statues - five of them for Guinness - at the Clio Awards in New

York.



The top prize, the Grand Clio for TV and cinema, went to DDB Chicago for

its ’wassup true’ spot for Budweiser, a commercial featuring a group of

men who greet each other with ’wassup’.



The print Grand Clio was awarded to DDB Paris for an innovative campaign

for the Volkswagen Lupo, which demonstrates the car’s fuel efficiency by

showing how far it can travel based on the amount of fuel in a cigarette

lighter, a lantern and a jar of paint thinner. A Grand Clio went to

Arnold Communications for its turbonium.com website for Volkswagen.



AMV also picked up the agency of the year award because of its seven

gold, four silver and two bronze statues, most of which were for

’surfer’ and ’bet on black’ for Guinness. ’Surfer’, directed by Jonathan

Glazer through Academy, won a gold for direction, editing and

beverages.



’Bet on black’, directed by Frank Budgen through Gorgeous, won a gold

for cinematography and silvers for editing and direction.
