PEOPLE’S JURY



Nike was this week’s winner by a long way. The rest of the field were

tightly grouped, receiving less than 20 per cent of the vote, with the

new Astra work coming in last.



1. Nike (Wieden & Kennedy) 55 per cent



2. Lilt (Mother) 14 per cent



3. Fox’s Biscuits (St Luke’s) 14 per cent



4. Virgin Atlantic (Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe) 12 per cent



5. Vauxhall Astra (Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe) 5 per cent



In our swingometer poll this week, Mad Frankie Fraser, the new Campari

enforcer, failed to win industry approval, with 68 per cent of

respondents saying he should not be fronting an ad for the drink. Asked

whether the plans to curb the Advertising Standards Authority’s powers

were a good idea, a massive 78 per cent said ’no’ to any changes.
