Guest Judge: Leslie Sims, CCO, Y&R North America

 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   WORLDWIDE    May 28, 2018 12:32 (Edited: May 28, 2018 22:32)
Winner: iZettle. In the world on Amazon prime, this message hits at a perfect time. The end line is a perfect rally cry. Emboldens both Provokes buyers to seek out local small business- which emboldens people to start their own thing again. Save ourselves!

Runner up: McDonald's Ronald McDonald House. Beautifully shot and great insight for parents with sick kids. The mom in me got a little teary I'm not gonna lie.

Winner: IKEA Harry. Points for timeliness and relevance. Simple, clean and funny.

Runner up: Adidas. Fun. Great to look at all the personalized rip-off Adiddydas examples- though missed an opportunity to leverage 'original.'

Winner: Sky Airline Low Cost Zone. Great PR effort and super fun way to run a discount. If I were in town I may be game to actually go and see if it works.

Runner Up: Vegetables Name Change. I always love to see someone take a thing, add an idea, and suddenly that thing is seen as something else entirely. Also I'm a fan of anything anyone can do to get my kids to eat a carrot.

Winner: Fly Like A President. We need that here- except the only place our President goes is golfing.

Runner up: The Illegal Hour. Smart use of media to leverage the product benefit. Headshot Vertical (1).jpg
