Nah, Mojo hasn't exactly been on fire as of late. Did anyone see that Diamond Pasta campaign in Campaign brief done by Karl and Derrick with pasta made into faces? Oh lord, what an insight.

Have you seen the Landmines concept. It's by far the best piece of work out of mojo ever. And that's saying something.

And if Saatchi is on fire I suggest someone puts it out before it does any more damage.

A question should be asked... how many sauce packets were made with the image on it? Or was it lasered onto a couple of hundred stickers and stuck on a few in a Denny's in Howick. I like it but it's TOTAL scam.

Saatchi is on fire alright, just like it was in the 80's. Actually I think it's still in the 80's.

To be honest from an outsider person who doesn't work in one of the top four in town, all the shops are really powerful at the moment. If anything I'd rank them,

1. Saatchi
2. DDB
3. Mojo
4. Colenso

I don't think Mojo has quite got what Saatchis does at the moment. I haven't seen any great TV spots out of Mojo whereas there's a couple from Saatchis, DDB, and Colenso. Delisio and Sensations and Coastguard aren't on the same level.

I want to see Mojo do good work on big clients.
To fuck with sauce packets and shit.
Do a good Coke ad or something and then everyone will shut the fuck up.
Until then, there not hot.

His spelling is fine.

It was actually a grammatical error, dickballs.

Hear hear with 'fuck sauce packets'. Shit like that is great icing on the cake to nab a Dm lion or something but when you're only doing fringe shit like that for scammy charities your management is seriously fucked.

The only thing that's hot at Saatchi is the telly department :)

Who is Saatchi trying to kid they've got a spread in CB with about ten charity ads that are pretty seriously crap most of which are so derivative that it's like looking at last years cannes winners regurgitated by an ad axis student. At least Mojo's charity work isn't scammy AND crap.

Au contraire Sauce packet boy, I thought most of Saatchis work was pretty fresh and nice. The only one that I scrunched my face up at was the Ugly chick campaign for Amstel lite. Toby must've been having an off day on that campaign.

You've got a job as a creative and that's the best you can do as a comeback? Nick, time to overhaul the bunch of hacks you have in there.

Hats off to Mike and Toby I say. Great work for big brands like TVNZ, Toyota, Telecom and DB. Truly awesome work for small brands like Reef and Bose. And I count three charity clients in that CB spread; Womens' Refuge, NZ Blind Foundation and WWF. So what's wrong with doing charity ads anyway? Mojo's CB spread last year had fuck all but charity stuff - Amnesty , Coastguard, Auckland City Mission. Oh sorry, there were a couple of ads for chips too. No competition in my book. Colenso would be a close second. Mojo joint fifth.

How can a bunch of 14 year olds at Mojo be hacks?

As for the Coke stuff. Well, we all know Coke is a khunt to work on with a miserable approach to work.

Coke's just there to pay Nick's salary. And pay for any other London creative who happened to drink beer with Nick at the Pussy and Tomcat in Soho.

Lets see how Nick's hacks do at Cannes, One Show and D&AD this year. Terribly I'd imagine. Bet you they're really shitting themselves without your support.

Why does everyone hassle Mojo for putting out great work when everyone else is putting out shit. Honestly I don't work at Mojo but the whole "lets pick on Mojo because they are better then us" is wearing thin.
If you don't like the sauce packets do something better.
And if you are going to hate, take the anon off. I remember when this buisness was fun and the jealous people just tried harder.

I don't think the sauce packet idea is brilliant cos' it only ran in the backs of sauce packets in The Paddington. I'd love to see the print figures for it. I think infinitely better work is being done on legit clients by DDB, Saatchis, Colenso and even dare I say it Clemenger as well. That Bluebird sensations campaign - what the fuck? Are they taking the piss. Can anyone say 'Weiden & Kennedy London - Honda ad - close up shots for 30 seconds'? And what's with that campaign with tongues that are other things like a tongue that's a tentacle. That's rubbish that is. You don't need to be a good creative to do ideas like that you just need a good retoucher and photographer.

I liked the amstel ugly chicks stuff but it's really 3 executions of the same idea, same with the sol roofs. saatchis are kickin ass though, no two ways about it.

The CB Hot + Cold Chart is, like the Pope, absolutely infallible. It's been right every year since it started so probably will be again this year. I think most of the agencies in the Red Zone will do OK, including Publicis Mojo (and those illustrated NZ Coastguard print ads that caused such a blog fuss will pick up I'm sure). But let's revisit this debate at the end of the award season in June - agree?
