Matchbox 2006 - one is produced by an agency... one is possibly photoshop only by Miami ad students and wins an Andy 2006. Which one came first? Check these out..

We posted the Danish matchbox bus ad that ran November 2006 back then.

Looking through the 2006 Andy awards, I found this guy in the student win category. Brainsync!

    Nothing new here. I did a similar campaign for a plant nursery in '87 except I had a green hand "picking up" a delivery van as the client was "Green Fingers" nursery.
