AND THEN THERE WAS SIX: D&AD PICKS COREY CHALMERS FOR DIRECT JURY


It appears New Zealand is definitely one of the flavours of the month at D&AD in London, confirming a sixth Kiwi juror for next year's awards. Corey Chalmers from TBWA\Whybin will be on the Direct jury. The only negative is there are now two agencies - Saatchi and TBWA\Whybin - with two jurors, but them's the breaks. With six jurors, NZ is placed equal 6th (with France) in terms of jurors invited, behind the UK, USA, Australia, Germany and Singapore.

I just rang Corey to say congrats, but his phone cut out as he was entering Showies for a celebratory lappy from Chantel the trainee lapdancer from Birkdale.

Well done Corey. A carton of Malboro, a 16 year old single malt, and a box of Lego from Duty Free please.

Amazing how things change.

Well done Corey. Just remember who put you there... remember to mention my name at the judging... you know... "Jason Ross is a good guy" to Droga and all that. Corey, corey, I'm like that old coach in 'Rocky'. Just remember about me. I've been good to you. I've always believed in you. Throw some scraps my way... mate, mate.

Don't think you're getting your name on the credits though.. just want some advice that's all. Mate, Corey you still there? Corey, you remember when we worked on that ANZ campaign. the one with brains. the puppet Corey, the puppet, you remember? Well mate, One Show robbed us. Time to tell all those bigwigs who's boss. Deal to them Corey. Saatchis London will not be in 2007's D&AD annual if you know what I mean. The cat is out of the rooster... the dogs are in the kennels... mate, mate, that's code Corey. *wink* I once borrowed a DVD shots reel from Mike O and didn't return it. Haha. Loser. Gotta go pee.
