WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Juan Cabral and Fallon. While the agency basked in 4 mins 51 secs
the glory of 11 gold Arrows, the punters asked:
"When is Cabral leaving to pursue his directing career?"

That Transport for London ad. Yep, WCRS's effort 37 mins 12 secs
to get drivers to look out for cyclists has sparked
outrage owing to its parity to the work of one
Professor Daniel J Simons.

Nick Bell is back, this time at DDB. Gossip mongers 29 mins 44 secs
see it as a threat to the agency's existing ECD
Jeremy Craigen. However, it's less controversial
than that; DDB's just hiring heavyweight talent.

Ogilvy's embarrassing U-turn. What a mess. The 18 mins 2 secs
agency's creative heads will no longer have to report
into the MD, now they can go straight to the CEO.
