TVCs of the Week: 21 August

Why we like it: Bumping up the New Zealandness, speaking in way Kiwis can relate to and enlisting James Rolleston as the Vodafone frontman works for us.

And while McKnight has yet to be offered a job at ASB, it’s a sign that the traditional recruitment process of sending in a CV and crossing your fingers may be in for a shake-up.
