BOTAB 2013 gets set to shred

The most important night on the advertising calendar looms once again. And if the Battle of the Ad Bands registration poster is any gauge, it looks like it's going to be a twerk fest this Thursday at the Kings Arms Tavern. So make sure you get your tickets here

Barnes Catmur & Friends' Friends Electric were the worthy winners of the CAANZ/Flying Fish event last year (and they're responsible for the creative this year), so, as the poster asks, "will they back it up like Miley or is it somebody else's turn?"

This year's theme is Big Day Out, and bands will have 15 minutes to perform their magic. Shihad frontman John Toogood will MC the event (and bands will also be performing a Shihad song).

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
