In the swingometer we asked if the New Zealand agency, Bates Palace, had

the silliest name in advertising. It does, 67 per cent of votes

said.



Last week, Maiden Outdoor issued a profits warning. We asked if this

could be the first sign of recession in the ad industry? It was close,

but 54 per cent of you voted yes.



Last, we asked if the Sun’s sponsorship of the gameshow, Who Wants to be

a Millionaire? is a good investment? No, said 68% per cent.
