Youtube VideoWho’s it for: Rexona by Naked and Curious.
Why we like it: Depending on your viewpoint, the last Rexona spot that aired around the Rugby World Cup was either overwrought and overly earnest or powerful and beautifully shot.

Youtube VideoWho’s it for: Telecom by Saatchi & Saatchi and Prodigy
Why we like it: A simple idea, well executed—and there’s even a dose of sexy vampire-related humour. Extra points for the lead character’s rapid line spitting and the numerous attempts it probably took to get it right.
