The Fauxlympics is just a hop, skip and a jump away from ending - six more entries:MasterCard, Oral B, Guinness and Braun

Tomorrow is the deadline for entries for the Drum's Fauxlympics in association with the Chip Shop Awards, and we can promise that no-one has deliberately tried to lose - they're all great.

Just come up with an idea? Email it to ishbel.macleod@thedrum.com, along with the agency name and creator's name (if applicable), the category you want to enter it into, and the brand the ad is for.

McCann Birmingham should be ashamed. Very poor taste and disrespectful to those brave souls that put themselves in danger

@webma17101 I agree, I'm sick of seeing 'shock tactics' used in an attempt to be funny. Its not clever, it's not outside the box, it's just rubbish, thoughtless & in such bad taste.

@webma17101 I think this campaign is about pushing the boundaries. I don't think any of them are to be taken in any way seriously.

Not sure what's worse. The ad, or ripping off a Jimmy Carr joke.

Your beef is with Jimmy Carr. It's his gag.

Just goes to show........McCanns can't come up with anything original, just because a crap comedian comes up with a gag doesn't mean you have endorse it in this way, don't try and defend this even if it is for a laugh in this context, no excuse @Gentle lovemaking

Agree. What were McCann Birmingham thinking! Poor taste, not funny and not creative. Who the hell signed that one off! Think alot of clients will be giving them a wide berth in the future.

I wouldn't want to be a McCann Birm client if it takes 12 people's time to rip someone else's idea off...
