Lyndy Stout, Editor of shots said: “For each issue of shots we view almost 2,000 spots from around the world. Some are entertaining, some awful, but the best take our collective breath away. That’s what makes shots so unique. We faced an almost impossible task in choosing the top 100 ads and even more in trying to narrow down the top creatives and directors in the business. But finding out what inspires each of them makes fascinating reading.”

I saw the 'bugger' ad the other day for the first time in years. It amazed me how cool and fresh it still is.
