Please define campaign for all of us, 2.33pm. In the ambient.new media/not a couple of TVS context.

Well 3 plane stunts would be a campaign. Under Cannes rule 23b, 2 Plane stunts and a helicopter stunt that wasn't a stunt must fall into the mixed media category. I do however know how Paul feels. I too was once misquoted in the media. The woman at Trade and Exchange put $12k instead of $22k for my WRX. I fielded 100's of calls for weeks. Probably the most effective ad I've ever run.

I think the point was John Drinnan should not be trusted - he is the world's worst journalist and would be better suited hacking away on a tabloid.

If your reputation in advertising means anything to you I suggest you don't return his calls. He isn't interested in what you have to say - only what he wants to say...

You've been warned.

eatshit is right - Drinnan is dangerous. If we all ignore him and he'll go away.
