TV ad of the month shortlist: Carlton Draught; ‘Dickhead’; Earth Choice, Honda; TED

The finalists for the first round of Mumbrella’s TV ad of the month award can today be revealed.  

The shortlist includes two controversial ads – the Carlton Draught “Tingle” ad by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne which was pulled  after a few days by the brewer’s senior management and the “Don’t Be A Dickhead” road safety ad for VicRoads.

As we reported last week, the competition will each month seek out the best video ads that launched in any given month. Because March was the first month of the competition, we have also allowed leeway for ads that first ran in late February.

The shortlist has been drawn up based on self nominations, Mumbrella’s own choices and reader submissions. The winners are decided by Mumbrella readers.

The competition is sponsored by Dubsat.

(TVCs are eligible whichever screen format they first ran on including TV, cinema and the web.)
