Duracell - Lasts Longer - print, South Africa

Ogilvy Johannesburg declare that Duracell "lasts longer". Much longer. While everyone might giggle at this one, the other two inside feel like they're part of another campaign. Also, wind up toys? Doesn't quite reach the heights of the Cannes 2008 Grand Prix winning Energizer "never let their toys die" campaign from DDB South Africa does it?

    Ok, so maybe it's the fact that I might need another cup of coffee but I don't get that first one. The "last longer" line also immediately makes me think of Big Red.

    Come on, sing along! ;)

    And with a proposition like that, all they can come up with is an ad that's, well, frankly shabby.

    Wow! Does that Big Red TV ad bring back memories! Big Red was my favourite brand of chewing gun. And no, it had nothing to do with the advertising. ;)
