As Frances McDormand said, there are already way too many awards, so one more won't hurt. That's right, campers, it's time for our annual WWW Excellence in Advertising Award for the year 2017. This year we have two strong contenders. The first to be nominated was "Gear of a champion", advanced last spring by the Bank of Nova Scotia to prove that even big banks can be athletic supporters.
The other, first flighted last fall, is "Return of the Snowman", which Walt believes was created by the same agency that did "Winter Warriors", our winner for 2013. Our apologies, but YouTube... or someone... has taken down the video to which that post links. Here's the 2017 version, even better than the first one -- a minute of winter horror for Nissan Canada.
And the winner is... may I have the envelope please... cue drum roll... "Gear of a champion"!
Note from Ed.: We don't really do this every year, just whenever there's something that tickles Walt's funny bone, like the Olex caveman commercial which should have won in 2014 except we forgot.
