The Ikea ad was made by Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Miami. This is the fourth year in a row where the Grand Prix has gone to a US based agency.
The U.S. scored 26 trophies including six Golds this year, thats two more throphies than last year so you may lay the French revenge theory to rest.
Wieden + Kennedy led the way, winning Gold Lions for the spots "Before" and "Angry Chicken," and for the ESPN series "Shelfball." They also won a silver Lion for the Nike spot "Wild Horses" (also known as "herd") and a pair of bronze trophies for the Nike commercials "Rucker Park" and "Young Love."
Goodby, Silverstein & Partners picked up two gold Lions one for Saturn "Sheet Metal" and one for "Birthday" a milk spot.
