Better to ask agencies who have worked with Steve what their favourite Steve Bayliss quote is surely?
This is great, and the humour is back. Nicely written and made.
It must be hard living with that level of cynicism 'real person' (I note your comments all have a similar flavour). How about trying to find and comment on something positively, or maybe even offer up a stunning piece of ...
Champaign? Is that a clever play on a celebrated campaign or simple more sloppy spelling?
That's the spirit guys. Just keep pandering. Pat each other on the back, tell the client you really helped bring a tired old brand into lives of real people in an authentic and relevant way. A way which liken the ...

Who's it for: Whittaker's by Assignment Group
Why we like it: Spot Nigella Lawson? Whittaker's has released two new caramel flavours but before they're introduced, the campaign goes back in time to see where it all started. Leading the trip down memory lane is Lawson, whose outfit changes reflect the transition through the decades. It's an interesting insight into the well-loved brand, with information shared about its timeless Toffee Milk flavour, to when the Peanut Slab was invented and the new factories created to keep up with its search for perfection.
Who's it for: Vodafone by FCB
Why we like it: Fancy a sleep-in? Vodafone wants you to enjoy an extra hour of shut-eye on Friday, but it's not just about catching up on sleep. As Anika Moa explains, it's about finding a cure for cancer. The hope is Kiwis will download the DreamLab app, which according to Vodafone, combines the computing power of individual smartphones to create a processing hive to run a large volume of cancer research calculations. Sound confusing? "Rest on that for a second," says Moa.
Who's it for: Lotto by Spark PR & Activate
Why we like it: While we're sure plenty of mothers celebrated Mother's Day with a full bed, we don't expect to see three generations squeezed in together. This cheeky wee spot plays on Jaquie Brown's humour as a way of showing that mother's want time on Mother's Day to enjoy their wee ones—and also a Lotto Tripple Dip.
Who's it for:Genesis by Shine
Why we like it: Ever stop to think we are the first to see the new day? This Genesis spot is a reminder that we are the first out the door and the first back to it. The spot ends on families at home using their smartphones to control energy use, an idea that was first introduced last year in the 'With You. For You.', campaign, that took a tour through the house of the future, with a smartphone at the technological heart of it.
Who's it for: Holden
Why we like it: Last year Holden restyled its brand, moving away from its boganic heritage to a modern, urban target market and this upbeat spot is keeping that ball rolling. While there are still shots of a Holden making tracks up a country-side gravel road, that's balanced by shots of a family in the car as well as young women and men in the driver's seat to represent who the ad calls "the modern explorer".
