November's best newspaper ad, says NWA

This months NWA judge Euro RSCG's UK Director of Creativity, Gerry Moira, said about the winning ad:

"There's something joyously irreverent about this ad - the pastiche of the royal commemorative plates, the depiction of Margaret as a playgirl Princess - there's lots to enjoy.
The attention to detail, from the furry handcuffs to the Union Jack thong, is creative and eye-catching and underlines the cheekiness that permeates the whole execution. And it really worked - I actually watched the programme."

VW - Beetle - Force of Good - Print - (USA)

Earlier we pointed out VW's Force of Good website for the Beetle by Arnold Worldwide. Apparently there's a print campaign to go with it. A bit strangely it uses a trading card type strategy (sort of like Miller did a while back). The info on the backs of these cards include: Home, Job, Ride, Bud Vase, Special Powers and Good Deeds. Read on to check it out.

PETA - Your Daddy kills animals - leaflet

With this crazy looking leaflet modeled on scary cartoons, children can read: "Imagine that a man dangles a piece of candy in front of you. As you grab the candy, a huge metal hook stabs through your hand and you're ripped off the ground. You fight to get away, but it doesn’t do any good. That would be an awful trick to play on someone, wouldn't it?"

It has not been well received: Fox News reports "PETA Tells Kids to Run From Daddy"

"This is traumatizing kids by the thousands. There's going to be long-term psychological damage from these kids being exposed to the material that PETA puts in front of them on a regular basis," Martosko said.
