http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qJuYApNz10As Rebecca Black so famously sung, "It’s Friday, Friday, Gotta get down on Friday, Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend, Friday, Friday, Gettin’ down on Friday, Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend." But today isn't just any old Friday. It's the third Friday the 13th of the year. And to celebrate, Pak 'n' Save decided to have a bit more fun and try to scare the bejeesus out of everyone.
Who's it for: Mitre 10 by FCB and Thick as Thieves
Why we like it: Aside from promoting early morning lawn-mowing, owning the weekend is a good space for Mitre 10 and the first ad shows Kiwis doing their thing (and, ideally, will guilt a few more into making time to doing their chores).
Who's it for: Mountain Dew by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: Over the last few years, Mountain Dew has done a good job of connecting with the youth market through sports. And even though it was released a few months ago, this film shows why.
Who's it for: Ford by JWT
Why we like it: Fairly earnest, but something a lot of parents will no doubt be able to relate to. And a good way for Ford to win a few more Kiwi hearts and minds by showing how broad its sporting support is.
