PEOPLE’S JURY



It was a very close thing in our Favourite Ad poll this week, which has

ended in a tie with two of the runners-up fairly close behind:



1. Source (Mother) 26%



2. Levi Strauss (BBH) 26%



3. Sunday Business (DMB&B) 25%



4. Bodyform (Roose & Partners) 20%



5. Physio Sport TBWA Simons Palmer) 3%



In the Swingometer this week, we focused on Mirror Group’s decision to

postpone the Sporting Life relaunch and fire its editor. We asked

whether chief executive, David Montgomery, should go in the wake of the

latest controversy to hit the group. 62 per cent said yes.



We also looked at the comments of Channel 4’s marketing boss, David

Brook, who claimed that ad agencies are not able to promote complex

brands such as his TV station. We asked if he was right. It was close,

but 53 per cent voted no.



Finally, we decided to see if CampaignLive users had a better sense of

humour than the readers of this magazine. More than half (56 per cent)

worked out that Harriet Green was being ironic in her column last week -

unlike some of our letter writers this week (see page 22) .
