RSVPs for the APN Outdoor Summer Party have closed and almost 400 industry folk have registered to attend the Friends in High Places soiree next Thursday. However, in shameless advertising fashion, sales director Kent Harrison has taken advantage of the remaining demand and opened his own unofficial RSVP list. So if you want to get on it, check out the video they made—and be prepared to provide bribes.
Who's it for: Kiwibank by Assignment Group and National Park
Why we like it: Taking a whimsical, musical approach to promote a fairly serious subject certainly worked for Dumb Ways to Die. And while the song's not quite as catchy as the one penned for Metro Trains, it's similarly well-crafted and would have to take the prize for the best bread-based advertising we've ever seen.
Who's it for: Tui by Saatchi & Saatchi and 8com
Why we like it: Tui has been on a bit of a roll recently, with a big viral hit for its Beer Plumber stunt and the hugely successful Catch a Million campaign. And it's keeping the Beer Plumber alive with a simple spot that shows how such a system would inspire positive neighbourly relations.
