The French fry is the focus of this latest work for McDonald's as a horde of miniature people living in the depths of a car enjoy a shortlived hope of gaining sustenance from a fallen chip.
The ad shows two guys driving along with the passenger snacking on McDonald's fries. One falls into a gap between the two seats and we are transported into the world below, where a population of tiny people toil and slave in the murky, dust-ridden environment.
Their exclamations and relief at having been given this fry quickly turn to shocked gasps and outrage as a hand plucks the food out and returns it to the passenger in the car.
He then says: "There's no-one who wants this more than me."

Brief: Create a new spot under the campaign "The ridiculously
long-lasting gum". Push the humour to the extreme

A touching moment between father and son takes a satirical turn in this latest work by JWT Puerto Rico for the chewing-gum brand Stride.
A father enters the room of his son, who is preparing to leave home. He begins telling the boy how he wants to give him something that has been passed down from generation to generation in his family.
The heirloom in question turns out to be a piece of chewing-gum, which the father removes from his mouth and gives to his son, who then chews the token with great appreciation.
The spot ends with the strapline: "The ridiculously long-lasting gum."
CHARITYSA - REINCARNATION - SOUTH AFRICA
Creative agency: Lowe Bull Cape Town
Writer: Claudette Browne
Art director: Annie Klintworth
Media agency: n/s
Exposure: Print, outdoor
Lowe Bull Cape Town has created a stomach-churning print campaign threatening people with reincarnation as unsightly bugs if they don't "do something good in this life".
The ads each feature parasitic insects such as maggots, flies and tics. Alongside the creatures are labels describing what the person did in their former life.
The maggot's label reads: "In her previous life Sandra worked for the paparazzi. Look's like she's in on the filthy scoop now."
The executions urge consumers to "do something good" by visiting the website www.charitysa.co.za, which represents all of South Africa's charities in one place.

Director: Terri Timely
Post-production: The Mill
In a follow-up to its sexy animal ad for Orangina Naturally Juicy, Fred & Farid Paris has created two new spots for Orangina Light featuring some of its anthropomorphised characters in human environments.
In the first spot, the giraffe character, clad in hot pants, is shown rollerblading along the beach with two girlfriends.
She quickly alters her course, however, when an attractive guy walks past, chasing him down and eventually bringing him back over her shoulder.
The second spot sees the hyena character outside a cafe laughing hysterically with her girlfriends as a female passer-by loses her heel and trips.
