Big Awards 2008: Financial, Corporate & Utilities

"'Do you mind if I strangle you with this silky (branded) thong?' the blue-eyed movie star asked. 'Not at all,' the man from Orange replied, sitting at the giant poolside clapper-board desk, '... so long as you look at me while you're doing it.' The Financial and Corporate category will never quite be the same again. Thank you Mother."
