Rather than simply contributing to the extensive canon of big data worship, Shane Gibson, the owner of data intelligence agency OptimalBI, has launched a topical campaign that aims to give a visual representation of the type of information that can be extracted from big data. Hosted on a specially dedicated microsite, the campaign will give a data-driven comparative analysis of key poltical figures in the lead-up to this year’s election.
Of note this week on Ads@6, Magnum puts out a couple of teasers for the ‘golden age of ice cream’; Olivio changes its name to Bertolli and gets hip with the lingo; Domino’s releases a new lunch-time sandwich (and the year’s worst press release to go with it); and Tourism Queensland takes the prize for what is quite possibly the most cringeworthy jingle ever to be heard on New Zealand television, snatching it off Suzuki (see the ousted winner near the end of this clip). And how could we forget Stacey Jones, who gives a bravura performance for Instant Finance and even hangs out with his own cardboard cut-out. A triumph! A tour de force!
