Scamp said...

which one of those was a Fallon ad?

Lunar BBDO said...

Orange.

By the way, we thought we had licked Fallon's rear end much more than Scamp has.

If we were going to redress the balance, we might say that we're delighted that Fallon has dropped their house style of 'shaggy haired male model who shops at Urban Outfitters walks about in a grassy urban environment to the sound of some acoustic guitar music. Endline: XXXXXX is great, isn't it?'

Scamp said...

Ah, of course.

Well, I work quite a bit on Vodafone, so it wouldn't be fair of me to slag off the Orange campaign.

It is shit though.

Charlie Brooker for Prime Minister.

careful scampy.
or they'll kick you out from the pay-roll.

Scamp said...

Come on, anonymous, I'm not biased towards Fallon. Why would I be? Bravia. Skoda. Cadburys... it's just a fact they're doing the best work right now. Or do you think someone else is?

Yeah, but as Charlie pointed out they also poo from time to time.

Let's not forget the PR catastrophe that was that Ask.com campaign.

Would be fair to keep the scale balanced. That's all I'm saying here.

I actually love the Polaris World guy. He could become a real cult figure

Have you noticed how the Polaris World guy makes the sign of a vagina with his hands in every scene?

Dog. Make that a cunt figure then;-)

It could also be a female cock sign, you know to keep things in a pretty motif and whatnot.
