BK's pugilistic piece de resistance reigns supreme in October

20782The Burger King KO ad, which appeared the day after David Tua knocked the stuffing out of Shane Cameron has been awarded the Newspaper Advertising Bureau's October ad of the month.

Y & R created the ad and Paul Courtney from Colenso BBDO, Rob Jack from Special and Vaughn Davis from Y&R (who, in case you're wondering, abstained from the final selection) did the judging and said: “It was a great, very effective use of newspapers' short lead time, being able to push that ad out so fast against a tight deadline”, the judges said.

Kiwi entrepreneur looks to shake up the recruitment market with video CVs

Earlier this month, a young Auckland professional made headlines for using Facebook to try and land his dream job.
