Who's it for: Tip Top by Colenso BBDO and The Sweet Shop

Why we like it: Put this in the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' category. It may be filled with an array of summery Kiwi clichés, but clichés tend to become clichés because they're so popular. Also, who cares if it's been done before, because this beautiful docu-TVC really made me want an ice cream (or, more accurately, a road trip). A prime example of the emotional story-telling power that TV still has.

There were a few other good'uns deserving of a mention this week, including the big New World musical by .99, the new Barnes, Catmur & Friends spot for Pams and Mojo's new Speight's ad.

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.
