Cadbury’s Dairy Milk: Gorilla

Woah Lord!
Debuting on UK TV tonight, a new spot for Cadbury’s Dairy Milk looks set to lodge a certain Phil Collins “classic” well and truly into the collective short-term memory. Seriously, anyone who happens to be watching Big Brother this evening and clocks this fantastic minute-and-a-half spot from Fallon will be unconsciously pumping their fists and going “Woah Lord” til the early hours. You can watch it here.

Debuting on UK TV tonight, a new spot for Cadbury’s Dairy Milk looks set to lodge a certain Phil Collins “classic” well and truly into the collective short-term memory. Seriously, anyone who happens to be watching Big Brother this evening and clocks this fantastic minute-and-a-half spot from Fallon will be unconsciously pumping their fists and going “Woah Lord” til the early hours. You can watch it here.

Gorilla is the first in what’s set to be a series of ads that aim simply, as the Cadbury’s “Glass and a Half” website has it, “to make you smile” – in the same way the choccy bar does, of course.

The film (written and directed by Sony Balls creative director Juan Cabral) features some lovely touches – the hairy fellow even sports a studio ear-piece – and his facial expressions as the spot reaches its crescendo are a work of genius. Enjoy (we’ve embedded the film below).

The New Ugly

Following all the debate generated by our interviews with Super Super’s Steve Slocombe and 032c art director Mike Meiré, here is the piece from the current issue of Creative Review which draws on those sources to set the work into a wider context
Stretched type, day-glo colours and a flagrant disregard for the rules: are we witnessing a knee-jerk reaction to the slick sameness of so much design or a genuine cultural shift?
In the early 90s, the mother of all rows blew up between, on the one hand, the traditionalist school of American designers led by Massimo Vignelli and, in defiant opposition, the avant garde of Emigre and the Cranbrook Academy of Art. The catalyst was an essay in Eye magazine by Steven Heller entitled Cult of the Ugly, in which the world’s most prolific design writer took Cranbrook and its students to task over, as he saw it, their gratuitously ugly output. Well now, it seems, ugly is back.
