Here's the best of Brit ad wit from the last 40 years.
2006. Love Saint Wayne or hate him, this was an absolutely stunning billboard for Nike, and for all of England. Ad agency: Wieden & Kennedy London.
1975. Hilarious. Ad agency: Collett Dickenson Pearce & Partners
2001. So cute and so clever. Ad agency: RKCR/Y&R
2001/2002. Club 18-30 was Club Med, except exponentially sleazier. The best ads draw the reader in, and then keep him/her there. No campaign has ever done that better than these posters which, upon closer review, are completely harmless. Two more executions below. Ad agency: Saatchi & Saatchi, London.
