Vodafone’s cheeky wee number deemed February’s best

Not surprisingly, Telecom has been on the receiving end of a few XT related barbs in recent times. But not just from consumers. Its competitors have also been very happy to oblige with a few barbs of their own. And this cheeky wee number from .99 for Vodafone was deemed good enough to take the NAB newspaper ad of the month title for February.

The judges were Danielle Richards, from DDB, and Mick Stalker, from Colenso BBDO. They said (in unison): “Very topical and good use of the medium in a creative way”.
