Expedia once again showcases the joy of travel/drudgery of modern life with ‘where’s your somewhere?’ campaign
By

The travel industry has been one of the sectors most affected by the rise of e-commerce, with customers increasingly doing their booking of flights, hotels, trips, rental cars and transfers online. Expedia, the world’s largest online travel site in terms of booking volumes, is at the forefront of that shift and, as part of its ‘Out There Starts Here’ campaign, it’s created a number of great ads for the New Zealand and Australian market. Now it’s launched another one that sees the travel dreams of several characters become a reality.

StopGear: Toby Talbot
By

Whether you like it or not, the things we buy can say a lot about us (or, at the very least, can be used by others to make assumptions). And there’s perhaps no item more symbolic of an owner’s personality than the car they drive. Creative types seem pretty keen on interesting cars. So, with all the switcheroos in the automotive space at the moment, we thought it was an opportune time to launch a new section on StopPress that aims to showcase some of the vehicular proclivities of those working in the marketing, advertising and media sectors (and will presumably cement the general public’s view that this industry is infested with rich wankers). Every few weeks we’ll be asking someone in the biz to tell us about their steed and first up is TBWA\’s chief creative officer Toby Talbot and his Volvo P1800.

TBWA\ chronicles Bell Tea’s history, illustrates the sleeve-rolling power of a cuppa
By

According to the ever-reliable Wikipedia, New Zealand has the 45th highest rate of per capita tea consumption, with an average of 0.65 kg downed by each person every year (well behind the English on what is almost certainly a made up number of 68.69 kg per year, although the UK Tea Council gives the top spot to the Irish). Bell Tea is hoping more of that will come from its two factories and to help do that it’s launched a new 60 second TVC via Whybin\TBWA that celebrates the long history of the brand and the performance-enhancing properties of tea.

Trade Me takes to TV with focus on new goods, therapy possibly required after seeing naked fat man on bike
By

Trade Me kicked off back in 1999 when Sam Morgan saw an unmet need for an online marketplace selling used goods. That’s largely still how consumers see it. But around 40 percent of its listings are new goods, so it is aiming to draw attention to that aspect of its business in the lead up to Christmas with a campaign via Whybin\TBWA featuring naked fat men, well-coiffed dogs and apparent rectal probes.

Probe Toby: TBWA\’s chief creative officer agrees to live lie detector test for ‘Results don’t lie’ climax, asks for reader questions
By

Whybin\TBWA’s ‘Results Don’t Lie’ campaign for the 2013 New Zealand Effie Awards put a few creative big-wigs from New Zealand’s advertising industry in a dark room, gave them lie detector tests and asked them about the legitimacy of their most awarded campaigns. The results have been comical and controversial in equal measure and, with awards night looming, the agency has stepped it up a notch, announcing that one of its own—​chief creative officer Toby Talbot—will take to the stage for a live polygraph test as part of the evening’s proceedings.
