Who's it for: Lotto 'Lucky Dog' by DDB and The Sweet Shop

Why we like it: We laughed, we cried, we cried a little bit more and then we laughed again. The latest Lotto campaign is certainly a big, expensive-looking cinematic journey. And it's nigh-on impossible not to have your heart strings tugged by the extremely impressive main canine, Wilson. It's the kind of epic tale—and, given the high production standards, possibly the kind of production budget—that would presumably warm the cockles of the old story-telling advertising guard.
