Which agency did it? I had a chuckle at the M. Jackson one. It reminds me a lot of that campaign that Penny Buck and Jane Shearer did for a costume shop while at Colenso in the late 90s.

Whoever did them needs to read a lot about how to finish an ad professionally. I've seen some ads shot on digi-cam that look very polished. These ads however look like they were filmed and sound edited by someone who graduated in 'film studies' from Southland Polytechnic.

Good point. There are even a few free filters for iMovie that produce a better result.

In fact - an interesting way of grading if you don't have any cash is to master straight to VHS then suck it back into your mac and spit it out as your quicktime viral. At the very least you won't get that cold unfriendly dv feel.

I agree with 'S', whoever he/she is.

All they need is a good grade, a proper sound job, and a long session on the edit machine.

So, who did it again? It's one of the worst cases of scam I've seen in ages. Close to the all time worst scam done by McCann's with Neil our IT guy dressed up as a pedo vicar in some guys' bedroom.

It's just so rubbish when agencies like Lowe, Saatchis, Mojo, Colenso, MTC, Ogilvy, Clemenger, Y&R, JWT, DDB, Grey, WRC and M&C do this sort of scammy thing.

They're funny and if they looked polished we'd all say how could a costume company afford it bla bla.

You get the ideas and they make you laugh. Job done.

Beats that well polished predictable butt cheek thing from a while ago hands down.

Dear whoever you are, you should realise that your consistant lack of capitalisation reveals that you're just having a conversation with yourself.

I don't get it. If I was with my kid and saw MJ, I would be like:

"Hey MJ, have you met my son? Check out his blonde hair and big blue eyes."

Ka-ching! Next thing you know, I'm fucking rich, my son might be a little fucked up, but I can afford the therapy anyway.

It's so lame that people don't look for opportunites in situations like this. That would have been gold mother fuckers.

I went to a couple of ddb's Friday meetings. James rammed very expensive international ads down everyones throats for wayyyyy too long. If this was you James, now you know it just isn't that easy, even a million dollar production budget wouldn't save these. David Bell would have given us the strap for this.

I dressed up as a dominatrix once and I had Mal Maninga come up to me in a gay bar and stick his cock in my mouth and made me 'bitch suck it'. Afterwards, I told him that I was a skinny white guy who worked in advertising and he didn't recognise me. Now that's a convincing costume.

To make crap. Take an average junior planner, add an average agency and a creative trying desperately not to disappear down the gurgler. Not exactly a product truth either, First Scene outfits are complete pants.

Try doing good ads, for real clients.
