The Aussie clichés abound, with a fair whack of our 21 shortlisted TV spots at Cannes featuring beer, babes and BBQs. Our Kiwi contingent is a little more sophisticated, with an art gallery representing one of four NZ spots making the grade.
The Carlton Draught Big Ad via George Patterson Y&R Melbourne has made the list of course, one of half a dozen being considered for the Grand Prix, as has their Carlton MID ‘Blokebots’ spot.
It will come as no shock that Lowe Hunt Sydney’s Lynx Jet campaign has three spots nominated – further speculating talk around Cannes that it is a real contender for the Titanium.
Meanwhile, the joys of barbecuing lamb in the Australian Meat and Livestock spot by BMF Sydney has also been shortlisted.
