Diary: Pick of the Week - DDB London/Volkswagen GTi

DDB London's ad for the Volkswagen GTi puts a smile on the face of Nick Morgan, the creative director of the digital and direct agency Spinnaker: "When I saw this ad using Gene Kelly's famous dance routine in the rain, I Fred Astaired in amazement. Classic footage remixed and reshot using Kelly's face combined with stunning break-dance moves. 'The original, updated' is a simple idea, brilliantly executed with a track I want to hear over again." The ad was written by Martin Loraine and art directed by Steve Jones.
