Ads of the Week: 26 April

Who's it for: Meridian Energy by Barnes, Catmur & Friends and Fish&Clips

Why we like it: To paraphrase, Notorious B.I.G once rapped that more money meant more problems. But according to Meridian, more money actually means more time to spend on a whole lot of fun. The series of ads are simple, short and to the point, but with a suave Jeremy Wells and his handsomely attired pug by his side, the videos serve as a memorable reminder of Meridian's offerings. 

Who's it for: Boundary Road Brewery by TBWA

Why we like it: Like any good sequel nowadays, Boundary Road Brewery announced the return of its Chocolate Moose Chocolate Porter with a rather dramatic visual offering. We love the pulsating soundtrack and earthy imagery, presenting what is essentially a man dressed as a moose in a tantalising veil of mystery and intrigue. We're not totally convinced as to the taste of a chocolate flavoured alcoholic beverage, but at least BRB's Wes Anderson-style humanimal does the job of sparking some intrigue.

Who's it for: Whittaker's Chocolate by Assignment Group

Why we like it: Whittaker's latest innovative endeavour—chocolate toffee milk—harks back to the good ol' days of careful artisanal craft. The video's focus on the worn out hands and vintage tools gives it a classic and restrained elegance that stands out in today's fast-paced, hyperactive advertising world. And while no chocolate is shown in the video, it creates an appetite for the new chocolate and toffee blend.
