Well, I doubt the customer found it pointless, as for merits, silver at the ICADs usually means a very sharp campaign that delivered. And that it did.

Amazed you picked such a good, subtle campaign to slam with so much drivel out there. The outdoor stencil look stuff was really good.

(I don't work for he agency, in fact I would indirectly be in competition to them)


I'd be interested to see the criteria....can't see the category winners properly either, you have to email someone for user and password?
Where is the data to suggest that Irish pub has seen an increase in customers due to the ads? Fair enough if I am wrong, but if it has worked, I'm baffled. Don't see it being subtle either, more pointing out the obvious? In any case, it doesn't convince me why I should go and what's different... with chippers they have a day when fish and chips are half-price, that is a convincing reason to get people to go to chippers.

Pepsi lottery backfired, and people died

In a marketing mistake that surely must rank among the world's worst, Pepsi had announced the wrong number. Instead of a single 1-million-peso winner, up to 800,000 bottle caps marked 349 had been printed. And tens of thousands of Filipinos soon began demanding billions of dollars that Pepsi refuses to pay.

The dispute - on which Pepsi has spent millions of dollars - has sparked a Cola War, Philippines-style. Pepsi records show that at least 32 delivery trucks have been stoned, torched or overturned. Armed men have thrown homemade bombs at Pepsi plants and offices.

In the worst incident, police say a fragmentation grenade tossed at a parked Pepsi truck in a Manila suburb Feb. 13 bounced off and killed a schoolteacher and a 5-year-old girl and wounded six other people.

The broadband one with the smart-arse precocious kids.

The yogurt one with a bunch of bints in a car arriving at a festival in stilleto heels - of course nobody would do that, but these girls are super-girlir and KOOKY!!! They can't walk in the mud so they spot some poor gormless young fella and flutter their eyelashes at him - he unloads all their girlie chick-lit and diet books and creates a path for them with the books, confident he'll get the ride. But those feisty gals storm down the path leaving him bewildered and dejected.
Kunt of an ad.

Which is why people always use it ironically, like you did.

Just was listening to the Dublin does Fridays ad there. What a crap advertising campaign, just shows how idiotic the Vintners association is.. it basically is saying - The pub is great craic and you should be going more, because you're Irish sure. They'd be better off spending money somewhere else

Isn't the point of the campaign to raise awareness to the product? Would you agree that you are now aware of the product?

Hardly a waste of time just because you don't like the product.

Mine has to be the 48 mobile company ads. Seriously right you can only be with them for 4 years for a start and not all people between the ages of 18 and 22 are as described on the ads. 48 go conquer, 48 gtfo more like.
