The sort of noisy ad telling you nothing that my tv controller would change channels to avoid.

I like it. Not as stuffy or "like your uncle trying to be cool" as the usual Telecom campaigns. Well done!

I wanna work in that office -
Never did mind the stuffed animals except the gorilla.

I figured if i were the king of England in the 1800's, the gorillas head would be firmly positioned at the pointy end of a stick mounted upon london bridge

Not a bad effort TBH, but it's still not enough to make Telecom a sexy, hip company.

find it interesting that mccallum and partners arent registered in the companies office, it would have more credibility if it was an actual case study...although that would also make it a bit weird with all the dancing and singing

undecided: find it interesting that mccallum and partners arent registered in the companies office, it would have more credibility if it was an actual case study...although that would also make it a bit weird with all the dancing and singing


So does that mean they could be done for false or misleading advertising then?

McCallum and Partners sounds like a law firm... partnerships of this nature aren't registered with the companies office so this means nothing.

Ana over at spareroom.co.nz has a real go at the ad..

She says its a fake because the people are actors...


I don't know about you all but it seems she is being a little unfair here...

Do I think the lady in latest fisher and pykle ad really falls off the balcony? In fact do I belive any mother on tv telling me about how her family use this or that ceral? no...


Apprantly Telecom is not allowed to put on a nice little ad on TV with out putting a disclaimer at the start...

Do you think this fair?
