Well, if the first clip we posted yesterday that provided a glimpse into the judging for the ADC’s 93rd Annual Awards of Art + Craft in Advertising and Design wasn’t enough to leave our freezing souls envious, here’s round two. Once again, we head back vicariously to Costa Rica, where this year’s judging for the Advertising and Interactive categories of the awards show took place (hell, if the ANDY juries can head to Hawaii, why can’t these folks go someplace exotic?). This time around, we’re greeted by catamarans and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners ECD, Margaret Johnson, who’s heading up the Advertising jury. We’re checking our frequent flyer mileage as we speak.

Goodby, Silverstein & Partners launched this new ad for just in time for tax day deadline yesterday. Did you take advantage of the brand’s all-price happy hour to alleviate the pain (or joy) on this, the merriest day of years. Anyhow, check this out and if you’re into gaming mode, Sonic has a “Tax Cut” game for you to play here. Yes, the two guys are in effect as well, who give you some advice on how to attain the highest score. Credits after the jump.
Are you geared up for awards season yet? Well, whatever the case, the Art Directors Club has solidified its its 90th Awards juries with the additions of Taxi chairman/co-founder Paul Lavoie (pictured) and Wayne Best as Advertising and Hybrid chairs, respectively.
Best, if you best remember, left his ECD post at JWT last September to pursue a new “creative partnership,” which is a New York operation called Cog. Lavoie’s shop, of course, is now in the hands of Sir Marty and WPP. The Advertising and Hybrid categories have an entry deadline of Feb. 6. Check out the complete list of the aforementioned categories’ jurors, including Doner’s Rob Strasberg and W+K Amsterdam expat Jeff Kling, after the jump.
This spot from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners for the Logitech Revue with Google TV stars Ivan Cobenk, aka Kevin Bacon, who is an obsessed fan of, yes, Kevin Bacon (during the Footloose era of course) and uses his Revue to keep him immersed in everything Bacon. So much for a six degrees game.
Does this spot really show off the capabilities of the device? The message is whatever content you want to find, you can get through this device. Well, while we know for sure you won’t have a problem finding anything Bacon-related, it would be nice to see a little diversity. It would only help the product. Peep full credits after the jump.
