 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   WORLDWIDE    March 11, 2019 16:20 (Edited: March 12, 2019 03:20)
Winner: SpareBank 'Magic Light' This ad is definitely conceived under the nordic lights. There is no secret about that. There is also no secret that I was born in the Nordic. Maybe that's why I like the film, or maybe because the biggest risk is not taking any... what can I say. The future is bright.

Runner up: IAD 'You Have a New Message'. There is tension in the air. The single take is a perfect thumb-stopper to distract me from own life's worries. It's an existential feast for my eyes and fingers. It builds so well that I didn't want to skip it. Until I did.

Winner: Offset by Shutterstock 'Playing with baby'. This idea breaks the mould and makes me question my own unconscious bias. More of these please.

Runner up: Costa Rican National Amputee Soccer Team 'My spare boot'. Good ideas travel. This one took them to the World Cup. Making something that is useless useful is always helpful. The only goooooooooooooooal in this category.

Winner: S7 Airlines 'Visit Earth'. This idea is literally out of this world. The response from planet earth has been lukewarm. But it's gone crazy viral on the other side of Jupiter.

Runner down: ING Bank 'The Rembrandt Tutorials'. The guys from the Rembrandt tutorial should start a religion because I almost believed it was true.
I wonder what Rembrandt has to say about this idea.
