by Ad Feature. Andy Rice and Sizakele Marutlulle are joined by EWN online editor, Sheldon Morais, to share heroes and zeros for the week. The team weighs in on the global Volkswagen scandal but focus is also given to King James Group for its Grand Prix win at the recent IPRA Awards for Sanlam’s One Rand Man campaign.
Rice asks King James art director, Cameron James, and creative director, Mike Wilson, “What made it so special?”
For the Wall of Fame or Shame:
- Marutlulle Zeroes a #SaveWater print ad for Department of Water & Sanitation,
- Morais Zeroes a TV ad for the latest Ikea catalogue in Italy, from Auge Headquarter, and luckily
- Rice saves the day with a Hero for Gumtree’s latest TV ad!
Enjoy the show!
