Creative Excellence Fridays - New Zealand Humour

First off, we'd like to take a moment and ... drum roll please... announce the unveiling of our new website Ontrack Congrats to Heronymo Allen and Dan Sampson for all their hard work.

Also a thank you to Dave Boire of DBAudio for having me to his funky studio diggs earlier this week. Dave is the Toronto chairperson for the Mobius Awards and he kindly asked me to be one of the television judges. We'll feature the best of show winners in next week's blog.

Now on to this weeks' blog.
We've all marveled at British humour over the years. Monty Python, Little Britain et all. Well it turns out the "colonies" brought some of that edge with them. Below is a commercial produced in New Zealand by DDB New Zealand to promote Sky Cable. It is definitely out there, but I have to say I like it, alot. It's the kind of commercial you want to see more than once, and when it comes on you say to a friend in the next room, "come here.. come here.. it's on..come see this". Which, in all honesty is the biggest compliment you can pay.

Warning, this may prove a bit distasteful for some. But you definitely will remember it and the uniqueness will transfer to brand recognition too.

Coming up on Monday, adnews from the Google camp. They have chosen another monster to compete with. Details on Monday. Have a great weekend.
