Guest Judge: Graham Lang, CCO, Y&R South Africa + Africa

 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   WORLDWIDE    July 31, 2017 14:03 (Edited: August 01, 2017 00:03)
https://www.bestadsontv.com/news/upload/Graham Africa PR.jpg
This week's guest judge is Graham Lang, chief creative officer, Y&R South Africa and Africa.

Winner: Procter & Gamble: The Talk. When a brave client wants to promote a relevant cause, things can easily and quickly go wrong. Like a rouge match in a gas station. All the good intentions in the world can't soften the blow of a poorly conceived and executed idea when broaching the subject of race discrimination. And the bigger the client, the bigger the pressure is to make everything stick just right. This script demanded composed story telling with all the right nuances in perfect harmony. BBDO and their production partners nailed it.

Launching primarily by digital and social, a short launch video was developed that told the story of the USA coming to SA, but only bringing the good bits. It uses tantalising appetite photography of the products, mixed with animation featuring iconic American characters, with a high energy track laid over the top. Launched via social media, in three weeks it had 28k views, 383 reactions and over 400 comments and has played a large part in the incredibly successful launch of the brand in South Australia.

The short film was premiered in London last week at The Mill, who offered their support, hosting a screening of the film, followed by drinks on their roof terrace. Edited by Homespun's Phil Currie, A Girl of No Importance is set in Rome and follows the journey of a 16-year-old girl who has escaped her traffickers. Fleeing the side of the motorway where she is forced to solicit customers, the dangers of her escape are explored through emotion. As Alina finds her way into the city, it is clear she cannot trust anyone, as a corrupt police force means she has no one to turn to. Camilleri has a personal connection with the subject, basing the film on real stories told to her by the girls who are enslaved and forced to work on the Roman motorways.
