WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Hurrah for the Advertising Standards Authority, 58 mins 4 secs
which has thrown out the complaints - all 26 of
them - that the Virgin Atlantic ad featuring a group
of glamorous female flight attendants is sexist.
What drab and humourless lives these people must lead.

Amid the gloom, it's comforting to see Adam & Eve, 44 mins 50 secs
which has added John Lewis to its list of quality
wins, prove there's still room for a high-pedigree
start-up.

Is the City's loss becoming adland's gain? Agency 32 mins 14 secs
recruiters say a lot more bright sparks are turning
to them rather than heading for the Square Mile.

Too bad Project Kangaroo has been blocked by the 14 mins 27 secs
Competition Commission. It might have provided the
impetus agencies needed to invest in digital.
