Buddy the boxer dog returns to the small screen in his second ad for Toyota South Africa, starring in this latest work by DraftFCB Johannesburg.

Publicis Conseil focuses on the importance of etymology in this new campaign to promote Orange internet.
The campaign aims to communicate that one word can have many different meanings, with visual representations of everyday scenarios to highly emotional, intense moments played out in contrasting settings.
The term "internet", like the words used in the ad, has also developed a variety of different meanings. The ad urges us to understand that there is "internet" and there is "internet by Orange".
The TV execution is supported by outdoor, digital and print work.

To educate teens on the importance of getting enough milk in their diet, DDB Canada, Vancouver has launched an ad initiative, The Weak Shop, for BC Dairy Foundation.
Several people are shown in situations where standing for any period of time is necessary, from queueing at the bank to waiting to cross at the traffic lights. Young adults are featured throughout the ad with a brief reference to retired people at the end of the spot.
"Chair pants" are promoted as the solution to this "problem", cleverly engineered to stow away on any pair of trousers and assemble when needed. The voiceover explains that feelings of weakness are a common side-effect of not enough milk and offers two litres of milk free when consumers order a pair of chair pants.
The TV spot directs viewers to the website theweakshop.com, where other "helpful" inventions are available to combat low energy and weakness.

Celebrating American masculinity, DDB Chicago saturates this latest work for Budweiser with quintessential male pastimes; sport and beer.
Launching two TV executions called "carrying a round" and "greetings", the work aims to identify with male behaviours, from how men carry drinks to their method of shaking hands.
The first spot shows a man gathering drinks requests as he squeezes along his row at a baseball game. Various methods of carrying drinks back from the bar are then demonstrated.
The second spot features the range of ways men greet one another but concludes that the most universal greeting is made by raising their drinks to each other.
