The client's brief called for helping their students gain a deeper appreciation of the culinary skills required in French cuisine. The target were 21 to 40 year old Malaysians participating in courses at the institute and whose only prior knowledge of French cuisine was, at best, that 'escargot' translated to 'snail'. McCann Erickson Malaysia dramatised the intricate workings within a French kitchen by using a symbol best associated with French cuisine, the point was made that not just anyone could become a French chef. You have to earn the privilege of going through many levels, as compared to the easier promotion in the cooking of other cuisine.

 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   NETHERLANDS    November 25, 2009 07:27 (Edited: February 17, 2023 04:19)
https://www.bestadsontv.com/news/upload/Eric_Quennoy_SMALL.jpgThis week's guest judge is Eric Quennoy, creative director at Wieden and Kennedy, Amsterdam. Eric has been at W+K Amsterdam since April 2006 after working in New York for 8 years, his last post working with David Droga at Publicis, where his work was recognized at Cannes, Clio, and D&AD. As Creative Director on the Nike business, Eric has recently overseen Nike's highly awarded 'Here I Am' women's campaign and is also behind Nike's current World Cup 2010 effort.

Just for the simple, one-take, post-free ambition of the director alone, I'm giving the Golden Zoloft to Toyota Hybrid. It harkens back to a sweeter, gentler, pre-flame time, and I'm feeling wistful right now....

BEST TV
Last time I did a review here on Bestads, my colleagues all accused me of being 'kind of a dick'. So this time, in order to imbue my critique with a healthy dose of positivity, I've popped 800mg of Zoloft and had just a little nip of Macallan (18 year, 2 ice cubes). By the way, it's an absolutely gorgeous day here in Amsterdam.
Okay, here I go, diddly-o. TV. Just for the simple, one-take, post-free ambition of the director alone, I'm giving the Golden Zoloft to Toyota Hybrid. It harkens back to a sweeter, gentler, pre-flame time, and I'm feeling wistful right now. Runner up is the Toshiba space chair spot. Man, I'd love to be sitting up there.

BEST PRINT
Coolio, onto print. Since all of these ads are a gag I have to go with the ones that made me the happiest. Extra happy prize goes to Sky Movies Tintanic, with Axe Snow Angel close behind.
