Youtube VideoWho's it for: Rexona by Naked and Curious.

Why we like it: Depending on your viewpoint, the last Rexona spot that aired around the Rugby World Cup was either overwrought and overly earnest or powerful and beautifully shot. The follow up is fairly earnest as well, but Darryl Ward's made it look purty in black and white and the slightly more casual approach works for us.

Youtube VideoWho's it for: Telecom by Saatchi & Saatchi and Prodigy

Why we like it: A simple idea, well executed—and there's even a dose of sexy vampire-related humour. Extra points for the lead character's rapid line spitting and the numerous attempts it probably took to get it right.
