Brake and Y&R engineer some emotional reunions to draw attention to the impact of dangerous driving

The ageing process is an area of fascination for many (as evidenced by a recent Getty Images campaign showing the ravages of time on four celebrities). And Y&R found some success with its last reunion campaign for Land Rover.

Swanndri freshens up with a dose of rural, Ellis-inspired irreverence

Marc Ellis has carved out a good niche as a loveable Kiwi rogue and, as a result, he's certainly not unaccustomed to working as a corporate mascot. Most recently that's meant work for Toyota's Top to Bottom and HRV and now Christchurch agency Simpatico has harked back to his mischievous laddish heritage in a campaign for classic Kiwi brand Swanndri.

TVNZ and MediaWorks are always competitive, as the rather confrontational comparative promo TV3 ran after the Japanese earthquake showed very clearly. But this was taken to a new level on Sunday when TVNZ sent out a press release saying 60 Minutes had "lost almost half its audience since March and almost 300,000 viewers per week since February". Embarrassingly, the figures TVNZ used were wrong and, understandably, MediaWorks is none too pleased.
