Sexy professional couple with house to themselves attempt a bit of sauce, only to find everyday obstacles rather spoil the mood... Swanky hotel website/publisher Mr & Mrs Smith came to Nice Shirt wanting to make a film to promote their website. We all recognised the urban couple trying to escape the drudgery of normal life with a saucy weekend. But try as you might, you can't fake it at home, there are too many distractions. So we shot this idea as a pastiche of sexy perfume ads. Hopefully it rings a few bells...Actually, hopefully it won't!

GUEST JUDGE: BOB WINTER, ECD, LEO BURNETT/CHICAGO

 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   USA    November 01, 2007 00:31 (Edited: October 31, 2007 13:31)
https://www.bestadsontv.com/news/upload/BOB-WINTER.jpgThis week’s guest judge is Bob Winter, executive creative director at Leo Burnett/Chicago. In his first year at Burnett, he and partner Reed Collins won Cannes lions for work on Altoids. Before coming to Burnett, Bob spent three years at Goodby, Silverstein and Partners in San Francisco. He spent his formative years in advertising with DDB, where he created the Budweiser “Real Men of Genius” campaign and won Gold Lions in both the television and radio categories. Over the course of his career, he has also won at D&AD, the One Show, Clios and Communications Arts.

BEST TV
I don't know, I wanted to love something here, I really did, but we turned out to be just great friends. Maybe I wasn't drunk enough. The Audiad I found to be quite beautiful. I couldn't wait for the car to get built so I could see it in all its glory. The music was a great and unexpected choice. And the tag line: 'the slowest car we've ever built' is, I think, a great twist once I figured out that it's because it takes so long to build (unlike the car, I'm slow). But a long road to get there and I wonder if there couldn't have been a more surprising route. I also enjoyed the spectacle of the Lexuspop up storybook spot. I want that book for my kids. And I really do think it is a nice technique and fresh for the category. But I think maybe they made a cool book but forgot about the story a little. Right?

BEST PRINT
God, I feel like such a tool. You're all going to hate me. I swear I am trying. But I am not totally feeling it here. Maybe I'm on my advertising period. The Lowenbrauad was nice in its simplicity and restraint. And pretty surprising for a beer ad. And the Negroniad, well, it's a landscape made of meat. That right there is pretty great. You wake up and the sky is made of bacon and, hell, that's going to be a good day. But aside from being technically marvelous, I wish there was a bigger thought to connect it to. Am I wrong? Write me, fill me in guys.

BEST OUTDOOR
OK, we're in business. I'm not a total a-hole. The Slow Downbillboards are really great. Surprising and fresh and sure they might make you crash looking at them while you're driving but dang if that isn't a nice powerful thought. Well done. Yeah for advertising. And then I thought the Salvation Army human billboard would be really, really tough to ignore and hard to forget, which is exactly the point I think. And the WWF ad even though my partner Reed (Collins) says is a bad comping job is a very nice, simple powerful way to make a point.

OUTSIDER USA'S RIC CANTOR SAYS 'NO STANK YOU'

 TV   USA    October 30, 2007 20:18 (Edited: October 30, 2007 09:18)
https://www.bestadsontv.com/news/http://www.bestadsontv.com/files/thumbnails/2007/Oct/9527_Lung_Balloons.jpg
When director Ric Cantor of Outsider USA recently came to LA to direct his first job for the US Market, he stank up the joint. Actually, it was a high school in Seattle, where he spent three days filming a campaign via Wong Doody for the Tobacco Prevention and Control Program Washington State Department of Health. Falling under the campaign banner "No Stank You," spots include "Lung Balloons", "Chest Sitter", "Smokin' Hot", and "Stank A Lot".
"The agency wanted all of the spots to be different," recalls Cantor. "I took each spot as a blank canvas that could be practical yet funny with natural, real characters."
The result is a a comedic - and highly effective - antidote for the urge to smoke.

The pillowcases proved such a hit with the guys that hundreds more were printed and sold in D.Vice sex stores as a continuation of the promotion.
