 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   WORLDWIDE    May 27, 2019 11:54 (Edited: May 27, 2019 21:54)
My selection goes to BETC for Lacoste. Truly, a beautiful film... As I'm ECD for Monoprix, I obviously can't vote for it, but I do like the Lacoste film, it's very strong. It summarizes everything we love, is an emotionally powerful story, with spectacular special effects and an epic soundtrack. Perfect in every way. Hurray!

My selection goes to MYBACIN, a visual with a quirky and distinct way of showing the way bacteria travels. It's in the purest tradition of Thai ads, a little strange. They dare to create images that others don't. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but here it's successful. Runner-up: Condor.

My selection goes to Paddy Power. It's smart to play off a social matter in an ad campaign. It's funny, and cleverly executed. I can only imagine what a good laugh rugby fans had when they saw the posters. A beautiful, popular campaign that everyone can see, that feels nice! Runner-up: Tyrolit.

Winner: Samsung's Back 2 Life. It seems that we're using virtual more and more to interact with the real world, it's a transformation of basic uses. Here, we use a video game to learn how to save lives. It touches a population that doesn't really look at other media, a very clever approach. Of course, it's a bit contradictory to use a fighting game as we should be teaching people not to use violence to solve problems. Runner-up: Lacoste. Fichteberg (1).jpg

Together, they brought in a host of well-known brands such as Tag-Heuer worldwide, EDF International (voted best French TV campaign in 2012). Their campaigns for Alka Seltzer, Mars, and HP Printers, among others, have received a multitude of awards over the years (Cannes Lions, D&AD, Clios, Eurobest, Epica among many).

In 2012, Gilles created Rosapark, part of the Havas Group, with Jean-Francois Sacco and Jean-Patrick Chiquiar. Today the agency employs over 100 people and works with more than 20 clients.
