TVCs of the Week: 26 February

Who's it for: NZ Pork by Ogilvy and Curious

Why we like it: The pig is a wonderful, magical animal, but there are some engrained perceptions about 'the other white meat' and imported swine is common in New Zealand. Enter this series of three ads that do a good job of putting local pig back in the picture.

Who's it for: Southern Cross by Barnes, Catmur & Friends and 8com. 

Why we like it: There's a dollop of cheese with the escaped lion and the main character's various pratfalls, but for an ad with a sports star in an acting role, it's pretty good. Plus, it's actually trying to do some good by prompting people to take practical steps to improve their health.'s it for: Sorted by GSL Network, Doublefish, 8com and Yukfoo.

A new campaign by Rogue Society Gin, via Motion Sickness, declares they have ‘made a name for themselves’ and the New Zealand company doesn’t just mean figuratively. After an international scuffle with an American brewing company that had a beer called 'Rogue', the company has rebranded to be Scapegrace Dry Gin to better promote its product overseas.
