Diary: Pick of the Week - DDB London/Philips' Satinelle Ice Epilator

Larissa Vince is charmed by DDB London's TV ad for Philips' Satinelle Ice Epilator:

"This is such a difficult category to do anything interesting in and this ad manages to be endearing, unusual and effective at the same time. It's pretty brave to make a transvestite the star of your ad campaign, the spot is nicely shot and the insight - that men aren't great with pain - is perfect for the product." The ad was created by DDB's Neil Dawson and Grant Parker and directed by Fredrik Bond through Sonny London.
