Ad of the Day: The Guardian - Three Little Pigs

This impressive commercial for The Guardian echoing a celebrated ad from the past asks how the newspaper would have covered the story told in the fairy tale about the Three Little Pigs. Interestingly, it's played with a very straight bat despite the absurdity of its subject matter.

Exciting, thought-provoking, ambitious and brilliantly put together. And yes - I would connect a newspaper to a fairy tale. BBH understand that The Guardian provide hundreds of stories a day. Why not use one universally known example and layer several different perspectives on top? A very, very strong piece of work any way you care to look at it.
