Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
World Cup fatigue setting in a month before the 1 hr 1 min
tournament even starts. Those Carlsberg ads are pretty
good but for every good football-related spot, there
seem to be about ten that are dross.

Jim Thornton's Eulogy launch. Is there really a 54 mins
market for a death mag and, if so, can the brand be
pushed into wider services?

Those new Nationwide ads featuring the Little 37 mins
Britain characters. Is it really a great idea to bring
back characters a few years after they ceased to be funny?

The senior creative duo Phil Cockrell and Graham 12 mins
Storey become the latest to make for the Fallon exit
door. Will the agency's work suffer?
