What was the ad that inspired you to get into advertising?

Søren:

This ad was one of the first that really made an impact on me to nudge me into

advertising…

and also drink more beers…

 

Adam:

Hamlet cigar – man in photo booth

 

Mads:

Ended up here by coincidence

 

Teddy:

Can’t remember, probably a Volkswagen poster.

 

Mikey:

Seeing my first advert in the real world

 

Rob:

Can’t remember. We always used to sing “The red car and the blue car had a race” in

the playground, so maybe the evil advertising seed was being planted in our young

minds.

 

Ed:

Dairy Milk Gorilla – Fallon

 

Marcella:

Wieden & Kennedy advertising.

 

Tom E.B.:

The ad that actually inspired me to get into advertising wasn’t an ad. It was the

promise that I could write and draw all day instead of getting a real job. Then

obviously I saw – Think Small and started to dig deeper from there. The ad I identify

most with is probably the classic old spice one as me and that dude have many things

in common. We both take showers for one thing.

 

Clarissa:

There’s a few I really really love, It’s difficult to say just one. One of my favourite

campaigns is the Harvey Nichols ‘Sorry I spent it on myself’. All of their advertising is

consistently so on point. I also love the Marmite Neglect campaign for it’s humorous

and satirical tone.

This french perrier ad that couldn’t get out of my head.

Tom M:

Hello ladies. Look at these words, now back to these ones. Now look at these words,

now back to these ones. Sadly, I can’t write as well as Eric Baldwin. But if I stop trying

to be original and copy his style, I could pretend that I can. Where am I? I’m in my

bed, thinking about why I can’t write funny copy like he can. Look down, what’s in

your hand? I don’t know, I’m not there. Look again, it’s probably not changed.

Anything is possible when you go to SCA, I’m still in my bed. Doodoo-doo-doo-doo-

doo-doodoo

Georgia:

Guinness Surfer Ad (with Horses) 1998.

 

Lucy:

Snickers, you’re not you when you’re hungry. The Australian construction workers

one…

 

Eytan:

The ad that inspired you to get into advertising?

Kenco Coffee- script was genius. Two women indirectly talking about possession-

status. I wanted to write stuff like that.

 

Alex M:

The Three advert with the singing cherry. Made no sense when I was 8 years old,

makes even less sense now. Brilliant.

 

Jezza:

Nike – Tim Riley 1993

Michael Jordan 1 / Isaac Newton 0

 

Nina:

Doing research for my dissertation at the advertising archives, it was a poster from

the inter-war period which was advertising women to join the workforce.

 

Lawrence:

I don’t really do ads. My inspiration for a career in advertising was either the

stereotypical ‘Mad Men’ or perhaps the novel ‘Money’ by Martin Amis – both for all

the wrong reasons.

 

Stephen:

Nike. Eric Cantona. “Au revoir”.

The Cillit Bang ads. Pure gold.

 

Ashley:

Anything from early days BBH.
