Consumer_SillyChristmas+Creatives.jpgAnother win for Ogilvy Wellington duo, Nigel Richardson (left) and Steve Cooper (right) who took November's ORCA with their 'Silly Season' ad for Consumer NZ.

The duo also won the August ORCA for Consumer NZ's 'Appliance Nightmares' campaign.

Judges commended the well-produced script and performances, describing it as "clever, funny and nicely focused."

And staying in Wellington, a Merit was also awarded to Clemenger BBDO's Brigid Alkema and Mitch Alison, for their NZTA Radio Legends campaign.

The ORCAs acknowledges this month's judges: David Bell (Advertising Maestro!), Trevor Plant (AUT) and Rory McKechnie (DDB).

Not to take anything away from Nigel and Steve but it was just an ok ad following the well worn, funny bit funny bit, and here is the working bit on the end rule.
But the merit award seemed like a really new idea. A new use of the medium.
Surely the results should have been the other way round?
And no, i have no ties to Duster and his team in Wellington. Just a fan of radio is all

I'd said:

Nige's (and O Maisey) AC Delco radio series was epic gold. Any links to that?

You're right about that 'I'd said' Genius. Made me want to be a better radio writer.

4th Umpire said:

Mind you 3rd Umpire, the fact that the funny bit is genuinely funny puts this above 99.9999% of "funny" radio ads out there.
