The 30-second spot, which was shot by Flying Fish and directed by Helena Brooks, features a middle-aged man, dressed in the garb of a stereotypical accountant, dancing awkwardly after having completed a meal from Pita Pit.

After a long period of flying under the radar, Auckland-based food company Tasti Products came out all Kiwiana guns blazing with a cliche-filled online and print campaign in September last year. A few months back it took the next logical step down that path, launching its first ever TVC with a very colloquial remix of OMC's How Bizarre and some completely over the top, almost ironic patriotism. And while some in adland didn't seem too keen on it, consumers seem to be, because the ad has taken out the August instalment of Colmar Brunton's Ad Impact Award.

The mutating Contagion: selling out or savvy strategy?
