The Return

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Writing for Advertising / TV & Cinema Advertising / 2008

To achieve this we needed a vehicle that could play on the great traditions of British comedy; in Al and Monkey we had the perfect pair to do it. Never before in advertising history had a branded property jumped brands, but with the campaign seeing a 15 per cent rise in sales and the nation falling in love with a fat man and a monkey, they were definitely the right duo to get people to put the kettle on.
