    Taxi's Viagra spots won gold last year...

    At the AICP Show in New York a couple of weeks back, many of these spots were shown on a big screen in a theater at the Museum of Modern Art packed with perhaps a thousand ad folks (some more 'ad' than others). The Carlsberg spot by far drew the greatest response -- people cheered and applauded like they did for no other spot screened, and I was one of them. I think the spot has a very good shot at the GP.

    Among other possibilities not listed here, although I admit it's a long shot, is Nike's "Kid Tiger," which has a lot of heart, and also got a great response at the AICP Show....
