Or not. A small minus. The ad reminds me of the epic Sony PlayStation 2 Human Mountain ad from 2004.

Runner-up - The Heist No One Is Talking About: Oxfam GB. A powerful ad with a simple message. It hooks you from second 00:01 and plays with your feelings. Not easy to watch but easy to share. I love that the film on YouTube allows you to support and take action. Please do.

No winner.

Runner-up - Kowhai Creamery: Ice Cream Halloween. I like ice cream. Not this week's print ads.

Winner - Barnardo's: Follow Me. It's a simple social experiment film that hit me hard. Maybe because I have a young daughter and I'm starting to think about all the sick people that are online. I guess it worked for me.

Runner-up - 3M Hong Kong Limited: Forever Sticking Billboards. Simple visual execution. It definitely catches your attention. What also stuck was the credit list. 2 CCOs, 3 ECDs, 1 CD, 2 AD, 1 ACD, 1 CW and 1 AD (both senior) plus 1 producer.

Winner - Slotomania: It's Always Okay to Play Slotomania Case Study. This is one of those ideas that is easy to come up with but very hard to pull off. The client probably approved the idea before a producer realised that they needed to deliver 1440 original pieces of content in no time. And that tells in the execution. Chapeau for pulling it off.

Runner-up - Vodafone: Dream Job. This is like the Seti@home project that was popular years ago. But instead of helping finding aliens with you screensaver, the Dream Lab App allows you to find the cure for cancer while you sleep. It's a cool idea if it really works. I hope you will.
