There seem to be a lot of noteworthy 50th anniversaries this year, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) as well as Amnesty International. It’s usually facile to make comparisons between our attitude to people and animals, so we won’t do that.
Coca-Cola, of course, has come unstuck with its ‘white cans’ WWF promotion aimed at helping endangered polar bears, but we won’t dwell on that either! So here’s a nice, simple ad ‘Side by side’ by Ogilvy & Mather London for the WWF.
Musing on this theme we also came across this anniversary film ‘Astonish Me’ for the WWF from writer Stephen Poliakoff and director Charles Sturridge, featuring Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy among others.
