I've watched this ad several times now before posting and I'm still not sure why Hyundai and its advertising agency has such utter contempt for their target audience.

Gavin Armstrong from Lucky Iron Fish & the Cannes Lions award

By now you've heard about the controversy surrounding the Lucky Iron Fish Cannes Winner - where several people, and some agencies, are claiming that Geometry Global didn't deserve the PR & Product design lions. One of the protesting voices is Gary Tranter, co-founder of Singapore advertising agency Arcade, who shot a short content film for Google about the Lucky Iron Fish co.

Adland: 
 

Dr Charles' Lucky Iron Fish isn't as fishy as you might think.

Every year in Cannes something wins a Grand Prix, and every year immediately after, this grand prix is called into question. It's simply not Cannes Lions without a little controversy, and this year the dubious honor fell to the Lucky Iron Fish idea, from Geometry Global's Dubai office.

Since then, we reviewed two new pieces: Cash For Gold Lions, and The Cannescellation.

Frauenzentrale Zürich - Women should not be worth less - (2015) #Glasslion shortlist

Yes, I know that puns are bad, but clever wordplay is fun and the use of male/female endings in German in this idea is quite cute.
