Creative Director's Choice
My favourite piece of work is Channel 4's 'The Underdog' by 4Creative. I'm a sucker for using entertainment to make a serious point and Channel 4 gives a voice to those who don't get heard elsewhere.
Rather than shouting it and hoping someone might listen, they've done something much cleverer and invented a chat show host called the 'Underdog' - a character who doesn't say anything, but exudes a wanton disinterest in the serious points being made by his famous guests. This is the character's second run-out. And I hope they develop it further.
It's the kind of smart comedy work you see in America, but all too infrequently this side of the pond.

Olympic swimmers Jessica Hardy and Tyler Clary are the latest athletes to star in the Milk Processor Education Program's (MilkPEP) ongoing 'Built with chocolate milk' campaign.

Inspiring the Future: Redraw the Balance by MullenLowe LondonAdded 21 March 2016
MullenLowe has teamed up with International Women's Day charity Inspiring the Future to create a thought provoking campaign around gender stereotyping. The film features a class of children who have been asked to draw pictures of firefighters, surgeons and fighter pilots and, unsurprisingly, most of them draw men. The children are then stunned when a female firefighter, surgeon and fighter pilot enter the room. The aim of the ad is to raise awareness of how much needs to be done to challenge gender stereotyping, especially at a young age when these stereotypes are embedded in the next generation. It's proof that society still has a long way to go in defining gender roles more equally.
