    Pillsbury Dough Boy was another gem of Hal Mason
    Who made his living working for Walter Lantz, animating illustrated creations.
    In the 1950s a cartoon legend Tex Avery joined their team
    And created a Bandito for Frito's - not the Mexican Anti-Defamation Committee's dream-
    When in 1969 they forced Frito Lay's executives to reevaluate the campaign,
    Who was the famous voice actor we heard when the Frito Bandito sang, before the end of his reign?

    Mel Blanc was also the voice of a rabbit too,
    the one that teamed up with Jordan in 1992.
    In that commercial Bugs was bugged by 4 men.
    They had 8 arms in all, but how many armbands?

    Two! And one player even sports a tattoo
    remember an ad where a bottle would have an affect
    religious folks objected and said they'd reject
    that devilish brew due to the ad heroes tattoo
    What did it read, and what was the brew?

    Wieden & Kennedy released that ad
    showing good will always defeat bad
    speaking of nike and film sets not plush
    who directed the tournament which was labeled hush hush?

    It read 666 the number of the beast, the bottle was Smirnoff, fit for a feast.
    Devildemons played football, and our soccer heroes near greased
    in a film where special effects were spared, not in the least
    Eric Cantona, then footballs high priest
    kicked the winning goal, from which agency was this ad released?

    (sing to Kids in America)

    'twas the Bud, 'twas the Bud, the Bud light in America
    whooh-oh-oh
    Everybody the King of beer it crowned

    Bud lights the naming rights fight
    EU wants the Czech one
    Finland is the battleground
    The finns on the US beer they frowned

    Hot-shot, Bud wins the world-cup rights
    Footiefans drink anything, they'll say never mind
    Who won the foodfight, life is never kind

    Kind hearts don't make a new story
    Kind hearts don't grab any glory

    McDonalds will give the World Cup its sausage,
    much to bratwurst-loving Germany's chagrin.
    But now they can complain in their own language--
    how does Mickey D's new German tagline begin?

    The Advertising show
    Tells you what you should know
    And once had our Adland admin mistress
    As a guest no less.
    But do you know that our famed dame
    Shall be a judge for a contest where the aim
    Is for you to create something high-techy for which newish eclectic magazine-
    its first ever animated or live-action commercial to show off their scene.

    Though I'm not in the bizz, I swear I'm no perv,
    I know that the magazine is Maissoneuve (ouch).
    One of their sponsors brings to my mind trombones,
    because of a number I think of their tones.
    and this good firm's work is not diahrrea,
    they did a display for what thing from Korea? (double ouch)

    (Hope I did that right, I can't resist trivia!)

    I don't drive a Hyundai,
    but a Honda instead.
    Though that's not to say
    that their cars can't, um...shred.
    Now, speaking of shredding,
    let's go back to two wheels
    and land on a helmet that claims
    "It's your head." (ing?)

    Your head and your helmet
    are two different places
    but that campaign
    made Boeri aces.
    Now which famous authors
    got their writing legs
    with "naughty but nice"
    and "go to work on an egg"?

    I'd like to teach the word to quiz
    in perfect harmony

    I'd like to say, the answer is
    Fay Weldon and Salman Rushdie.

    I'd like to pose another link
    In this crafty chain

    So tell me who spilled Cinzano on
    Joan Collins on a plane.

    Leonard Rossiter was the chap
    who spilled the drink on Joanie's lap.

    But which drink's classy name
    was almost killed by our Lorraine?

    I don't know about everyone else but I'm stumped...

    ...Drink...Lorraine...Killed?

    More clues?

    It's cheating really but I'll tell you for now
    you're chasing an ad by Vernon Howe.

    Vernon Howe worked with Terry Howard's script for Campari
    And in the 80s, Howard was a Creative Director at London's Ayer Barker
    At London's Ayer Barker overseeing the famed Salman Rushdie
    And young copywriter star who started at Allen Brady & Marsh to launch his carrer
    Has become a Creative Director for which London ad agency?

    As she told the guy with the suit on

    Lorraine Chase didn't come from Paradise, she came from Luton

    Campari regretted that ad for years and years

    Maybe they should try again...with Britney Spears?

    Everyone knows Beyonce and Britney did an advert for Pepsi

    But which booze did Jay-Z plug with a shout of "NA ZDROWIE"?

    London's TBWA minus the B
    was a different sort of entity.

    & another famed copywriter was the one
    whose firm was their agency in 1971.

    Of course, it'd be too easy just to ask her name.
    At what age did she join the Copywriter's Hall of Fame?

    May 08, 2004

    Inducted at the age of seventy-two
    Is the answer to the question poised by you
    Which is the same year that a renowned ad guy
    Was honored with the same award- I tell no lie.
    The agency he started bears his name in full
    And it recently lost what account featuring an ad icon, but not a bull.

    Major props for tracking down the elusive name,
    but you listed the age for the wrong Hall of Fame.
    She was seventy-two when she joined the Advertising Hall.
    But she was a much younger member of the Copywriter's Hall.

    My mistake is plain to see
    I read it wrong - or just plain forgot- you see
    The true answer is really age forty years of age
    When she was a honored to be an ad sage.
    A revision of the next question is in order
    So I'll give it another go - and make it harder
    In 1998 when Wells, Rich, Greene BDDP closed its doors
    A man by the name of Moss, one of WRG's great creative directors
    Started his own creative shop with who else there?

    It was Stan Dragoti who left with Moss
    To toddle off and become their own boss

    Mr Dragoti, would later aspire
    To make a film about a travelling vampire.

    But who played the count in this strange movie?
    Clue: he plugged Sizzle $ Stir alongside Mr T!

    It's George Hamilton.
    And the chain is done.
