by Ad Feature. One Superhero and two Heroes — Irish Examiner, Savanna and Charles Schwab — and an in-studio chat with ECD Adam Weber regarding SAB’s latest powerful social marketing campaign, “Be the Mentor”, from Joe Public.
For the Wall of Fame or Shame:
- Sizakele Marutlulle hands out the rare Superhero to Chemistry, the ad agency which conceptualised the Irish Examiner’s massively moving, yet brilliantly simple, print tribute to the late All Black rugby star, Jonah Lomu.
- Andy Rice gives FCB Cape Town’s latest work for Savanna Premium Cider a Hero… and wonders if it could spawn a whole newcatch phrase in the same way that Bells did, and
- Jacob Moshokoa gives the Hero thumbs-up to a Charles Schwab Wealth Management TV ad he saw while in New York recently.
Enjoy the show!
