The Gruen Transfer Finale

Monday, August 11, 2008

In case you missed it a few weeks ago, one of my favorite things to watch this summer has been The Gruen Transfer, and Australian public TV show dissecting advertising.

On the finale, the panel looked at some of the ads that won awards at the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival.

Here's the winner, a spot by the English chocolate manufacturer Cadbury. I dare you to watch it just once.

Thanks to you, we spent an evening not long ago watching many episodes of TGT - great stuff. We saw this commercial months ago - the boys couldn't get enough and would ERUPT in laughter when the gorilla started drumming. Good stuff... except for the life of me I couldn't remember what the commercial was for. Oh well.

That's great: the boys crack up when the gorilla starts drumming. That's all I've been doing for days. They're kids; I'm 32.

That's really great. Really.
