Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Cannes (part one). Is British advertising simply 2 hrs 10 mins
misunderstood by the rest of the world? They don't
seem to get it. Too sophisticated, perhaps? Or
(whisper it) are we just not good enough? But there's

Cannes (part two). Where are you staying? 1 hr
Competing to have the biggest yacht or flashest villa
has been replaced by competing to have the cheapest
hovel to lay your head. YMCA? Pah, mine's a tent.

seem to be endearing itself to agencies (again).

Fallon's latest Orange Gold Spot ad. It stars Juliette 1 min
Lewis. But is Fallon's work as good as Mother's stuff?
