AdLand Round Up 2004- The Year In Review

Toodle-pipski 2004. Bonjour 2005.

2004. What a year. In the US, advertising saw more than it's necessary share of presidental-esque concepts for the likes of Snickers, Miller, Net Zero and others. There was the Superbowl and the infamous halftime wardrobe malfunction. Olympic madness came and went.


It's that time of year again - here comes the AdLand roundup.

Oh yes, it's the season for lists, lists and yet more lists. Our roundup is set to be even longer than last years (part 1, part 2). To chop it up into smaller, easier digestible parts, I'll start with our adland-centric bestest and mostest title-winners. Read more, you might be mentioned.
