Cannes International Advertising Festival Grand Prix winners

For the first time ever the Cannes International Advertising Festival’s Film category has awarded the Grand Prix to two entries: Cadbury’s Gorilla TV commercial, and Microsoft’s Halo 3 web film campaign.

The Cadbury Gorilla has been on YouTube for nearly a year. I guess because of the recent win Cadbury is rolling the TVC here in New Zealand for the first time, promoting it in todays Sunday Star Times. It’s a great piece of art that you cannot help but get sucked into.

The winning Halo TVC takes it’s lead from shows such as Band of Brothers, where old soldiers recount their experiences fighting the enemy. See it here.
