BMP DDB’s work for Volkswagen has triumphed again. This week, the

agency’s latest ad for the VW Golf topped our Favourite Ad poll. The

results were:

1. VW Golf (BMP DDB) 39%

2. Danepak (Delaney Fletcher Bozell) 28%

3. Adidas, Beckham (Leagas Delaney) 17%

4. Sony Playstation (TBWA GGT Simons Palmer) 11%

5. Co-op (Partners BDDH) 6%

In the Swingometer, one big issue has been taxing us all this week:

should Glen Hoddle have dropped Paul Gascoigne from the England football

squad? The result couldn’t have been clearer - 83 per cent of you said

the boss done good.

Carat’s managing director, Mark Craze, lost out, however, with 82 per

cent saying they had no sympathy for Craze, who hit out at Channel 5 for

sacking his agency after it helped to launch the channel.

But there was sympathy for BMP DDB with 58 per cent saying that the

decision to drop the agency from the Walkers Crisps account was one the

client, Frito-Lay, would regret.
