Consortium puts a Viking in a Kiwi abode for new Lightbox campaign

Subscription video on-demand is often compared to linear television as a superior alternative that gives users the freedom to watch what they want when they want to, without the annoyance of advertising. Yet, despite these advantages, Kiwi SVOD provider Lightbox still sees value in using the reach of traditional television to spread the news about its offering and has just released a new, somewhat crazy, campaign for Vikings.

So who's got the best offer?

Tui vs Moa: the battle continues

Recently, Tui put up a few Yeah Right billboards that said 'My shout, I've got shares in Moa beer', which was a jab at the fact that its stock price dropped by around 32 percent after it failed to meet its sales targets. And Moa has responded in typically comical fashion by showing how hard it is to get hold of Tui's owners.

Telecom keeps business personal for the SME crowd—UPDATED

While Telecom is currently focusing on the advertising of its major competitor, with proceedings lodged today in the High Court over aspects of what it believes are misleading claims in Vodafone's recent SuperNet campaign, it will be focusing on its own advertising come Sunday night, because it's launching a new campaign for its Business Hubs, the local (and often locally-owned) business-only locations offering services and products to SME customers.

Better, stronger, faster: Consortium embarks on 'year of the Re'

Since it was formed in 2003 and was quickly noticed for its stellar work on 42 Below, Consortium has been an ad agency happy to fly under the radar and steer clear of the media. But after finding some renewed vigour for the ad business and deciding to refocus his energies on the agency he founded, Paul Shale has decided to pin his more strategic colours to the mast by announcing a few changes, including the addition of former director of home at Telecom and director of Yahoo!Xtra Ralph Brayham as a 50 percent shareholder and director.
