Draftfcb Cape Town cleverly used the opportunity for the latest Savanna campaign. Savanna Wedding Crashers is offering one lucky crasher (and a friend) an all expenses paid trip to London to attend the royal wedding. To enter, aspiring crashers have to concoct a believable cover story explaining how they’re linked to the royal couple. They must then phone in to Grant and Anele's show on 5fm between the 28th of March and the 1st of April to share their story to win. The tactical campaign covers press, radio, Youtube clips and facebook ads created by Draftfcb with Quirk eMarketing and production company Wishbones.

Peperami has just launched a new “it’s a bit of an animal” advert to British TV viewers. The ad features the memorable self-cannibalising “animal”, from earlier Peperami ads, but now it has equally wild kids - “they’re bits of an animal”. Having recently split with Lowe, their agency of 15 years, Peperami opted to source the creative idea for this ad, not from an agency, but from the “people”. The latest ad was conceived and scripted by Rowland Davies, an ex-creative director from Germany who submitted his idea with Kevin Baldwin, a copywriter from London. Their joint effort beat 1,185 entries and won the $10,000 prize facilitated by crowdsourcing platform, Idea Bounty
