Mammoth Mountain is Southern California's largest ski resort. From its size, to its vertical rise, to its annual snowfall, everything about it is big. So LA-based David&Goliath created these posters to give viewers a sense of the scale. It falls under the new tagline, 'Play Big'.

WWF briefed Ogilvy Cape Town to write a radio spot to make people more environmentally active. A few days later, Car Magazine asked them to write an eco-focused radio ad to launch their Green Issue. Separately they approached WWF and Car Magazine with an idea to produce a single ad featuring both their green messages. That way they’d be using half the paper, half the fuel, and half the electricity.

The aim of this campaign was to start creating a distinctive and memorable brand voice for Budget Rent A Car, who to date have only run retail ads in New Zealand. The key customers are 50+. They are looking for value but equally desire quality and comfort. Using the biggest, most famous sound effects of all time, Y&R Auckland produced a radio campaign to promote two of Budget’s core offerings: reliable vehicles and quality service.

Guest judge: Remi Babinet, Founder & Chairman of BETC Paris

 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   FRANCE    January 28, 2009 00:05 (Edited: April 12, 2011 08:30)
https://www.bestadsontv.com/news/upload/REMI-BABINET-LATEST.jpgThis week's guest judge is Remi Babinet, Global CD - Euro RSCG; Founder & Chairman of BETC Paris. Remi began his career in 1985 as copywriter at BDDP (TBWA Paris) and quickly ranked among his generation's leading creative minds. In 1994, he left BDDP to found his own agency, BETC, with Eric Tong Cuong and Mercedes Erra.
Named European Agency of the Year by Ad Age in 2002 and 'most creative French advertising agency' 11 times, BETC has carved out a brand image that is original, award-winning and resolutely modern for its many clients - Evian, Air France, Peugeot, Canal +, Petit Bateau, Lacoste, among others. Today, the company has 600 employees.
As Chairman of BETC and Global Creative Director of Euro RSCG Worldwide, Remi has consistently challenged the traditional limits of creative advertising, opening up his agency up to new creative fields. In 2000, BETC launched the legendary PANIK electro/rock nights, and in 2003, Remi inaugurated the Passage du Desir, a space dedicated to fashion, design, painting and photography. Remi is also the Guest Editor of the Gunn Report this year, and is the author of the book BETC Paris, published worldwide this week.

I have to admit that I have three favourites. Cadbury Eyebrow Dance, Careerbuilder.com Tips and T-Mobile Dance. Lots of questions of change here - changing your life, changing the daily routine. It's great to see three such crazy films.
But Cadbury is the winner. I love the seriousness of the children. The gorilla was allowed to let himself go, but them, no.

BEST PRINT
Veet Bush wins it. Thank goodness someone thought of doing this as it is hilarious.
Second comes the VW CrossPolo print. Again, it made me laugh. It's always good to laugh in 2009.

BEST OUTDOOR
My number one is HBO Wall of Secrets. I like the fact that you can open someone's head and hear what's going on inside. It's what I call trash. HBO excites our perverted curiosity yet again.
In second place, Blu Tack Sticky Tape. Why did I like this? Because it's funny. It has the look of a classic at first glance, then you notice how absurd it is to have this soft thing in the place of the sellotape.

Nathan McGuinness of Kommitted exposes our inner chocolate obsession with a delicious :30 for Hershey's via Arnold NYC.
With VFX expertise by way of Asylum, McGuiness is able to showcase the merriment that goes into producing each and every mouthwatering Hershey's Kiss. Opening with a churning vat of delectable milk chocolate, the Kiss is born. After being shaped, it's then hurled into its iconic silver wrapping. Down and around a giant slide it goes, landing smoothly in a barber's chair where it checks itself out. Showered by cheers and well wishing paparazzi of other Kisses, a machine flings the superstar into one of three predetermined destinations. The job of the kiss is fulfilled; when it's chosen by a young boy and handed off to his mother, whose elated face says it all.

In the two :30's, The Seed and The Spark we see the origins of ideas coming to life down the side of a mountain and through the snow where extreme sports ideas are born. The Black Iris compositions complement the renegade spirit of these spots with eclectic electronic flourishes that drive home the idea that the X Games aren't just another series of sporting events, they are original works of sport.

Thess new interactive murals were created by BBDO-NY to promote the third season of Big Love. These murals, launching in New York and Los Angeles the week of January 5th, feature snapshots of people walking through a city street. Headphone jacks are built into each person’s head, so that passersby can use their headphones (or those provided by street teams) to plug in and hear each person in the mural’s inner and most personal secrets. These secrets range from the innocuous (i.e., a woman who’s in love with her boss) to the dramatic (i.e., a woman who is hiding her drinking problem from her husband or a man who is planning to leave his pregnant wife for someone else). In addition, when people plug into the headphone jack near the logo, they can hear a trailer made up from some of the most dramatic clips of the upcoming season, in which secrets abound amongst all the main characters.
