Abbott's laudable advertising habits

David Abbott, the Abbott in what was Abbott Mead Vickers and what is now AMV BBDO, once said that "words for me are the servants of the argument and on the whole I like them to be plain, simple and familiar". He abided by that belief throughout his career, and created some of the world's best advertising. So after he died over the weekend at the age of 75, Droga5 Sydney paid tribute to him by riffing on one of his best-known pieces of work.

XXX! Hot slats! XXX!

Apparently there's a lot of porn on the internet. As all the staff at StopPress are pure as the driven snow, we're not sure if this is true. And we're also unaware if Hotmalm.com, which takes a unique approach to showcasing Ikea beds, is modelled on the content and headlines of certain adult sites.

Telecom and Droga5 answer a few curly customer queries with new straight-talkin', animal-heavy website

The 'new Telecom' carries with it a fair bit of baggage, some of it well-deserved and based on its legacy, some of it based on misperceptions and a general lack of understanding about the oft-confusing telco realm. And in an effort to address some of those issues, Telecom has taken the fairly brave step of opening itself up to the masses and launching a new website called www.whytelecom.co.co.nz that's part PR campaign, part customer service innovation and part public service announcement. And, in quintessential Telecom fashion, it's gone heavy on the animals.

Irish eyes are still smiling as O'Sullivan takes over Droga5 reins—UPDATED

We broke the story about Andrew Stone leaving Droga5 on Friday to spend more time with his family and do some consultancy work. And that high-profile departure, combined with the recent loss of its foundation client ASB to Saatchi & Saatchi, led to a fair bit of speculation that Droga5 was in a bit of trouble. But Mike O'Sullivan, who has stepped up to fill the leadership role, says the doors are still well and truly open and, with a few new clients and a new management team, the agency is poised for growth.
